See I thought so also, but the angle is different in the pictures and I wasn't sure if it was just that. Hmm.

You know, after looking at them a little more I can totally see the difference. Thank you folks for the input.

It's kinda like "What's different in this picture?" haha. Sylvain, I totally see that area now.

Duh , that doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure that out and like I mentioned above I can give a ratts ass where that car is coming from. If that car is working for you then whoopdie doo. You can continue to drive that over priced car imo and I'll stick with a more reasonable priced car
Hey Kyosho's are not over priced. If they were they wouldn't sell. You seem to be having a hard time coming to terms with this. Grab a tissue mate, everytthing will be alright.

Yes, but you keep coming back...THE RED ARMY will win more IFMAR's.
On another note the new to be released AE 1/8 buggy should be just fine, but a KYOSHO is a KYOSHO. LOL

To be totall honest I really like it It looks bullet proof and will surley be a good performer.
I cant wait to see it in action and maybe even test drive one.
But More than likley I'll be staying with my Losi once I got it set right It just suits me and my driving style to a T Theres Nothing I dont like about it.

Is there a list of parts that are being carried over from the old car anywhere? Diffs, CVD's, those kinds of things?...
