3rd)The carbon has been updated to some super cool / strong $h!t the Chassis now has a Rainbow effect to it kind of like color change paint way cool
4th) They have done a slite mod to the stabilizer mount to make it more smooth and for better access..

thats all I know for now...but the chassis seems to be a bit stronger..and I take some pic`s after I go on Sunday

Dave ....what thickness is the chassis going to be i didnt see any info on this when reading about it And Im taking it will be the same battery layout as the standard R2 is this correct?

And another question I have noticed few use the PAL hubs and not the drop down mounts using the upper deck some how and looks like there mounting underneath some way i do know they have the upper chassis flipped over here is a pic of what im talking about kinda small (sorry)

Hmm, interesting. Looks like they're using a ball link on the underside of the top deck but the bulkheads must be different to accomodate them. You can't use any of the holes further in as the diff gear is in the way on one side...

I might be daft but I'm not stupid

Nice picture KO, wish I'd got Purple instead of red!

Those Speedway/Pal decals look nice too...wish I could have gotten the red instead of the blue but it isn't a big deal...it might be green if I can find a local to do it.

I know it's early, but do you know about what is going to cost in us dollars? Over 400?

I'd guess it will stay reasonably priced, maybe $350 or so. I dont think they would sell many of them if it was 400+

I know wgat they did.. I saw one car at Yatabe Arena that had that done.... they mill th chassis out and either tap the alloy and remove the carbon section on the upper deck or they use it...(the owner of FLAP is now doing this also) just seems to be a cheaper way to mount the camber links..? ...

just my take on it

Thumbs up a few more things

The New carbon chassis now has a directional carbon weave to it looks kind of like lines (which is very strong...its a pressed carbon with rear carbon fiber ...not a Hybrid like most )

and there is a slite modification to the A-Arms for the Stabilizer mounts...also a bit more beefy around the ball mounts

-Dave
