cannon- No not at all, I am quite happy with my Jconcepts. The Yokomo, I have seen this car, had quite a good look at Neils car at the worlds, it is a very nice piece of work. It would quite easily dispose of a XX4 in my opinion.

Having said that, so is the Jconcepts and since i bought my worlds edition back from Italy, it has been dialled on every track i have gone to. Feels much better than my previous "4wd benchmark", the xx4.

A whore? I think im a little more loyal than most racers out there.

cannon- dont worry i had a good laugh. i just had to clear up the situation because i think alot of people thought i was going back to the yoko.
Personally, i think a racer who could race both cars (ie have both in the stable) would be lethal.

memyselfandi- i had a good look at the 4wd and 2wd's. The 4wd was much nearer to production back then and looked very impressive. The 2wds got better all weekend, Mark could have made the final going into the last round, just had some bad luck in his qualifier. Same with 4wd.
