Yokomo Hotdog 4

it came at '95 with Works 91/93 arms on early YR-4 chassis. it was out of my concern 'cause I already had all of Yoke buggies except for 834B. and it looked funny at first glance and seemed to be packed from the leftover parts of YR-4, Works, and YZ10. but this kit has a few good parts for building or restoring Yoke buggies.

like:
the wing is the same one on 870C and Works
rear axles are perfect replacements for 834B
the body is almost identical to Protech 4 which was stock '88 YZ10
Works arms
YZ10 wheels and Pavidis tires
it came from Yokomo

dislike
only 6 diff balls for each diff (50%)
sedan shocks and towers (.56 stroke)
have to replace the center shaft if you want to install TCS or torque limiter
funny bumper
molded F/R bulkhead (it could be good from a different point of view)
early weak hinge pins which are too long
funny box art

anyway, I found a NIB lat week, again






and few more pictures from the kit I split for my 870C build a couple of years ago
