looks like different shape chassis plate and different motor mount are the main changes?

Pics look like CAD data. Belts could still be black in final form.

Compare it with the 418 and also look at the other chassis shot in the CAD I posted some time ago and also the prototype pictures around...

Yep, I was looking the pics its the same as the one on your site but higher res, it seems that the top pic for the 419 is just using the 418 cad on both of these pictures (As mentioned I cant see any differences from the 418, even the top decks look the same)

Here is the Tamiya Cad image for TRF419 for the September show, it also looks the same

Doesn't look like it will use the large diameter short try shocks. I was hopping it will so mounting ifs body will be a none issue... Tamiya really should make short shock towers so we can use their beautiful ifs bodies on these for gt10 or tcs.

So with the Xray T4 '15 details coming out on Friday, do you think real images and specs of the 419 will appear before the Worlds, or will Tamiya wait until afterwards?
While I am sure all the major players have made tweaks to their cars for Worlds, I have not seen anything announcing new cars except Tamiya and Xray.

The car will be shown at the All Japan Hobby Show which is at the end of the month. That's before the world's I think.

The birds-eye-view of the chassis photographed is odd... If you look at the contours of overhead shot versus the front angled shot. You can see the front shot shows more of a BD7 style shape Whereas the overhead shot looks like an 415 chassis cutout. lol.
