the 0.8 pitch may not be as durable as the 1.0. i have seen my friend with the capricon some years ago, he was stripping the gear all the time. he is not a new guy to 1/8, he could afford to buy parts(he spent), but he finally moved to mugen.
as the latest 5 or even 6 may have more "flexibility" in the chassis, i would doubt using the 0.8

I would mount a 5 gearbox....

Or maybe mounting a long turnbuckle between the bulkhead and the radio tray.

But first see how well the design is.

For the 6, something I am very sure Hara will not race the 6 in the World Cup at Brazil like he raced the 5 before in US. Hara is in HK this weekend and next as well.

The fuel cap is new, two rear linkage for firming the rear end with the radio plate, the muffler mount with the chassis.
Pictures hunt ��

It seems they have taken a lot of ideas from Capricorn and Serpent and bolted them onto a Mugen...

I wonder if the chassis comes with a different anodizing, or perhaps its the light. Could also be a Pre-production piece? Just curious. Looks awesome though... as a Mugen always does.
