Does anyone have any official data form Yokomo about the new car. I want to decide what to do with my BD. Most of what I do depends on when the car will come out. It looks too good for me to pass up!

I don't believe that the original BD required a complete over haul. The things you listed and the different steering rack were the only parts that people have changed to get more steering and flexibilty in the car.

Just my two cents worth.

I'll be up for the new car when released.

Later

On a previous post they are saying that this is a proto-type. I am just happy to see developments on a replacement Yokomo TC, prior to the Worlds later this year.

I am still very happy with my BD's both running the CGM steering modification and the HPI C hub.

That car Masami was running is different to previous prototypes. That is just a BD with the prototype top deck and suspension.
The one at the show was totally new, new bottom deck and bulkheads etc
