Oh bo**ocks, just ordered a grainger edition
Reckon it could be to suit the new japanese rules of 4 cells? If it's not a completely new car, things like the shock towers should be available seperately (I hope!)

Ali any chance of some of the Grainger tips and setups? Also the SDW arms could be going out of production, going to get clarification though before making any more of it.

I flipped the steering post ( servo saver mount ) so the steering bellcrank sit lower to main chassis. The belt doesn't touch the steering bellcrank anymore.

I also flipped the steering turnbuckle downside for less up & down movement.

The Masami Edition has all the stuff and changes Masami used at the Japan Nationals. Different shock towers, Bomber white belts and a few other goodies. I don't have all the spec's yet. I would assume that sooner or later the other parts would be available seperately.

So those are not major improvement over the actual BD I thought it had revised bulkheads or stuff like that.
Thanks for the info.
