can i know wats the pros and cons for both the cars before i decide to buy 1.thanks.
any advice will help to prior buying 1 1/12cars.
I have a Yrx-12 WE and its a very nice car. The kit did come with a body (not one I would use, but a clear lexan body). I found that parts were somewhat difficult to get. I had to switch to AE t-bars and pivot balls and sockets because I couldn't get the Yok t-bars.
I raced the car quite a lot last summer on asphalt and it worked well. I made some modifications to the car but its pretty effective stock.
I don't know much about the Kawada, although I do have one on order right now. The parts availability should be a lot worse than the Yokomo, no one seems to even carry the kit. I ordered it through a LHS but I expect long waits when I have to order parts. I am not sure about this but I think the Kawada has a unique wheel/hub set-up so the car won't take the AE style wheels (TRC, Parma, Jaco). That is a major inconvenience if you want to race the car.
I'm attaching a picture of my YRX-12 WE
