Hi Blake,

The general misconception sometimes is that cars that are released later is ALWAYS better than its predecessor, and that's simply not true. Yokomo is and will continue to develop the SD series which in Japan is still the only way to go (shaft car) in 8 minute sportsman 23T racing. However some racers prefer the belt car, especially in modified or higher power motor class racing, so I'm glad to see that Yokomo is offering a belt platform for racers to choose from.

From what I understand, this car is closer than you think...let's just say that the yokomo guys plan on racing this car at the Reedy Race.

Steve Wang

LEM2 - Why do I have this feeling that regardless of what the chassis will be, you'll still be getting one? . . . . . I will.

Hahahaha!! Well, if it's tub then I won't have to worry about the scratches at the bottom of the chassis!! Driving a CF chassis make me go slower bec I do not want to make any mistakes and scratch te underside even with Bath tub tape.

If only we can make reservations!!

Dicort,

they will fit but the hinge pinholes are in a different spot so the suspension geometry would change, not sure if anyone has tried it.

Wow!!! A belt and a shaft. That's great news! When I saw the earlier post suggesting Yokomo might return to the belt, I was a bit P.O'd since I really like my CGM. But to release a belt drive while still supporting the shaft is really encouraging.

As much as I enjoyed racing my SP (still have it, BTW), for me the CGM is so much easier to drive fast, and maintenance is so much easier.

I too am interested in a belt drive Yok! Belt drive has always fit my driving style better. Now lets hope it come in under what the Worlds car was price wise....lol Man sedans are getting up their in price....that $150 for a mr4tc was nice to plunk down with a body....I always thought the car was better too plastic and was not as fast when you put all the graphite on it....lol

Thanks for the info!

Jeff

steve,
i'm thinking of getting a yokomo SD, either a black version or CGM special. But it seems a new version is coming out so do you think i should still get it now and then get the conversion kit when it's released? or i should just wait?

any idea what the conversion kit includes? i like the black version more but i heard the CGM uses better material on most of the parts apart from the upper and lower deck. So which version is a better base for the conversion?

Thanks
