Unless I missed something, it looks like the newest car doesn't use the old style side belt tensioner. It seems to be integrated with the left side carbon chassis brace??????????

You're not missing anything. I saw the same thing. I was just curious.

I tried it all, and I own it all too! and I love Kyosho cars, because I sell a lot of KYOSHO parts, and do you want to know why? and I believe you know why, but I am not going to brag about it.

... and it looks like they finally got rid of those stupid phillips head sheet metal screws. About time!! They don't belong on a race car.

Serpent is the only one left with those darn nightmares.

I have to agree with Nigel here. I hate phillips screws myself, but after finding the right screwdriver, I haven striped one screw.

Back on topic. Anyone know when the car will be out, can wait ot get mine

It is a bit different on the exhaust side (antenna hole) and in the area around the steering servo arm and throttle servo mounting area where there in no room for the receiver.

I wonder if it will be a direct fit for the current car. Be nice to lay the throttle servo on its side.
