Well Champ did mention newly designed front and rear lower bulkheads.

It's hard to tell but it looks like the rear mounting points for the front lower bulkheads have been moved back? Seems this is now adjacent to the back of the suspension arms.

I hope they don't keep that rediculous flipped F/R mount. The split mount just seems so much more logical...

haha, had to have some fun with it, but nobody caught the change. Notice how the upper deck mounts on the front bulkheads. Revised front end flex

I'll take your word for it Randy, can see it myself in the pic whilst on the 'berry...

I was actually gonna guess that the front diff had been moved as well, looks like the suspension mounts are closer to the diff on the rear than the current car...hmmm. Why can't it be october yet?

Nah, the forward most screw should be for the bulkhead cap like on the current car, as there's no mention of new upper bulkheads...and the team have been running them on the new rear bulkheads too.
More I think about, more I'm convinced the front diff has moved back too... No mention of new belts for the front, despite the 20t pulleys, so makes sense to me...

Ahh, now I see....

Front lower bulkhead is closer to the front rear block... why couldn't I see that before!!

And I was right about the revised rear bulhead mounting... 2+2 on the screw front
