What did you expect? The car is pretty much perfect as is. Yokomo have never really changed much car to car. The BD5 series was a prime example, they would only change small minor things.

The blue pics don't show a servo mount ? But the other one does

Guess that's the difference in price point?

Damn... I want the black version!! I hope you can buy an upgrade kit. New chassis, motor mount/pulley, shocks or shock bodies, and steering rack. Looks like the steering arms are longer. Wonder how it feels on the track.
