Looks like they are copying and pasting xray's optimized press releases

Is that one extra inner or outer hole? Or is it one in between the current two and two on the outside?

It looks like it has a new hole on the inner side which maybe more suited to the new car,you know the one that looks like a red Tamiya with 417 type steering set-up

Saw some prototype parts on EJ's car this past weekend. Looks pretty good addition once it's on production.

Bling parts?, I'd like to see TOP make a real gear diff still, they went from being ahead of the grade with the micro, to well behind now just about everyone has a full sized out or soon to be out...

It looks like a new longer hole, to match the geometry on the Tamiya and Xray. HB has also bought out a similar longer knuckle.

The HB suspension from which the TOP suspension is copied has quite a short knuckle

We are always testing different parts. Some make it into production and some don't.

I think it's more important that the holes are going in the right direction. Toward the back of the car, not the center.

I think it's more important that EJ and TOP are always working on this car keeping it the highest level of competition possible.

EJ's car had so many "prototype" parts it almost looked like a completely new car. I wish some of you could have seen it. EJ put a towel on his car, looked at me, and said,"no photos."
