The 705 has advantages and disadvantages........firstly you won't be buying many options for the car....because there simply won't be any to buy........for the money you save in options....you can afford the more expensive spares prices!! I don't know the spares prices yet, but in general they will be more than RR spares. If it is "only" double the price then I will be happy.

If you look at the RR, I spent almost the price of the car in options before I even put it down on the track. It was a $3xxx car and it simply carried on going up as new options came out. This is what I want to avoid with the 705!!

For the MTX3, although the car has a lot of options on it already....I can still see potential for many many more options to go on the car.....just wait and see!

PYC? Foam tires and traction compound will give plenty of traction!

They have resurfaced the track since you were last here......the traction has increased!! especially with a regular no. of GP dumping residue fuel and bits of foams onto the surface!!

FYI, slated for release are abt 5 options each from Kawa and Mugen for the MTX3. We see CVDs, AL eng mounts, wheel hex...

Try them out on your car when you come over......I'm sure Manticore will give you a "turbo boost" at the end of the straight if you want to test thier durability!!!!

in fact, Ti is not as light as aluminuim. It is just Ti has the light weight while having the strength.
