On kentech blog it is written that the 418 suspension arm are the same lenght of short reversible, I don't think so.
Somebody knows more about this?

I saw the 418 for sale at a hobby shop when I was in Tokyo last week on our way back from the Tamiya World Championships. Rather pricey @ $750 though.

I can wait until they hit the US to purchase one. The V5 is a really good chassis and will keep me competitive until then

I'm sorry to tell you this, but when the 418 hits the US, your car will automatically be 3 tenths slower... proven fact!

Hey Guys,

I ran my 418 box stock this past weekend. with minimal testing the car is right on par if not slightly better then my Serpent that we have had lots of track time with!

We use sorex 28 on low to mid grip carpet.

My kit(s) came with extra suspension replacements

The car was dialed and what was even more impressive was that you built it the night before!

Where exactly did you read that? In some translated Tamiya info it says "suspension arms of same dimensions". But I would not read into that that the length is exactly the same. I don't have the car yet so I cannot check lengths.
