Thumbs up

it looks like they shortened the arms and brought the hingepins outside the bulkheads. perhaps, the layshaft/motormount is metal instead of plastic. maybe the f/r are too. the car looks nice, but does not appear to be a departure of any sort from the 02R or the 02M. the refinements are nice, and there is no reason this car shouldn't be a winner. and i bet it's a tank like the earlier versions. this was one of, if not THE, first car to have this driveline/layout in it. yes, before the 415. and he**, it comes in pink.

yes, please post more...

If you look closely at the A-Arms you will see that they are the 415 Light weight versions ... but it looks as if they have different hubs and steering knuckles... hmmmm.

BMI makes CF chassis for all kinds of cars and he has, belive it or not, PINK Carbon Fiber. (I know, it's horrible, but some people like it )
