Cant wait to see this new car. I hope its foam friendly, most of the Japanese cars arent really designed for foam tire setups, Yokomo SD and BD you have to shave the steering arm to get them to fit, Tamiya 415 you have to build a front diff using parts from yokomo.

isn't that the same shaft driven car that they've had pictures out for awhile now?

Isn't that the old prototype that they've already dismissed?

#2 - Trust me, if I'm behind the computer designing the car - it definatly won't be a copy cat car. I'm known for making some crazy stuff so if my ideas work it should be a lot of fun.
I do see the differences you're talking about but these two quotes from Josh make me believe they have something different on the drawing board.

I know there is only 1 way to design a shaft car, but am i the only one that thinks this looks like a silver pro4? The chassis looks a little sleeker, but all the parts look very familiar, gear cases, camber mounts etc

I was expecting something more innovative from the big K, with the hired guns of Cyrul etc.

I'm sure K will come out with two cars to suit different tracks & driver preferences
