Warning..may be a stupid question lol....... but what are you referring to when u say the cars are touching the carpet ....can you not get any chassis to hit the carpet?

Theatriks, syndrome is just saying they've won a lot of races on carpet with the car.

Personally, I think that is primarily due to Volker and Naoto just being absolute beasts on carpet. They happen to race for Yokomo. I'm sure the car works very well though.

They aren't mounted on an angle, its just an "L" shape. This would make it almost impossible for them to move in a crash, very smart idea

I'm assuming to give the car more flex..

The official release info is up on the Yokomo site.

If anyone is at RC Champ on the 27th or Yatabe arena on the 28th... It might be your lucky day!

I imagine places like Futaba RC Pro Shop will have it up for pre-order within the next day or two.

They have had the R12 Worlds conversion up for a bit now.

RC Market has been supplying and supporting Yokomo customers in the US for many years.

Unless there is significant market in the USA, a local US distributor may not happen. Yokomo is strong in the Asian countries and some parts of Europe.

If you look closely at the front suspension pic. It may be the angle the pic was taken but does anyone else notice a hint of KPI in those new steering knuckles? If you look at the axle line compared to the kingpins.

Reading Japanese that has been translated to English by a machine makes my head hurt. Still it is exciting to see this new car come out. Maybe I can find a deal on a pristine BD5.
