Thanks...I know lots of questions...I too have been a yokomo fan for a long time and want to get back into one.

The price will probably be kinda high. I'm not sure if it's SDW type high but definetly higher than the regular SD kits. If I were to guess I would say between $350-400. It seems this is where the market is now for TC's

I guess then a mid motor more like the new losi mixed with the Corelly...Very interesting. I think I will preorder one ASAP...LOL oh have I said I am getting this one....Oh yea I am getting one...LOL
April needs to come NOW.
That is when the Babcock series starts...Man try to get use to another car right before a series...Man I might have to wait to put the BD into action until I get it all tuned up...From the sounds of it the BD is going to have all the HOP UPS already attached which is better than getting a sub-par car and making it all hopped up. I hope the pictures are up and running soon. I already added that site to my favorite.
Take Care All & GOD Bless

Actually it looks more like the new Xray except all blue in all.
LOL
Hope Xray fans don't get too upset.

Great Job Tzer!

I'm looking at the battery cutouts on the main deck.
What's that grey stuff, if you ask me those are cut outs like the 415 has for its motor to reduce tweak.
Am i right, or could it be something else?

For the rest there aren't much things I haven't seen before, looks good though.

I'm not sure if anyone noticed this too, but the layshaft pullies, there are one on each side of the spur gear, instead of having the two pullies together like most cars. I think this will apply more even pressure to the layshaft as the pullies spins. Can't quite see the upper deck on the car though...looks to be a slim upper deck. It looks like the motor mount and one side of the rear bulkhead is actually one piece.

We did see the Japanese Yen MSRP price for the car, so I think we can crunch some numbers and figure out a estimated pre-order price by Monday. Sorry guys I wasn't able to get pics for you all but glad to see they are available a day early
