Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

SCHUMACHER. I think you're right about parts interchangeability with the MR4. As you say, SCREWS........if you're lucky.

But it certainly looks a nice car. I can't wait.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

the screws...most probably...

Hey guys, where can I find more info on the car. The only news I've seen has been on Orions News Feed thing on the front page of RcTech.

I didn't see anything on YokomoUSA's site.


Thanks.

They said in the next few weeks something will be posted...
If you find out anything new...just post it here...

I'm seriously considering picking one of these up as soon as it comes out.

Only thing that makes me hesitate is that Yokomo likes to do running upgrades to their new kits and the first run kits are rarely as good as those that come out, say.......a month later.

But, dang.....that car looks sweet.



And I hadn't planned on getting another elec. TC anytime soon. O'well!

Hey guys, I been talking with yokomo about the new car and it seems that the molded parts are going to be a molded composite, and not molded graphite. All the parts will also be symetrical, being right side and left side parts are going to be identical. All the A-arms are also identical front and rear. the only parts that I was told will work from the old cars are the cvd's the rear ones work in the rear and the front uses the front axle with the dogbone off the rear of the car. differentals are going to be the same material as tc3 diffs and are the same front and rear, technically you can use dual one-ways? Thats all I have for now, I let you know more when I get more info. Nick!

darkseid:

from the pictures the car looks very complete with upgrades and features. i mean it already has full silver graphite plates for the chassis, upper deck, and shock towers, yokomo's top of the line aluminum shocks, and i see some choice machined aluminum pieces throughout the car. the only "upgrades" that the car is missing are molded graphite parts.

c'mon dude, how can you say no to silver woven graphite .

Default Center Brace

Looks like there is a supporting brace in the middle of the chassis

Chassis + brace + upper deck

the SD should be quite stiff!
