It would be safer to say that it can go up 30 to 40 mi./hr.

Hi all Im back :-). What ive been hearing is that the NEw yokomo will be shaft driven, Since Shaft is now the way of the future Just like cars all going to have Turbo.I heard this Straight from Yokomo Guy. Remember People All companys Bring out new PRoducts In late november and december *Hint Hint*

From the RC zone.net: http://www.rczone.net/modules.php?na...rticle&sid=434

Yokomo, is one of the top manufacturers in virtually all EP categories and always build their cars with a racing concept in mind. They only started to manufacture a 1:10 GP touring in 2001. While the super smooth GT-4W, without any doubts, was one of the best designed nitro tourer, it had not been as successful as the MTXs and the V-one-Rs, mainly due to the lack of promotion / support by their factory team drivers. It seemed as if Yokomo realized this, and they sent most of their famous racers to this meeting including: Masami Hirosaka, Shinnosuke Adachi, Takashi Kato, Toshiaki Kato etc. It appeared that Yokomo have been developing a brand new car and the Yokomo Team used prototype cars in this meeting.
Yokomo_King, perhaps could you back up your source of information with something solid? ALthough the above report is unofficial, the report above assumes Yokomo is doing a prototype.

Perhaps its easy to assume they might be experimenting with a shaft drive version, but that doesn't mean they would go that way. Its easy to assume because their new SD electric car is succsessful, but who knows, the belt drive version of the GT4 is also very successful.

From the photo of Masami on the podium, I can tell its the GT4 through the window, just by seeing the GT4's radio plate.

yeah its hard to assume what the company's are gonna
come out with but i'm sure this next tourer should be
alot better especially if masami is involved in developing
the next car.

Mhhhh ...

The only bad thing for us Southamericans its that usually we spend a lot of money due to extra charges, overpricing and S&H .... so im still thinking which desition its better for me ... i have my GT4-S fully loaded with racing mods (some of you knows about the front belt tensioner, right side battery holder with quick changing system, rear carbon fiber body holder, etc , things that have been developed and tested by me and the Yokomo distributor here in Brazil) so i dont know if order a GT4-W2L or just order a full bag of parts for normal maintenance and wait for the new car, even if i have to wait past the pre-worlds next year (im trying my best to attend the event).

Thanks a lot in advance for any opinnion.

Wasn't it Masami's father who designed the first GT4?

Does Japan still run nitro TC in 190mm form? Thats why the GT4 marketed in the states was the GT4W (Wide). I wonder if Japan ever went to 200mm for their rules. The wide bones and pivots made it wide, but it wasn't designed to be that way. The type-B hub carriers and 190 setup is what I run now (30mm tires on the rear).

hey tom i'm not sure if his dad designed the car but i know
he hasn't driven it much until late this year since gp is getting
popular including japan. the gt4 has always been 200 mm
the reason for the 190 dogbones was for the swith from 26mm
0 off set wheels to 2 degree 32mm wheels wich is hard to
find now but the have the new 2degree offset 30mm bbs wheels

tbo1 i'm not sure what the actual top speed for the rtr is but
its safe to say that the yok rtr2 will have the highest top speed
in its class. It comes equiped with a 2speed, a .18 rear exhaust and the drive train is one of the smoothest.

When the GT4 just came out... there was a GT4 nonW version...... which was a 190mm version. It's pillow ball shanks were about half as long as the typical pillow balls. It also had the middle belt running down the right side with a pulley hooked up to its one speed spur gear.

I don't think it was every imported stateside?
