    They are well worth it. KFC has stopped making hands for new figures after their MP SHockwave hands so most sellers aren't restocking once they sell out. After that you may still be able to purchase them directly from XTB/KFC via email inquiry.

    I bought the Tracks hands, fucking awful. If they weren't a kick in the balls to get off I'd swap the OG hands back on him.

    Really? Mine are awesome just like all my other KFC hands. Maybe you got bad set.

    I kind of doubt two sets of Tracks hands bought a couple months apart and from different sellers and another two sets of Seeker hands could all be from a single bad set

    Perhaps there was a bad batch.

    Could anyone who did that fix post some pictures of what part of each tab needs to be shaved off to make the torso stay together?

    I didn't buy it new - I also bought it several years ago - so no I don't think that would work - laugh

    Is the consensus that the KO Road Rage is better than the official? Both are still readily available so I was curious.

    My KO Road Rage has tight joints and rubber tires (just like my KO tracks). Just from that I'd say it is better. My KO Road Rage also came with a flight stand included. I don't think the official Road Rage came with a flight stand.
    I think youtuber RPA (RocketpunchArmy) did a video review/comparison a while back.

    Perhaps I will buy another one - and turn it into Shattered Glass Road Rage (with a simple sticker)

    I got my Road Rage from liujunling87_5 yesterday. The figure looks pretty good, but there are a few problems that make me wish I had just purchased the on-sale genuine from BBTS.

    A few parts of her transformation simply wouldn't work. The chest won't tab into the shoulders no matter how hard I try and the little flap on her right leg won't flip down to hide more of the gap between the foot and the leg.

    Also, her right foot is extremely floppy. She's the first TFer I've had in a long time that has a hard time standing up (rivaling my old Music Label Soundwave).

    Still, she will be perfectly fine standing on a shelf if I can figure out how to use Future or something similar to tighten the foot.

    Nice how the KO version has rubber tires.
    Keep us posted on how your fixes turn out.

    RPA did a pretty good video review.
