Question
Taiyo Edge Runner availability

I'm trying to track down the Taiyo Edge Runner series of RC vehicles. These were excellent products around 2002-2004 but they seem to be elusive. The best I've been able to fund out is that :
1. There seem to have been two models of the Edge Runner, both good, but now hard to find even on places like Ebay 2nd hand, much less new.
2. The Taiyo company still exists but their site is entirely in Japanese and they don't look interested in being accessible from the U.S.
3. There is no sign of a U.S. distributor - Business Week lists Taiyo Edge in FL but those details seem to be defunct.

These products were outstanding and it's hard to believe they are no longer in business. Does anyone know more history, if there is a U.S. distributor and where I could buy 3-4 of the Edge Runners?

Many thanks!

They were fast, could cover any terrain, were small to carry and could work when flipped. Also very well made, not the usual cheap shortcuts. I'd like to know who is making them if anyone, and how I can get a whole fleet of them (for own use, not to resell).

Anyone... thanks!
