If that the case , the only good thing about that is :
We only need one type of spare bearings, for the wheels in our bags.

Narrower chassis, rear bumper, redesigned top-side plates ... steering linkage still looks bit weird ... but improving

Hmm, looks like they've been in the Yokomo parts bin Atleast the rear handle/bumper will come in handy for carrying the car.

Still no easy access diffs, infact there seems to be even more screws No quick changes of one ways to diffs to spools then

Chassis looks a little stiffer although there's now no brace next to the cells, oposite from the servo mount/brace. They've narrowed it down a bit too

Hey Dave, how heavy is the car? I know that the diff cases are thin, but it has that "heavy look."

OK more update on the bearings.... it look as if ALEX Racing will use a new style flanged bearing(like on pan cars) for the hubs now front and rear.. and the size looks to be 1050 too

I meant the brace that goes from the outer edge of the chassis to the side braces. The one on the right of the chassis doubles as the servo mount but the one on the left of the chassis isn't there anymore. Maybe it was a shorting risk since it was next to the cells.

This car has braces everywhere just no belts

Herm, if they were into the Yoke parts bin its a pity they didnt pick up the BD steering parts, I still believe they will fit. Not long till they hit the streets

Possibility they are looking at the gearbox housings to make them more...."user friendly"...watch this space

Dave, any reason for using the ride height adjusters on threaded shocks???? bit of belt and braces maybe

Looks to be about 3~4 weeks top until the stinger comes out in Japan... but I would b willing to be that you "will" see one more gear box change

also none of you have noticed that ALEX also has changed the sus arm alloy mounts a little.. so now that they are a ball socket type
