    Yslen - don't you find the overly rough texture on the space bar irritating?

    I think the only real difference Race2 will have is it will be platemount instead pcb mount, and available in some ISO layouts. Too bad they didn't fix that awful mess of a layout so it wasn't a total bitch to aftermarket keycap for it. Due to that it is still by far one of worst keyboard in that regard.

    The modifiers are like boring coloured Lego :D

    What are they worth to you Matt? I mean seriously, not in a profiteering way. I really bought the board off Yslen for the switches first and foremost so I might consider breaking her up.

    Trades would be considered also.

    Two caveats you are probably aware of but might not be:

    1) The 1x1 keycaps are not quite as thick as the modifiers.
    2) Due to the layout the profile of the arrow keys and home cluster will be wrong on a standard layout.
