More then likely Josh was running the car he designed, the same car he used at Cleveland...

From what I could see, Josh was running something with saddle packs. Possibly something derived from his car last year? Who knows.

Thad,
Thanks for that setup you gave me, it was dialed. I gained almost .5 second per lap and the car was so easy to drive, especially in the S section.

Josh was running his design prototype. It has been refined since Cleveland.
If Kyosho doesn't build this car then they will NEVER be a force in TC.

Josh's prototype looks like a RC Lab 7.0 chassis. The mid motor and saddle pack configuration is not something new. OVA and Alex Racing had some cars like that before Losi made thier XX-4 and OFNA made their OB-4 (EP). The motor in the center make the car handling very neutral and the saddle pack make the chassis roll better side to side in the back.

The pictures show early Josh's prototype car which with a weird steering crank!

The car in the pics was last years test car. That car was made strictly to test some "out there" concepts that I always wanted to try. The car that I ran at this year's Reedy Race was a much more refined evolution of that car.
