Pre-order pricing is much lower than the BD12, less than most other kits.

They should have removed the wheels for the official presentation picturesÖ

Upper Arms look similar to the Mugens.
I dont know where the 'matix part comes from.
Some people just think that everyone copies them.

Theres always gonna be something in a car that another designer likes and tries to duplicate.
The more important thing is design/geometry and then parts availability.

I wanna see them race with that wire though lol.

On the first pictures in page 1 of this thread, the car was equipped with AMX upper arms.
Now itís Mugen style arms.

the only concern that pauses me playing ep touring again is, most brands have a new model every year with just 2 mm in or our change, like x brand, maybe other brands too, i am not familiar and a fan of them

Only see a few AMX inspired parts.

1. Carbon fiber plate lower arms.
2. Pivot ball attached arms.
3. Lower pivot ball supported hubs.
4. Split top decks with inbd flex screws.

Surprised yokomo decided to keep the center pulley as is. Most are gravitating toward another AMX design with the belts on the same side of the spur.

Mugen upper arms, awewsomatix motor mount and flex concept, x4 shower towers, and straight copy of the awesomatix arm clip system. Packaging of these kits is a major design aspect and it makes sense all the manufactures on converging on designs that are superior. Clearly awesomatix and mugen got this generation of kits right because everyone is coping them. Even Xray is doing it.
