Thanks.
well I didn't have any problems with bottom part, never had to replace it. Yeah I had some torn foam bumpers, at the moment I'm running them taped with battery strap tape. I haven't got any damaged foam anymore as it holds it together well now.

That was some prototype stuff. No one knows the answer to that yet, or if it was any better.

I talk with they in Euros about this news upper brackets, and they say me is dificult go to production, because have to modified the wishbones with new hole to put the swaybar.
And the only benefits, is for best tweak the swaybars.
I know, the price for molds are very high, make new mold for litle or nothing benefit , is not a good investiment, but i not 100% sure that there is not production.

Greetings, Luis C.

Well all companies are working on new cars all the time. I guess they are working on new car as well. Also check how often are new cars released and when last car was released. So it's just my guess they are working on that.

The Mi2 arms would work. A bit more fragile but they had the sway bar mounted in a similar way on the arm. I remember when the Mi3 came out some people complaining about the sway bars.

There is a new car!I saw it in the flesh last week end(photos were not allowed),looks good too on and off the track "very smooth". as far as im awear and this info is "second hand" theres a new chassis,shock towers,camber plates,lighter stonger bulk heads,heavy duty drive shafts with bigger blades,two point steering, new diff and spool plus some hidden flex changes for the front end "to stop it eating rubber??" apparently the other susspention parts are "same as"

The only reason I found out is that my racing buddy has a drive with the Schuy team and needed a new mi4 lp for the coming carpet season...he was told to hang fire and wait for the new model.

I must admit Grainger did look good giving young Harpers Tamiya a hard time for a change!!...Hmmm It might even tempt me away from my beloved Photon lol

Les, what you really saw was a car with some new "test" bits. Some of them might come out, some might not.

Ok understood Matt,as I said the info was second hand.....But what Grainger had at west London did make me sit up and take notice,and Im not that easily impressed ....stiil it makes for a good forum chat and its nice to give a plug (even though I drive Photon)to what I think is one of the best "clubmans and stock class" chassis out there!

Ginge,You may be right now the gear diffs help it rotate better in high grip!
