There are coming, sooner or later. I just finished sorting through them, and I have 153 in total, spanning 36 different companies.

This is taking me longer than usual because I spent so much time working with the new design for the site. Sorry again for the delays.

The bottom line is that I should have pushed the new design through long ago, and had all of this mapped out before I got down to the show. I probably would have had all the pictures up by now, were it not for the fact that we had a housewarming party here at my new house on Saturday, and that took up pretty much the whole day. Oops. heh

Well, the YokomoUSA website shows a new MR4 BC being released soon... Could this be the "real" Yoke? I guess this might explain why AE drivers (who have always run Yokomo 4WD cars)have been running the Durango up to now - I would imagine that they're not going to run something that can't be purchased by consumers in the states) (prototypes excluded, of course ) ?

As fas as I can tell it looks like the 1/12 TC form Xray. This one has also blue/white/grey/black colored chassis!

Sweet!


Have you seen the Evo 2 in blue as well? (in blue the duraluminium parts)

That was the mini. There is a rumor that around December Xray will release the EVO2 with this new blue scheme. Now that would be extremely sweet!

They already had a version of the MR4 BC out here, but like I said, it was a joke. I dont know if it was meant to be a sport kit or what, but the car was entirely made of plastic (including the shock bodies) and I never saw any aftermarket parts released from Yokomo for the car. I hope their new buggy is a hit, 4wd is my favorite off-road class actually, but if the class does get going again, I'll be running Losi, they put a lot of time into their 4wd cars development.

The mr4bc just won this years japanese off road nats.
the new version has aluminum shockbodies and a beefed
up rear shock tower. As for performane the AE drivers have
tried the new yok and from what i heard they are pretty happy
with it.

Yokomos web site sure does not tell you a lot about the car. I hope it is better then what I have heard so far. I would like to get a 4wd buggy, but I really want to avoid the Losi. Not because it is bad, but because everyone has one.

Once again that is the car that was released in Japan, the one we got over here was crap... I hope they do release their good offroad buggy over here, get more interest in the class.
