Yeah, I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully they won't do like Losi and release a kit with absolutely no hopups.

Most likely the new car will be similar in looks and layout to the YMP option available for the MX-4.

Read down a bit and you will see it is possible that Yokomo will come out with a new car in the next 6 months. If you still want a special, it is a great car, go for it. I would leave the one-ways in, for durability parts you might want stronger front axels and some graphite shock towers.

LOL, what's the job?

Well since the kit comes with both a front and center one-way, installing the direct drive center pulley leaves you with just the front, if you want to go full dd, you need the buy a front diff. In general, the one-ways will be faster. If your track doesn't have much grip, or if your driving style is braking hard, you might want to go to dd.

Naw, apparently Masami and crew have just started testing and it is all very "hush hush" (think XXXS)

What shoud be the recommended length of the front and rear shocks? Do you guys use the longer shock-ends for the front and shorter shock-ends for the rear as per instruction?
