Yeah, i saw also this photo.
But when i translate that japanese text, didn't say nothing, it's suspicious due the window his covered with spray.
The only chassis photo without body i saw it's just the same.
Maybe only Super expert race will show on, of course Hara-san will own it.
Could you tell me if the new chassis release it's officially confirmed yet?

I was wondering when they'd replace the Cyclone. It's been around for a while...at least in the TC market it has.

Maybe I'm right, maybe I'm wrong. Fact is that the only real evolution on the current car are the bigger pully's so it would be time to release a improved car. I'm thinkin': Bigger diff rings, improved rear bulkhead's,... With the Tamiya 416 coming out and all the improvement's it has gone trough I don't see why someone would buy a current Cyclone? But that is just me...

Maybe it's just teasing or to spread a gossip but the owner of that white body still took his time to mask the headlamps and grills.

Why don't unmask it then take picture?
Or maybe that car it's not him?

Well seems like a lot of testing for durability and flex.

Thats normal for mod sedan. Everyone is running softer and softer springs and finding the cars are getting faster even though they are rolling a lot.
