this is a problem?!? wow, you guys are a picky bunch aren't ya . i suppose they could have gave some sort of transponder mount, but i dont race so it doesnt matter for me.

there is nothing wrong with TB evo 3 unless he is talking about the torque steer that most shaft drive cars have. i personally dont like how the upper deck support encases the shaft on the EVO 3. it looks very clumsy and if the shaft ever becomes untrue its gonna bind the drivetrain.

Icon : Hey its Yokomo's fault we are so picky abt it I mean, my friends and I looked thru all the available specs for the Sd and we couldn't find a real fault on it... YET.

The car adressed most if not all the problems of the original belt driven MR4. What with the TRIPLE decked chassis it shd be stiff. I can't wait to drive it

There are problems with the Evo 3's one-way gear apparently... most people find that it strips after a sizeable crash... that's definitely something to consider.

What worries me is why Masami doesn't seem to think the car will hold up to the power of a modified motor. Is it that fragile? Is he worried about something structurally with the car or performance wise?

Personally, I think that bit of info is just to keep people from completely dropping the idea of MR-4TC. Yokomo knows that the SD has not been released yet as well as the fact that when it is released it will be very limited to begin with until production can catch up. I would bet once the SD is in full swing, even Masami will use the SD for mod motors.

Leon: you probably hit the nail on the head. Yokomo doesn't like to let go of their older cars even after they have something better on the table. Remember when the MR4 first came out? Even after their drivers won several events with the sport model, Yokomo continued to insist that their older car was still their "team race car"......yeah....okay Yokomo I think the same type of thing is going on here.


Sorry if i missed this guys.....but, has there been any speculation as to the price on the kit. I need to have an specific amount to beg my wife for.
