Default Yokomo F1

I'm surprised nobody seems to have seen it here. There was pictures on petitrc a few days ago but they seem to be gone, anyway a quick google search brought this :

Now if people could decide on a set of rules for width... I'm definitely in favor of rubber ( if you want foam pan car you got 1/12 and wgt) but have no opinion on width. Just don't want to buy a car and find out it's too wide or too narrow. What rules do they have in Japan ?

It was discussed about a month ago, in the f1 thread.

As you can probably guess, Japan is happy to run foams and wide, but all you have to do is fit the Tamiya F104 front end on it to make it narrow.

ah ok, my bad.

The Yokomo front end is definitely sexier than the tamiya though, not to mention the fact that the camber is adjustable out of the box ( yes I know of the exotek upper arms). Anyway, looks nice apart for the plastic rear hubs. edit: I'm not sure where are the springs? and how do they control droop ? in this regard the tamiya sure seems better.
