If distribution in America can get sorted so they aren't either a) ridiculously expensive or b) always out of stock, maybe we can finally see some more Yokomo 1/12 over here

Categorize it as offroad and they'll overstock them.

This is going to sound like an odd request, but after spending some time trying the R12C3.1 over the past couple of months, my one big hope for the new car is that it doesn't pop wheelies quite as easily. For some reason (my current guess is pod and overall car length) the R12C3.1 pulls wheelies like crazy on the new CRC carpet, which makes the car rather difficult to drive in mod.

i thought having front external "shocks and dampers" was illegal for 12th scale pan cars for some reason.

According to what set of rules?

The R12C3.1 won Worlds with inboard springs and damper tubes, so clearly IFMAR is ok with it. As far as I am aware, there are also no ROAR rules against inboard/non-kingpin front suspension. The rule I think many people get caught up on is only for rear suspension:
8.7.3.5 Rear suspension and drive:
 Single, one-piece drive axle only
 No independent suspension allowed.

Default where to get one?

When the new version car actually becomes available for purchase somewhere on the planet, can someone please post that info here? The 3.1 edition car that I've been playing with lately is absolutely fantastic. So, if the new one improves even just a little on the current version, then I'll be quite the happy 1/12th scale camper.

Yokomo Europe (Mibosport) already takes preorders for the end of May.

If I see one Perry, I'll let you know. Is your phone number still the same?

Really liking the looks of the YRX12. They've put a lot of time and energy into this chassis. I hope Marc R. does well with this chassis.

Not sure you have to pay our European VATs when ordering from (and into) the US. You may have to pay import taxes in the states instead.
