I was thinking of doing the same thing.

I'm just going to get the short arm, top deck since the bulkhead is the same and new battery mount.

guys the battery mount will not fit on a 14 chassis, unless you are willing to drill your own holes..

Arm part numbers are not out yet.

the part number for the battery bracket is B7-11815

all the part numbers are on yokomo's website.

I am not sure what you guys are whining about, yes the car only has incremental improvements, but I think they will be worth it.

For the record I am still keeping my 14 as my spare/VTA car because its a great car, but really looking forward to seeing what the 15 can do.

Beth.

Read this article.... Front motor mount iis better suited for hi bite tracks. In one of the interviews one tamiya racer said the grip was low and slippery. If I'm not mistaken shorter front arm also helps with more front grip.
