Well, I remember when the rumour about the 710. It started like a year before we finally saw the kit.

I think Yokomo do not intend to set back and let the GT4 rot. A new car is abound to come, its just a matter of when. In the meantime, they'll lose customers but with them doing well in the EP world I guess they don't mind too much?!

I heard Masami has driven a prototype and it looks promising. The motor is angled, the servos are lay down, that's all I've heard.

I agree. My Yok has been shelved, but in favor of a Kyosho. Unless its amazing, I won't go back.

Yeah, mee too. Since coming up with Yoke parts is just as hard as keeping them from breaking, I shelved them too, both the racer and the practice car ........I am looking at the R40 to buy when I get back to the states....

there IS a new car on the way. I don't have any info on it but I spoke with yokomo usa last week and while the project did get shelved for a bit so they could concentrate on other projects, the new gas car is in the works.
