Default Yokomo MR4 mini

Does anyone states side have one yet? Where can I get one in the US??? Also how much should I expect to pay??

They look like a blast and I was planning on getting a pair, 1 for me, and 1 for my wife. She had an MR4TC a few years ago and was disappointed when we got rid of it, now she has a Tamiya mini, but this should be worlds better!!! Now we just gotta decide on powerplants....LOL

The only problem I see with it is it is only a 4 cell car, and most of the Mini's that I have seen are 6. A 4 cell mod class would be a blast, but getting everyone to convert would be a b!tch.

I was considering RCO but it's too far away. If there's going to be some TC action at The Track I'll be there. Will anybody be running TC, most people will be running 1/12th right? I figure I could just stick on some hard springs and hope for the best. 30wt oil isn't the best for carpet though. LOL
