Default Wow!! Steve Wang is Back!!

Steve great to hear you are back.

Yokomo counldn't have picked a better person to run their U.S. distribution. I know with you in charge the customer service will be top notch!

I also want to add that you also picked a good man to take over your previous business (SpeedtechRC) and he has been great so far. I look forward to seeing your products there very soon.

With you handling the support and Jeff selling your products at HIS shop, I couldn't ask for anything better. Looks like I'll be buying Yokomo again.

+1

Hey Steve, from the original picture I posted and the Black and White photo of the BD5, there is barely any difference, visually. Do you think you could do a photoshoot with a 5000 mah LiPo battery on the car so we can all get an idea of what the car will look like with the standard battery as of late this year when carpet season ramps back up?

I am definitely thinking about, as komkit says, coming back home. Also, any news with Yokomo and a new Nitro on-road car as well? Are these rumors or is Yokomo developing a new nitro On-road car as well?

Thumbs up Yokomo Touring Car

I'm glad Yokomo is back with a new touring car.
I used to race with my YR-4M2 back in 97' and 98'.
It was a very competitive car back then!
Here's mine before I sold it last Summer.

I have the same one (except japanese version with small red shocks) hanging on my wall. I thought about getting some lipo saddle packs and racing it for fun.

Will the current exchange rate make the product less competitive in terms of price?

I still have mine, and the YR4-Masami and parts enough for an M2USA and M2PRO plus a YR4-Special plus a box full of parts(shocks, univ. oneways,& bulkheads)! Hence the name. Been thinking about parting with the stuff but I haven't got the heart to.
