Default Yokomo B-MAX2 buggy thread

I saw this on RedRC.net. Looks like the B4 from the chassis back and has the front end of a TQ or K car...but with big bore shocks. Curious to see how this develops.

http://www.redrc.net/

"Seen at this yearís Shizuoka Hobby Show in Japan that is taking place this week, is the new prototype Yokomo 2wd buggy. Currently just made from prototyping material there was little details available so we contacted Yokomo who told us that the carís design is not yet finalized and that it will not be ready for this yearís Worlds. Their team drivers will once again run the B4.1 in 2wd."

Haha when I saw that photo on redrc this morning I thought to myself....oh no. A 2wd buggy version of the blitz ese (because of the white parts).

Doesn't look like anything new. The chassis has a different shape but that's about it.
