Pictures from today are posted again at;
http://www13.ocn.ne.jp/~mirage-j/gallery/06exp.htm

Just wish they would post some bigger ones.

Not found anything else interesting yet. Have read from a couple of places that Masami is the favourite having looked fastest in practice. Qualifying starts tomorrow.

Here are a couple of pictures of the track layout they're running. Dunno if the run anti- or clockwise.

Looks like they run the track anti-clockwise.

New narrow chassis on the Kyosho is the only new thing i noticed except the 4 cell chassis on one of the Cyclones.

Other than that the cars look very much standard and similar to when running 6 cells. Upper deck cut a bit on the 415 and BD for more flex.

Masami/Orion...seems that was just for the worlds?

I'm quite surprised that none of the cars have made a big change to the original motor position, most seem to be the 6-cell chassis with 4-cells either fore, mid or aft.

They would have know about the 4-cell rule for a while, I would have thought that moving the motor could have made quite a big difference to the weight distribution and performance.
