arms look different on rear, motor is definitely moved in. front shock tower seems changed also. once some better images come out im sure it will be easier to pick the differeces

heat sink bars look lower and further back

Not much to work with, huh? The "leaked"pictures from the original M05 were a little more tantalizing. The only real change I can make out from this is there appears to be a hole in the chassis, next to the radio tray.

The front shock mount looks to be real close to the regular M05. But the rear tower looks to of had some changes. Rear arms look a little different. Just hard to tell for sure.

i couldn't tell that the motor has moved in at all! But yeah front shock mount seems different (m not sure if it's considered a tower), i do fancy that hole next to the esc/radio plate. Allows very neat electronics installation

Ive read about WD40, various companies tire compounds, even simple green
Any others?

The M-05 Ver.II PRO builds upon the original M-05 chassis. It features a number of upgrades, to improve balance and lower the chassis' center of gravity. It comes with a variety of option parts to make it a competitive new machine.

Included Option Parts:

Aluminum Steering Post
Aluminum Horn For Hi-Torque Servo Saver
Full Ball Bearings
DF-03 Heat Sink Bar Set
Aluminum Turnbuckle Steering Rod
CVA Oil Shocks
Semi-Gloss Black Plated Wheels
Aluminum Servo Mount (Blue)

Notable New Tweaks:
The chassis is compatible with square-shaped battery packs.
Tamiya designers have made numerous adjustments to make this new car as lightweight as possible, without sacrificing durability.
A new aluminum motor mount was designed specifically for this chassis.
Chassis, D parts (arm stays and damper stays, etc.) and wheels have a Semi Gloss Black metal-plated finish.

Motor Position:
The motor is fitted to a newly-designed mount and has been moved 4.5mm closer to the center of the chassis when compared to the original
M-05. This has the effect of improving weight distribution as well as sharpening steering response.

Suspension Arms
Newly-designed one-piece suspension arms are made from reinforced plastic. They offer greater durability and contribute to the model's sharper steering. The arms are equipped with droop screws to allow quicker droop adjustment just like Tamiya’s touring cars.

Low Profile Servo compatibility:
The main frame has been redesigned to support the chassis' new functionality. Compatible with low-profile servos, the servo attachment position has been shifted 8mm downwards to secure a lower center of gravity.

This should pretty much answer everyone's questions =)
I haven't posted images or information on our website yet. Figured you guys on here would like to know first

Is the front half of the car going to be available and compatible with the standard mo5 as an upgrade? would be nice to get the gearbox section to move the motor to the center.
