If you look at the pictures above you really see two different braces. The one near the chassis just as a flat brace. At the picture with the bulkheads there is a different T-style brace.

The ultra short turnbuckles would be for the swaybar links, so you can easily adjust the tweak out of the swaybar. great idea, as i hate hving to do it the conventional way.

looks like Marc has his shock holes exact the same. im assuming he just has stiffer springs on the shocks and heavier oil.

looks like his rubber car has no sways either.

Does anyone know yet what will be included with the complete MSX kit, ie: sway bars, pivot blocks etc.

I'm contemplating a new car for next year and atm it's between this and the Cyclone - The MSX looks a lot better to me, and I wouldn't mind paying a bit more if it means you're getting all the tuning options with the kit.

What I heard on the German forum Tamiya made a special 4mm chassis just for this race. Marc seems using Xray springs at least the colour looks like those.

Seems as Reinhard will use the new suspension on his foam car and the old proven one in his rubber car. Very interesting.

I like the aluminium outdrives for the ball diff, might get some because my current ball diff outdrives are starting to get worn around the dogbones.

Yep, noticed that too.

Any idea why?
Don't they claim that the new suspension creates more grip?
If so, why would they use it with foam tires??

i really wouldn't look too much into the pics of marc r's car right now for setups. it's was probably from the first day of practice.

by weeks end the traction is going to be insane and setups will be different.
