Does anyone know who has the BD5WXC in stock ?

Some shops have the WX, others have the WXi, but I haven't seen the WXC anywhere.

I don't need the LiPo, but I don't want the "i" version (which I believe has a stiffer chassis plate for carpet racing).

Yokomo Japan has just confirmed our distribution rights of their products here in the US, and we will be supporting all the new vehicles that are currently available, including this newly announced BD-5 touring car.

We are still in the early stages of setting up, but we should be fully operational by mid-March. And we will be taking pre-orders on this new car once we get our e-commerce site fully operational.

Some of you might recognize my name in association as the owner my previous business (Speed Tech R/C) and it is through our great relationship with Yokomo Japan from my previous business that they have entrusted me with now distribution of Yokomo products for the US market. I look forward to serving needs of loyal and new Yokomo customers.

I will be posting details of the new BD-5 shortly. Thanks everyone.

Sincerely,

Steve Wang
Was this an April fool's thing? Was there ever a Yokomo America? No U.S. support as far as I can tell.

3 years have past since that post, the deal didn't work so Yokomo USA never materialized.
