Speaking of amain, when did prices for everything double? I used to buy shock springs for $5.00, arms for $7.00, not both are over $10.00 each. What gives with that? Price gouging?. Anyone else doing Yokomo distribution in the US now? It went from being one of the least expensive to nearly the most expensive to maintain.

I told you A-main has gone crazy with their prices now. Shock shaft that were 7$ are now 12$ All the Yokomo parts have gone up in price...

Then I saw the same for other things like AE part numbers. Way more than what Tower is charging. I with there was another source for Yokomo part beside A Main.

I looked at the prices from the UK and they are just stupid high.

year over year JPY to US exchange is up 25%. Doesn't account for doubling, but its a low margin business

True but the CA kits are 26,796yen, or $263USD as of this posting at Banzai for example: http://banzaihobby.com/Yokomo-B-YZ2CA Shipping is $21USD. In other words, something doesn't add up imo...

To buy from anywhere in Europe, ask the seller for a vat-exempt price quote; you'll typically pay 20-25% less than what is shown on the website.

Does anyone happen to know where to find a spring rate chart for Yokomo springs? The chart on the petit site doesn't have the rates of the springs I have for my buggy. For instance the rate for these :

https://www.amainhobbies.com/yokomo-...-a1175/p417649

And also the rates for the matching fronts and so on.

Thank you in advance for any help.

This is a special price that the Japanese shops (via Yokomo) are doing to celebrate Yokomo's recent win in the touring car world champs. It's a temporary thing so it's not really a fair comparison.

Mibosport seems like the only place to buy from anymore. I doubt Yokomo will survive this unless they get their own Distribution in North America.

They can't do their own distribution. They have a contract with Swift/Amain to be the exclusive US importer.
