Get ready to ship one over to the UK also :P

Ahh I remember when i got my SD from you before it was out in this country

Depending on when the HB car comes out, me and sleighty may just buy them both on the same shipment.

Hi Guys,

We had a long chat with Yokomo today about this car, and we are really trying hard to get the price down on this car, but there is also a lot of good hop-ups and option parts already included in the kit so it is difficult to bring the price down. But I think there are a few things Yokomo is going to implement in terms of how to ship the car kit over hear that's going to help reduce the price. We hope to have the pre-order up with our best estimated price by tonight.

One good thing though, end of March release date is a realistic date in which they are shooting for, so this might be the first new car to make it to the market in 2005!

Default Rear diff access

if you look close.. looks like you can remove the rear diff by unscrewing the top portion of the bulkhead. a definite plus. im sure the front is the same way.

In the Yokomo USA website description, "front and rear aluminum suspension mounts (split type mounts for easy belt removal)," I think its refering to the bulkheads.

Just thinking about it, do they class the CGM as a different car to the SD? although its essentially the same car.

They cant have three cars on the go! lol
