Hey Usagi,

Since you have been the r/c show in Japan this weekend, do you think Yokomo sonic racer is worth to wait? Or, should I get DTM X4 instead? I would like to hear your opinion. It sounds like Sonic racer has a great potential on hop-ups and body choice in the near future. How about the compatiblity of other 1/24th scale static model kit? Does Sonic racer fit them without hole drilling? Thanks in advance.

I talked to the yokomo people here at the show and they where very proud of their creation! I first show its a shizouka back in May 2002. God i almost died! I love it more then my mini-z! and almost as much as my tripmate mid 24! I am going straight for the shop when its release. its a christmas present for me:) Can`t wait! HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!

How much it's gonna be when it releases in Japan? Is it gonna be AWD or 2WD? I have seen your posts with Sonic Production model photos. I don't see any body mount whatsoever. How does it mount to the body? How's its electronics? Can I customize it with my own micro electronics? How's about hop-ups support as well as bodies availablilities? I am very interested to add one more on my collection too. :D

Here look at these pictures in theback ground of one. You can the bodies that will be released. Cost will 17,500 yen. for RTR
And Now mini-z parts can`t be used as options (atleast thats whatsthe Yokomo Rep told me).
