It would be nice to see some expanded info about the car on yokomousa.com.

That was one of the things I really hated when I ran Yokomo cars, that the USA site was always a couple of 3 steps behind the Japan site.

The Japan site needs to share the love!

i hear that on a lot of oneway front diffs. that is too bad. lets hope the yokomo one is a bit tougher
I think you are confused, Most oneways suffer from bering failure. Yokomo has address this with the HD oneway by using a larger more ruged bearing that can stand up to the abuse. Now on the EVO III what's happening is a totaly difefrent story Most people cant finish a hole race because they are striping gears left and right. I hope this is not the situation with the SD. I would assume they will have anny problems ironed out by the release date. Yes they will make runnin changes and improve the car but it looks like It will be a contender from the get go.

BD,

Where did you read that Masami wasn't running the car in mod? The car looks AWESOME to me, but only time will tell. Probably is just a lot of hype. A new car is said to be coming out and everyone tries to find things wrong with them Oh well!

Alex kicked butt at the Nats.......

i didnt know people are wrecking the bevel and pinion in the Evo III. i thought it was the oneway bearing failure, since most of the time that is what goes first. i know yok makes a more beefy oneway for AE, so hopefully yokomo would spec something similar for the SD.

i was confused on the Evo III, my mistake. i thought their oneway bearings were failing, didnt know it was the gears. thanx for clearing that up for me

Yokomo SD price is around $320-$340. This is sure a over $300 car. Starting saving your money and get it next month. Good luck.

most shaft drive cars that used a one way front diff had failures. Even the associated tc3 had problems. Unless you have a ring and pinion gear that is very thick you will always have problems striping the gear on impact. Since I went to a front diff in my evo3 I havent had a problem with striping a bevel gear since.

smash123: Where'd you get that price quote from? I had heard that $280-290 was more likely.

I wouls also guess about $280 to keep it competitive with the FT TC3.

In Japan they will sell for 39000yen that's about $330.00 usd.
Haven't seen any pricing for the US yet. hopefully soon.

Man, I like the car and all, and I'm seriously considering putting one on pre-order, but with Losi and Associated both selling their top cars for around $270-$280, the days of $300+ cars is gone man!

I hope Yokomo has since enough to price this car competitively! Or they can watch it become the next KX-1!

alright, this information is per Yokomo USA

- The street price should be around $300-$310, depending of course on the hobby shop
- it will not be a limited edition kit, a plastic version will be released probably towards the end of summer
- the U.S. version kits will include a ball diff in the front instead of a oneway

Thanks for the info Matt.

I was wondering what the talk of the front one-way was about since Speedtech listed the car as having dual ball diffs.

No one-way? Bummer. That adds $50 to the price of the kit right off the bat.
