UB Funkey Speed Racer Hubs ~ starting to ship from Target & Amazon.com

Good news if you ordered a UB Funkey Speed Racer Hub with 2 Funkeys (speed racer & chim-chim) through Amazon.com that ships from Target. I noticed on my Amazon account that they started shipping the hubs yesterday! {update on 4/20/08: Only 3 of them shipped that one day, but none of the others since, so I don't know what's going on with that. However, someone posted a comment that they saw Speed Racer Funkeys in a Target store today. That's good news since they should be cheaper there than Toys 'r us}

I also wanted to pass on a warning about loading the software that comes with the Speed Racer hub if you already have the UB Funkeys game on your computer. Do not install it again or it will replace the files you already have loaded.

If you have the original or pink hub and have been playing the game, you should have already received the Speed Racer updates. That means you'll have access to Royalton Raceway as soon as you place a new Speed Racer Funkey on your hub (any of the hubs will work).

If you are not sure if you have the updates already, you can click here to read a previous post about what the updates look like.

Thanks goes to "grannyanne" who posted that on the Funkey Fan Forum . That warning might help others from losing their files as well.

update comes up. when it gets to 100% it says there was an error bringing the portal online.

That has got to be frustrating! The only thing I can think of is maybe your firewall is blocking it. Do you have windows vista? That's another thing that has caused problems in the past. If you are running Vista, right click on the UBFunkey icon on your desktop and run as administrator.
Other than that, I would say you should call customer support. If you need the numbers, let me know & I'll post them (US & outside of US).
Please let us know how this turns out.
Has anyone else out there had this problem?
