It seems to me they should include the JConcepts body, not the Proline body. The Ronnefalk low graphite tower would be nice too.

I also wish they keep the carbon arm inserts that the v2 has.

I have an E817 and just finished assembly of the D817. Coming from AE cars I'm really impressed with how well thought out everything is. I saw a complaint about the suspension blocks and extra steps to get to the diff. While it is a little more work one thing this car won't do is leave you on the sidelines with a pulled out suspension pin. Something I've personally done on the RC8 more then once.

I can't wait to get this car on the track n xt week.

I wasn't expecting much of a change. After building my E817, I've essentially have seen all the changes except for the unis. I'm intrigued by the different unis for the front and rear. I didn't know that was the route HB decided to go, as opposed to having the same unis front and rear and changing the inner bearing of the rear hubs.

What's the deal with the new rear hubs? Any geometry change there?

I was going through both manuals and comparing the parts and price. It's about $140 w/out the chassis and exhaust post! I'll slap on my standard chassis lol!

Just out of interest. The E817 uses a stock length chassis where as the New D817 has the plus 4mm Chassis
