lol. Tamiya don't allow links to their pages. That has to be one of the dumbest things they could possibly do.

I am interested to see it in the flesh, or at least a photo. It looks like it carries over quite a bit from the V2

Looks interesting, a modified F104 Pro V2, but wider rear, and a stronger front end!

Interesting, if the rear end links really are wider. With the Exotek car having very wide links and the V2 being narrower link to accommodate the body there may be some differences there. A friend and I were talking at the last race we attended that maybe with the rubber tires there was an advantage to having a wider link setup. The advantage is not so great over the side spring, so you can get away with a little softer spring, especially on high traction. The original V2 was shown with foams so maybe this is a response to rubber tire racing. I know on my TOP car, which has even narrower links than the V2, I have run some of the hardest side springs available.

Not sure though, the pictures are small

EDIT: IS that a fixed upper arm? Could it be they are going to a setup like the F103 front end???
