What's changed compared with the version 1, besides the window masking tape that is included now?

Is it just me or does the trunk look longer? Might be to allow more "clean" air to go over the wing producing more downforce. Ther emight be some more aggressive lines we can;t se in the pic too...

Shhh... if you wait long enough, the greenhouse will shrink some more, and it will turn into a Honda NSX....

It looks like the longer trunks are the new trend these days.
Ride and Rayspeed have done it with the Accord,
Yoke and Protoform with the new stratus (e-type and 3.0),
and know Tamiya has also done it!

I was not impressed with the older version, it had no downforce it seemed front or rear. Went back to the Mazda 6

It'll be to do with getting the best airflow off the greenhouse to the wing.... it may be effective, but boy is it ugly!
