Seems like you can still buy these overseas:

I'm interested too, I got my RACE today. :)
(I went with the first edition for the F11 and F12 keys)

Holy crap! Thanks so much! I hadn't seen this.  Have you ordered from this site before?  I've ordered from overseas, but always through Ebay so I'm not sure how it works.

I totally in love the Race2.  60% boards are great and I've got a bunch, but for productivity, having the arrow keys and the home, end and Pg keys are amazing.

Update:  Well I've placed an order to one unit to check the quality.  If these are good products then I may order a few as part of a group buy if anyone else is interested.

Wow, that's good news. I'm reallly curious about the build quality and I am certainly interested... I haven't purchased anything off Taobao yet aside from keycaps, but I know some members here occasionally do.
Now all we need is some RACE keycaps .. got some?

Your Race didn't come with keycaps?

Slaction: you might also be interested in this for the RACE:

Those plates are nice, thanks for the link!

So as soon as the test unit I ordered arrives I'll post pics and info.

In the mean time, more good news for Race owners, I've heard that TEX has mentioned doing a limited run of Aluminum cases for the Race as well!  The price mentioned was only $90!  So a good amount cheaper than importing.  I don't have any direct confirmation on this yet, but hoping to get more info soon.

I'll update with any extra info I get, but either way, we'll get some aluminum cases one way or another!  ;D

Hi slaction, any word on the RACE 2 case? I'm anxious to see your results so I can buy one too. Also if you are doing a group buy, count me in :)
