The closed layshaft bulkheads are now standard, as I believe they were on the later T4 kits.

Proved what they've changed helps me to go faster, I'm happy

Looks like we can still use the older wishbones etc as well which is very useful for those of us who still have spares.

Yes the old arms have the same dimensions. The new arms just have a different shape in certain areas to allow for the screw holes for the optional graphite plates. But length and everything else is still the exact same as T4 arms.

Just wait till you all drive one!

That looks awesome. Taking some cues from HB offroad with the arms is looks like. I also like the inserts for the inner arm mounts, it adds tunability out of the box. I know orange is the signature x-ray color, but I would really like companies to stop with all the bright anodazation. Leave it natural, black, or grey/gunmetal. Its much easier to create a true stealth look without blue/orange/green or purple. Other than that, if a new tc is in my future this will be getting a serious look.

Here's the list of parts for the new car;

Should think (without having seen or built one) that it's mainly going to be the suspension mounts and chassis.
Seems you could get away with your current wishbones etc.

I'm digging the new captured pins for the blocks.

YOKEMAD: what are you referring to that is 2mm longer?

2mm longer front to rear....not in hinge pin to hinge pin length. Look at the picture. You can see the part where the inner hinge is is longer. The suspension mounts were moved farther apart and instead of having to use 4mm of shims on the hinge pin they made the arm thicker in this area.
