    Hey, I've been an r4+wood user for a while(r4 1.18 FW for ages) and just recently my r4 started freezing on every game (no, it's not AP) and it happens maybe 10 minutes 1 time and 2 hours next time, to check if it was my r4 I played my old mario kart DS game and I played it for 3-4hours and no freezing, so does this mean my R4 is dead and if so... is there a shoptemp shop in Australia, victoria, like a real shop not internet (because I don't have a credit card and my dad says he does not want to use his)??

    Might be a contact issue. Tried the paper trick?

    I have a market nearby I can get genuine R4's there but they like $50-60 (Australian money) and shoptemps are $6!!

    and out of curiosity, if I get it shipped to Australia how long will it take to ship out here?

    Shipping takes between 2~5 weeks.
    This is often a high estimation, and more often than not, it takes about a week.

    Go for the $2 shipping, it will give you tracking.

    With ShopTemp you will pay through PayPal, at no point do they get access to your card or it's number. It will be completely safe to use your dads card.
