Default Any news from our RC racers in Japan

Hope that the country can rebuild and everyone will get back on their feet. Just haven't heard any word from any of our racing friends.

Hi Scarecrow,

I got an e-mail from Teru (Xenon) saying he was alright. I know they're doing voluntary black outs right now to conserve energy. It's a very sad situation. Hopefully, things start to look better soon.

The Japanese people should be very proud of how well they've handled themselves.

Take care.-Bruce

As Bruce stated, rolling black outs to save energy. Transit system has been shut down time to time to save energy as well, so some people cannot make it to work.

You could drive, but roads are pretty damaged as well so not much of that going on either.

This poses some problems for us (KO) as we manufacture pretty much everything in Japan. Factories don't have problems in making the products, but delivering them to the KO Japan warehouse/corporate office in Tokyo poses some delays but we should be in good shape.

I have definitely been praying daily for safety and security when it comes to the Japanese people. They have handled this tragedy in the best way, if there is such a thing. Japan will come back stronger than ever as their wonderful people rebuild. I think I speak for all the rc racers in my area when I say... we support you, Japan!

This from Yokomo letting everyone know they are alright.

Glad to hear. What's happened is just staggering, the destruction is something we just couldn't comprehend here in the UK. Its amazing anything is left after a 8.9/9.0. Almost makes other earthquakes look like childsplay.

All the best to everyone out there in Japan.

From Kyosho America via FaceBook:

We just received a report from Kyosho Headquarters in Japan. Everyone there is OK. Unfortunately parts of the country are in real bad shape. Our thoughts our with those families who have been effected.
