Default Yokomo 4WD Prototype Photos and Specs

CML are pleased to release a few new shots and specs of the new Yokomo prototype 4WD buggy expected early in the new year.
Chassis:

Optimized Weight Distribution - 3:3 battery and center motor layout for optimum weight distribution.
Top/Bottom Split Aluminum Bulkhead - Front and rear bulkheads are split top/bottom for easier maintenance.
Machined Aluminum Bulkhead - Standard equipped with precision machined aluminum front, rear and center bulkheads.
Battery Tray - The popular battery trays used for the BD competition touring car are used. Filing of the battery slots is not required
Drivetrain:

Front/Rear Wide Belts - Low friction wide belts are used for the front and rear belts.
Overall drivetrain performance is enhanced by reducing belt skipping to very minimum, while also improving durability.
Equal Length Front & Rear Belts - Equal length belts are used in both front and rear.
Optimum drivetrain load distribution. (Note: Width of the front and rear belts are not the same.)
Eccentric Belt Tensioner - The eccentric type(eccentric cam system) belt tensioners popular on the BD are used, allowing small adjustments to belt tension to be made.
Adjustable Center One-Way - An easy-to-adjust adjustable center one-way comes standard for improved adjustability.
Double Pad Slipper Clutch - Standard equipped with a highly effective and very durable double-pad type silpper clutch.
Internal Drive Ratio - 2.2(Large:33T, Small:15T)

Suspension:

Newly Designed Oil Dampers - The oil dampers feature a completely new design. Shock internals can be accessed from either top or bottom, for easier maintenance.
New Suspension System - A completely new C-hub and steering block system is used. Front and rear suspensions feature completely new designs. The new suspension components are both lightweight and durable.
Aluminum Suspension Mounts - Front and rear aluminum suspension mounts come standard. Rear suspension mounts feature ball supports.


Model Name: TBA
Price: TBA
Available: Launch around Feb 2006

I sure hope they come out with a plastic or fiberglass version for those of us who don't want to spend $400 for a buggy.

Anybody know who distributes Yokomo in the US/Canada?

There is no way in hell I would run a buggy like that. You would encounter countless rebuilds just like you would with any old yokomo buggy. It just doesn't make for a fun day at the track. Any hopes of sealing it up are cancelled out by the little part where the 35 amps of power being flushed through the car with get a little too hot if the buggy was to be sealed up, like the schumacher buggies with that thing plastic scrape gaurd thing.

And yet none of that even cares cause I'd bet none of you can drive like Ryan Cavaleiri or any of the other worlds contenders.......

I didnt say it won.... Check the times cavaleiri never had the quickest time, billy easton x2 and maifield in the final.

And Neil Cragg was the ONLY one to crack into the 26 second barrier with a Yokomo Prototype, the only one to get into 26's

Yes, they tried to sale old kits as 4wd stadium trucks to bashers, bashers didn't want to pay $250 for a rolling chasis though.
