I would like to more!! A Rear Wheel Drive, Mid Engine, 2 Wheel Drive TC With full suspension is right up my alley.

Where can you get one in the USA. I have tried the regular places. Horizon, Tower, Amain. NO luck.

I have been tinkering with building a 2wd TC. This is my test chassis which is a conversion of a Tamiya TA04.







Cheers All.

I tried every place that carried Yokomo back in the spring. No one in the States sold it. Or even knew of it. I ended up buying from overseas.

You can find the drift version. But not 100 percent same. TC version does come with the drift parts though.

Unfortunately I’ve yet to be able to try it on carpet. I know that was what it was intended for. But been happy with it. As has every other person to try it. It’s not fast. I plan to try different motor in spring. But when it has traction, it turns on a dime.

Good to read that others are finally showing some interest in this.

If they were more readily available I would've bought one. The thing the steers me away is that the YD is essentially a 2wd buggy.
