Anyone have any more info? I would've thought we'd have seen pictures at least by now if the ship date is still around June!

http://http://ens.redrc.net/wp-conte...Green747-4.jpg The article says new plastic ball joints but does anyone notice the front steering block has 2 shinny M3 nuts which resembles the steering blocks of the 977 Viper?

I saw this; I just thought he drilled two extra holes in the ackermann plate. What I see is the new steering knuckles and front air dams. Also his top deck is cut.

Pass you soon...

Got a good feeling about this car! I'm starting to feel that very little will carry over from the 747. My guess is it'll be similar to the change from 966 to 977.

Hi to all! The only new parts in greiner car where the new steering knuckles similar to the 977 ones with the possibility to use also carbon fibre discs.
The rest was like a normal 747.
Mazzeo wasn't there
I think the Italian Championship set for this weekend was the reason for his absence. There where only 40 italians on 150 drivers racing the ENS. Personally I had to give up for problems with my job. I hope to back racing soon...maybe with a 748 ��
