Default Yokomo

Is the Yokomo 1/12TH just like a 12R5.1? Anyone have a picture with the body off.

That looks a lot like a torsion bar with a center damper.
Not sure that has been tried in 12th yet, i.e. not like the old Delta car.
Don't see any kingpin springs.

Loose is fast I guess.
You can hear Scotty comment about Naotos' car not being hooked up, but the dude is FAST !
Reminds me of the way Kevin Jellich use to run his cars.

It's hard to describe to some folks just how good those guys are.

I was thinking that. None of the cars look that good but it must be working.
