It's SOOO NICE to see the cars without fans, heatsinks, diodes, etc piled all over them!!!

I'm beginning to think most of you enjoy the internet bashing and complaining about stuff you never have experienced more than just racing If 4 cell stinks then it won't be around very long.

Congrads to Masami and everyone that raced!

Looked like a great race. Close times and good close racing. It certainly does not seem that 4 cells harmed the event.

Atsushi Hara Hot-Bodies Cyclone 18pt
Shinnosuke Adachi KYOSHO 15pt

These 2 guys were x-yokomo drivers also. So they know the track very well!

Congratulations to Hara and Adachi who used SMC batteries and Billy Easton using Brood/SMC so this makes 3 drivers in the top 10 using our packs in a foreign race. The cool thing is that these racers have access to pretty much any packs and they decided to run our packs which is flattering.

I hope we can continue to help and support these great drivers in future events.

I think Yatabe is not only yokomo home, but also all japanese drivers'. And Masami has been winner at some other tracks.

Ha ha ha ha, some funny things said on this thread. Right I am here in Japan right now, having assisted helping Chris Grainger from the UK.

Masamis car was an out of the box masami kit, with just the rear shock tower changed to the normal height one ie not the masami version. He was running a GM speedo, because he preferred the feel of it. Motor wise, 23T are you kidding man! He was running a 6turn, as were most people, it was just in the stock can, don't know why. Masami has a motor man from Yokomo, Kitizawa.

Hara ran both SMC and Checkpoint batteries, Duane was pitting next to him. Checkpoint motors looked very good. On Haras car the servo was mounted in the conventional place, what you can see is the receiver pack.Standard 6 cell chassis. He was using his normal Hara speedo. No new bits for the HB car, although the Moorspeed Worlds car is now available here.

There was a guy which made the main that ran the shaft drive worlds version yokomo, looked very good, easier to durate. I think most of the Yokomo team stuck with the belt car because they were just more comfortable with it.

Tamiya were unlucky with Marc, he made the B, finished 6th in that i think. Because the grip level decreased each day on the 1st day of qualifying you had to get your time in, unfortunately he didnt manage that and had to make do.

Everyone ran the Ride Stratus Mark III bodyshell, various shells were tested.

4 cell, unless you have properly raced it you cannot understand how hard it is, its destroys the cells in 1 run, because of the current the motor is pulling. So new cells every run. The motor has to be just right, although it does do alot more runs and doesent burn up. Duration is really tight, not one person can actually make 5 minutes, they all go flat on the last 3 laps, watch the videos! Even Masami, Hara etc.

Although they are pretty quick.

WoW! There lucky they only need to have packs with 4 cells then...

But itīs always the same in Japan. New cells one time only.
I have been there twice, so Iīm not that worried this is " a must".
We needed new ones every run as well, and it was 6 cell at these events.
They have new tires for each and every run, incl. pratice as well.
Japan is fun, but somehow extreme

Interesting to see that Masami used a chassie for 6 cell, while Hara & Adachi have custom 4-cell spec chassie.
Also big congratiolations to Danny / Jack (SMC) for get there batteries 2:nd & 3:rd!
