sorry i might have missed the news but the car in the picture shown with sirio engine. So maybe it's not shimo's because he is not using sirio engines anymore?

This car in the photos is belonging to the cars designer Takashi Miyashita, he was running the Sirio motor. Shimo was running the M3 with an O.S. engine and there was one other M3 from the Japanese team. No other driver at the event was running the complete car, but some drivers used some parts of it such as Bertin. The main reason for this was that according to Bertin, they only received the car 3 weeks before the event and while the car was good, they didn't know it well enough to be able to adapt quickly to changing track conditions so they stuck with the previous Evolva as they know how it reacts very well.

Also regarding the screws on the car, I don't know for sure if it will come with hex heads or whether this was just a preference of Miyashita.

Kyosho did a very good job. The car looks great and very easy to adjust
