Looking at the pics I think they have gone to a more traditional wheel offset. That may explain why the front wheels are regular plastic, but the rears are rapid prototypes. Kind of interesting to see they have removed the option to run the side springs inward, and increased the length of the side links. A very cool evolution for sure!

Looked at the chassis up close and there's a lot of new and interesting features. I'll take a whole slew of photos tomorrow.

Dammit the photos are coming out on an angle. I'll post them via my computer.
Here's an interesting photo.

Thanks for the great pics Edward! Are the square eccentric bushing on the lower arm used to adjust width instead of height now?

That's a pretty interesting car. I might have to look into this further. I recently made a change to a Yokomo BD-7 and love it. It would be awesome to have the same experience with a Yokomo 1/12.

Nice pics Ed. Any chance of finding out about rear offset wheels? Or some better pics of the rear end?

Yes, it still uses the eccentric plastic bushing setup.
