I love Yokomo, and the progress the Masamis' have made to their entire line of cars; and the idea of Papa M. venturing out on his own- GREAT!!, but 1400 bones- COME ON- that's laughable
I have to admit though, if I had the bread, I'd go for one...

This is an interesting idea actually. It is a real 'pro-built' car.

I would imagine that this car would be less expensive than making Hara an offer to buy one of his cars....

The price isn't really that outrageous. Consider this, the price of the car with all the hop-ups, conservatively at $500. For additional $900, somebody who wrenched for a son that is a multiple world champion, will meticulously build and tune if for you, to me sounds fair. I guess if you can afford it, and want it, why not??

Not sure if you guys know this, but Masaki no longer works for Yokomo. He is not a 'free agent' and has been helping other companies do some R&D. He's been seen in the Kyosho camp quite a few times.

Saw the prototype of the ALF-05.... (RC World Feb.2005)

Not a bad looking car. The chassis is super narrow and upperdeck is adjustable for different level of flex like SP SSG.

Sure if some people are willing to pay over $5000 for a watch, why not a custom made R/C car?
Just curious, how much M. Schumacher sell his limited autographed helmet?
