Evolution not innovation. No purple, a few more holes on the top plate, new battery holder, carbon fiber front hubs (at least the arms), pro 4 like front suspension arms. I'll have to go get my reading glasses
or a bigger screen for more, but this looks like a black anodized TCXX.

could be by design, or could be drivers choice... I can't remember the driver or car, but a while ago one did swap a bunch of button heads out and then when I saw the actual kit - I was scratching my head

Probably the same reason JJ told me to run set screws in the bottom holes of my towers.

Said it allowed the car to flex better.

Those bottom screws are probably not tightened

Car looks good to me. Its all the details these days with 1/10 onroad but HPI always have good ideas to bring to the table. My only complaint just by looking with is the servo mount. I love the old one and I though it was the best implementation I've seen.

I think you took that wrong. It was meant to be funny. I was trying to say I'll never be at a level of racing that that kind of thing will affect me.

I wonder how long it will take until someone changes out all the orange shims to purple ones? The only thing that I see maybe difficult to change is the orange sway bay stays.
