Cartman - let's examine the pictures and links you provided. The first link you provide is:
to which the header is "Fusion Update" and the first words of the body are "The new Schumacher Nito Fusion is the fastest most exciting R/C Touring car ever created. The enormous .21 (3.5cc) Pro Spec engine, with its CNC tuned pipe system, is capable of propelling the lightweight 4WD chassis to an incredible 80mph." That isn't the prototype .12 car.
Please note the reversed servos - steering is BEHIND the throttle servo - this is noted in the Extreme article specifically and is a specific difference from the very cool spy shots you provided (wish you could get more. . .
Second picture -
Again, this looks to be the .21 Fusion - how can I tell? I can't, not completely, but again, LOOK AT THE SERVOS. . .the throttle servo is at the FRONT of the car. . .on your spy shots, it's behind the steering servo. . .this leaves the conclusion that this is the Fusion, not the .12 proto.
I'm not trying to pick a fight here. I was just disappointed to see that nothing new was known or seen.
I personally think that this car (the .21) is a bit of a dumb car. TONS of straightline speed but there's no way the suspension is going to be able to handle all that power going into a turn. . .
