It's the Prince! LOL, nice avatar!

Does the VMII use carbon fiber chassis plates or FRP? Every pic I see it has CF, but every text I read it states FRP. So which one is it?

Is it really full carbon or FRP sandwiched between 2 layers of Carbon to make it look good?

It is indeed a Matrix....Carbon outer layers which are quite thick and FRP inner plating.Either way,the quality is still excellent.

Does anyone know the price and availability (as in where to get this car) for the VM2?

I have become super hooked on mini cars now. I don't like the HPI Cup Racer too much, and definitely not going with Tamiya because of parts availability in my area. I adore my ABC Hobby car and would like to add this VM2 to my new collection.

Any info appreciated!

When I decide to get a 4wd mini the VMII is definitely the car to get. I gave up on my Cup Racer but it's nice seeing the guys are finally getting the chassis sorted out.
You plan on giving the Xray diffs a try? I always thought the car looked more like a baby TRF416.

So I guess no release info or anything about the car? HKS is the only hobby shop that carries these cars? No one else?
