Clearly awesomatix and mugen got this generation of kits right because everyone is coping them. Even Xray is doing it.
axom yokomo conversion had those shock towers way longer than X-ray

Keep picking manufacturers cars apart .....
internet bench racing will kill the motivation for them to make kits.

Its nice to see them at least trying to come back with something designed around current trends.

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.
All 4 of those are on the Mugen too.

Dunno about this kit but I think Schumacher included both options on one of their recent kits.

Yup the Mi8 came with the new 4 link and the molded Mi7 uppers to help drivers transition.

It's not bashing, it's being realistic of what the performance will be of the car. Use the same design features and adjustment range as the other kits, there will a setup that makes the car work just as good as the other kits. For me, the real design is the flex characteristics, the packaging of components to reduce the polar moments and lower the cg, and most importantly for me now, is being able to changes quickly and accurately. Besides, all kits on the market will have very similar performance. If need be, you can find just about any spring rate and make your own roll bars, shock pistons, etc. It's endless what you can do to get a car to work but can't change where things are mounted to change the weight distribution and how the fundamentally reacts. In other words, don't expect this kit to be a game changer, just as I knew my MTC2r wasn't going to be a changer in performance but it was a game changer for my program because mugen fixed many of the issues of the car that would take up track time in my program.

The price (599e on Tonisport) is more reasonable than mugen, axon or AMX…

Cleaning those upper bulkhead holes will be fun.

Looking at the manual and setup sheet the caster adjustment is fixed both front/rear. The only way you will be able to adjust this is with an optional upper bulkhead.
