I dont think they are shipping to the U.S.. I contacted them a few months ago and was told that they didnt want to deal with the shipping issues. If you can find sombody in the UK to purchase the chassis for you, then they could ship it. I also dont know if it would really be worth it to spend all that money on it when you could just get a cgm tub for quite a bit less money. Im sure the cgm tub is just as stiff and much easier to get ahold of. Just my opinion.

Sure is weird but it must be a family trait or something, because if there is a shit one off the production line it will no doubt end up being the one I purchase.

Bloody dealer should replace bits like that but Oooooh no not our product that sort of stuff doesn't happen etc etc blah blah.

Should add....split = hair line fracture over entire depth of block around ball stud.

Maybe the only one in the US!!! It loves carpet, asphalt, foam tires, rubber tires, doesn't tweak and it's more open (and better looking) than the CGM. More money yes. Bling, bling... big time. Goes and handles like stink too. Plus everyone comes to your pit and says, "That's that car from Europe, right?" I love that part.

Put it like this I want another but with many pleading emails to Andy East it's still no.

I got the chassis from a guy in the UK on this site. "Acutts" is his handle. I paid $175 from him. He hadn't used it and was selling Yokomo stuff at the time. Brand new from him and some guys didn't want to spend the money. Let me say this car is straight carbon fiber not carbon graphite. With all electronics and no body the car weighs about 48 oz.

Isaac's car is the bomb!!!!!!!!!! I have seen it in person and it is alot better than that picture I can assure you. If I had that chassis I would still have my Yoke.

with all the people that have interest in this chassis, why hasn't anyone in the UK started selling them? I understand the manufacturer doesn't want to deal with the U.S. market but someone could be a middle man and make some money by selling them to us.
