Default YMP 1/18 Masaaki is my hero...



X-ray what? This is the prototype NRX-18 designed by none other than Masaaki Hirosaka himself. For those of you that don't know, Masaaki is Masami Hirosaka's (bazillion times world champion in every form of r/c) father and mechanic. Also designs a good portion of the prototype equipment that finds its way onto Masami's car. Together they were YMP (Yokomo Miracle Products) and created such insanities as the special YRX10, MX-4 and MR-4TC versions. The new NRX-18 will be produced by NHW, the Hirosakas' new company in collaboration with a Chinese manufacturer.

I believe I heard that Schumacher USA was going to import these into the USA. However, I *could* be wrong. Adrian, if you're around and see this, could you confirm or deny this?

I think you're right Shane. I heard something about these as well.
