It's a CAD rendering. Lots of companies will show case new products by showing these renderings.

That is the same Cad drawing as the rc pro products and ocm thread that was retracted earlier in 2010.

Sure looks like a Mugen to me. Often wondered how companies can get by with copying another.

It reminds me alot of floor plans for manufactured homes, it seems like all mfgs have the same floor plan available. Honestly I doubt that these companies do much copyrighting just trademarks.

I will say this, even though S-Works took 90% of the MBX6 platform. They did do minor changes that may help the buggy out.

Laydown steering servo, helps get the COG just a little bit lower.

They added a little brace on the front arms that may give that little extra bit of durability for the people that may of had a problem with it. Might also get rid of the extra flex the front arms have. But this can maybe also hurt it getting rid of the flex. Just like how Losi's seem to like a little bit slop in the arms. That remains to be scene.

They looked to have lightened the hardware where possible.

For a negative it looks to have plastic shock caps, which suck.

And this isn't a negative, but the quality of the plastic and other materials may not be on the same level as the Mugen buggy.

Also in my opinion the Mugen does look nicer. I prefer the gun metal look anodizing, and the way the carbon fiber looks on the Mugen better compared to the gold anodizing and somewhat white carbon fiber. But the red on the S-Works look pretty bad ass.
