or, maybe that would not be the case at all

Since Masami never said that if he wins the race, the car WILL be out in 2 months. He said "maybe" .....correct?

But sadly, he did not.

So the release time is iffy.

i don't think yokomo will base thier release date on where the
car finishes because you cannot control every thing in the race.
i think they will base it more on the cars actual performance,
durability, and if they are happy with the overall layout of the
car for servicing.

i was looking at the lap times and masami had the fastest
lap average which says alot about his driving but at that
level the car has to be just as good so i guess it says alot
about the car also.

I think the Masami's comments about his place on the race was a thing of marketing ... obviously its not the same for the eyes of the average rc consumer (imagine on a first time nitro driver looking to start with a top level car) buy a car with the first place on the preworlds than on a 5th place ...

Anyway, every day i asked Masami about the car performance, and the same comment came out of his mouth "its getting better and better" ...

i think yokomo is giving up.....

masami will attend only the eletric worlds and if yokomo was really interested on the 1/10 200mm then masami would attend both races......

So the Yokomo's gonna just sit and watch Mugen and Serpent and Kyosho take the helm once they held?
I remember when everyone had GT-4 and GT-4 was THE car to run. Is Yokomo really just gonna watch helplessly?
I really wanna see them come back.......

Hi Pato

What a dissapointment. I smelled something fishy about Yokomo's silence, that is why I got myself a Mugen MTX3 Prospec in the mean time, because my old Yoke couldn't keep up with the new crop of cars outhere.
I think you should post the pictures of the prototype used by Masami at the Preworlds to see if some official from Yokomo comments something about what's going on. If there is not going to be a new car then now damage will be done, but at least you'll get a reaction. Come on Pato.... post.. post... post!!!!!

That car was just prototype. Ever see Masami's stealth buggy from the world's in Austrailia? The one associated came out with eventually was nothing like it. Even if we see pics of the prototype yok, doesn't mean what we end up getting will be the same deal. Personally, I don't think Yokomo is putting priority to the nitro arena. If they did want to be more prevailant on the nitro onroad market they'd also have an 8th scale onroad car too.
