how did the rear suspension work on the yokomo? Was it a good handling car. Just to be different I am thinking of building a front wheel drive 1/10 on road car from scratch. What was that conomon like?

Heres my old YR-F2 Special:

Sadly now sold. I was too scared of running it and breaking something (with spares being so scarce).

I have a body I did for a FF02 car. Since the body is an Integra Type R, it would only make sense for the car to be front wheels drive. If someone can help me locate a FF02 for a reasonable price please let me know.

I posted pics a year ago but they got booted of the Rctech server... I'll have to take more/find more

I have a FF02 Castrol Primera special edition (came withe the can of Castrol blue paint, special suspension, special colored wheel nuts, and aluminum motor mount etc...)

and I have a YRF2 with a Honda Civic body from Frewer

I love my Yokomo... it handles brilliantly.. and from what I heard, it was banned from racing because it was an unfair advantage
