Where can I actually go (online) to get some Yokomo stuff? I've checked Tower, Hobby People, and HobbyTown USA. When you click the Add to Cart button on the yokomousa.com website, there's a message that they closed their web store on Dec 31st, 2008.

Thanks for any help, I'd rather not write this kit off just yet...

GenkiDoriDori was the only place I could find that had steering knuckles for my MR4TC SD, they have some Yokomo bodies there, as well, and some of the drift upgrade kit parts.

If you're doing a lot of drifting, I'd look into the one way center shaft... I'm loving mine, for both drifing and racing.

I busted a spool outdrive yesterday. If you loose or bend the rings for the drive cups, Tamiya ones fit. Still waiting on my harded steel diff halves. The aluminum Yokomo ones are in very bad need of replacement! I'm also working on a fix for the steering rack slop. Car is doing great otherwise. Yesterday was just one of those days....

I just placed an order from you last night! Get it here quick!! hehe.

No, replacement cups do not come with aluminum rings, you have to order those separate. I do not think you have rings listed on your website. Luckily I had my 415MRE and spares with me at the track yesterday. Or I would not have been able to race.

Here is how bad the outdrives wear. I have to deal with this till my harden steel outdrives come in. Hopefully this week. Hey Martin, can you pass this on to Yokomo? Ask them to make blade versions. Either that, or I hope Team Bomber does.

It wouldn't be sealed like the BD5 outdrives. I'm talking about diff and not spool. I just found their email. So I'm gonna ask them about it.

Yeah, I just emailed them. Hopefully my hardened steel outdrives will be here before the weekend. I'm sure they will last. But they will be just a little heavier than stock.
