I would definately think the suspension would "feel" softer with that setup...I guess we'll see how it performs.

That's a lot of time and money on the end of the car that receives the most hits. That looks like an ear for the mounting hole. There would be no milling that out if it cracked or broke off...

I hope Pook is right and it's just a K member. It would still mean disassembling the whole front end.

I ran the F201 for 2 solid years and broke enough lower A arms (until the hardened set came out) and never a problem tearing out the shock mount point. If worried about where it bolts into the chassis, run a longer threaded shaft into the chassis and connect the ball nut to the top. That will make it solid. The top mount section looks like a new piece that just bolts on to the gear box. Only time, and crashes, will tell how durable it is.

That body just looks so nice I think im going to have to buy one! That and to check out the new suspension first hand. Looks like the parts for the MS IFS are coming from Square, assuming from the tiny Square sticker on the front fender. None the less, i guess it will be out in Japan soon and we will get to see some reviews and pics.

No, the parts on that chassis are all from Tamiya. Square is MS's sponsor, that's why the sticker is on the body.
