The guy on the right is the Manager/Boss of Yokomo. He drives the new 911 Turbo.. in yellow!
Yes, it's a very very nice Porsche

on the Tamiya site it mentions that a TLT-2 (tentative name) will shown at the show. Did you see anything with that name?

do you have plans (please say you do) of importing the Ride bodies??? please please please??? it'd be a nice change to see an Acura TSX mixed in with our nice selection of Stratus, Mazda6 and Alfas

btw.. that TSX is probably the best looking body out there right now. the real ride looks nice too
now if they would only do a TL

Stumper,

There were a few TLT on display, and some of them were highly modified (with Tamiya's graphite side plate chassis) I'll have pictures up as we continue with the report, I didn't see a name however, so I don't know if it was the TLT-2 that I was taking pictures of.

Asimo,

Unfortunately no. The show was about 3 hour drive from Yatabe from what I understand. I did check out the Tamiya track in Japan and also this local track by Alex Racing (called "R/C Heaven") Both excellent facilities.

I've heard that LRP was at the show and was displaying a new charger - the Pulsar Competition 2. Any news on that??
