I guess you guys are right,
I've been looking closely to the picture(s) and you can see the slots.
But I'm still wondering what kind of material it's made of...

Hot bodies
The car looks like the TRF415, EVO IV, XRAY, MI2, and HB all mixed up in one car, looks good. so what is the release date? anybody know?

I've heard it should be out before the Reedy race in May but I'll try to find out exactly when Yokomo USA opens up in the morning.

It might be that quick, after all, the suspension pieces are the same from the SD, and the graphite is quick to cut. The only thing that will probably hold it up is the aluminum pieces.

This going to be a rubber tire car then from the looks of it? Flex to much for a carpet/foam tire car?

If it is in the vain of the 415....how does that car do on the rug?


Thanks

Jeff

Yokomo designed this car for where the majority of racers race them, outdoors. We can only hope that BMI or someone else does a thick chassis and topdeck to make it more suited for carpet racing for those of us that do.
