From that picture it looks like quite a few changes have been made but still keeping most of the original layout.

1. Upper deck has changed dramatically for new laydown steering servo design.

2. Lay down steering servo.

3. Mount for personal transponder

4. The rear suspension is somewhat different. The upper wishbone looks more adjustable for rollcenter etc

5. It looks like the rear anti-roll bar goes over the top now instead of around the back.

6. The front shock mounting location is different. Looks to be part of the uprights and not a separate alloy mount.

7. The tank is different.

Isn't that an MTX-3 tank and upper deck?

Now that you mention it. Yep. Even the rear hub carriers and upper wishbones appear to look like Mugen ones also.

Looks interesting...maybe this new Yok car will get me back into RC's.

But I might wait....seeing as how Yokomo likes to release many versions of its car.

That's very true, but for the most part, they do offer conversions..

I just found this register on the list of pilots for the IFMAR 2004 Preworlds 200mm official website ... :

Masami Hirosaka
Yokomo/ Novarossi/ KO Propo
Team Yokomo

So, Mr. Masami have his inscrption done ... until now its the only 200mm nitro pilot "from the top ten ones" that appears on the list ...

I cant wait to see wich car he is driving ...
