Default Vintage Yokomo

I am going threw all my old stuff. I can across this car what apears to be a older Yokomo car. I was wonder if you can take a look at it and tell me what it is and what would be a reasonable price to ask for it. Looking to list it here on rctech.

This is what I can tell from just looking at it.

Carbon chassis
Belt drive , possible one way on the center layshaft?
Unique top deck. Has adjustable spring system to adjust flex?
Team Yokomo Zero Mod motor
Yokomo/USA Tekin M Star Gold esc.

Thank







s for taking the time to read this. Any info on this car would be greatly appreciated.

Looks to be a YR4-M2, Japanese version with the micro shocks. I don't have too much idea on a selling price.

Yes, it is YR4-M2. I remember that there was a Masami version and that it was based on the old YZ-10 buggy. Put it on Ebay and let people bid. I have seen vintage cars have bids at the end of the auction for over 150USD and even higher if it was a NIB vintage car

Yeah, that's the YR4 M2 Japanese version. I still have mine sitting right here next to me. I thought I seen them a year or 2 back on some website for sale for like $98 new. But I can't remember where. I think they came out in 97. I still have the original box and instructions with mine. It was my 2nd touring car back in the day...

Thanks KilRuf. Is there any market for the car? Sounds like I would be doing pretty good If I got $50-75 . What do you think.
