I've been waiting on the new model from 2.5 years now. Looks like it's going to be worth the wait...

What's the purpose of the carbon fiber discs in the wheels? Looks like another part to break in a crash.

It's hard to form an opinion of a car just from looking at some pictures. We'll have to wait until the car goes into production.

I beleive those are used to keep air from entering thru the wheel well. Which could effect handling.

It'll be a long time before an ordinary guy without connections can get hold of one I would think. There will be so much demand; not only from Mugen fans; but also from an avalanche of supporters of other brands. Thus; it will probably be some time before we learn if they can keep up with us goats.

Kindest regards,
Lars.
