If they ever should release it to the public, it should be called something else imo.
They have been calling it the D812 for a few months. Don't know if that will be "market" name or not.

Sure they have. Marketing deosn't allow them to release the name of the car early, so that no competitor steals thier catchy names.

The HB guys I talked to at the warm up said the new car would be named.......

"Clyde".

I can confirm that the MBX7 will be out. A friend of mine that runs for Mugen just got his hands on one the other day and will be finishing the build here in the next day or 2. The new car looks awesome!!!

I'd like to see a factory AE car with the upgraded vertical hubs, and some new rear hubs similar to the new Avid ones. We can all hope though.

I'm very interested too see what Hot Bodies brings to the table. They seem to be doing something right considering how fast Ty Tessman has been lately.
