Man, when did that happen? I guess I'm not following the R/C buzz like I used to.

Anyway, back when I did run Yokomo, I pretty much considered Steve Wang and Speedtech R/C, Yokomo USA. Thats pretty much where I looked for all parts, orders, pre-orders, answers, etc... LOL

Good to see Yokomo Japan making it official with you Steve.

so yokomo is no longer out of the u.s.? i remember seeing they would only be offered in japan and we needed to get it through a dealer.


i have my rayspeed converted mr4tc and was thinking of selling because of lack of product availability... but this... this is beautiful!

We're on life support here, but Kevin Jelich and crew are building a kick ass asphalt track right as we speak, so that might just be the savior.

i respectfully think this is the old BD.

You can find a picture of the new BD there, although it is still very "raw".. but very much detailed already

http://www.petitrc.com/_forumphp//sh...ad.php?t=42491

Release date is March 24th in Japan.

Default He's right

He is right.
that pic is the old BD using the older graphite front arms on four corners and new suspension bitS...but the bulkhead are the currents.

Looks like the new BD appear to be somewhat lipo friendly...if you peek on the battery side the bulkhead is behind the last cell....
top deck looks to be equal length on both sides...or at least close.

I NEED ONE AS SOON AS IT COMES OFF THE BOAT...
I NEED ONE NOW!!!!!!!
