I think he is getting on well with the new car. I think this will give some fodder to those ready to buy

I wonder if we may not see more in depth until later on as we get closers to the worlds. It seems as Collari is running the Infinity car as a shakedown as well. What chassis is Alberto running?

Looks like the brakes are on the gearbox shaft.

Looking at the whole design it looks like a MRX5 copy

Still not many pics from ENS, yet Picco and Pietsch did well. I imagine Picco still running the MRX5 WC.

Yeah, I am sure they may be a few things kept under wraps until then. Judging by the time sheets overall it looked as though Robert was getting comfortable with the new car. I did not see any pictures of Picco's car, wonder if he was running the new car, or a hybrid of the two?

yeah i read the info from the ens that it was unveiled .. x fingers for pics.. but none... lol but from what was said.. ie handling is different etc.. it ll be interesting. another car had its unveiling at last... new to the game so to speak... pretty saaaweet and not overly generic.. youd be hard pressed to have a design that looks different and performs at the cream of the crop.. for those with the most creative mind.. perfection is testing , design testing and yeah... go figure..

My opinion, I don't see it having the same jump in performance as from the 4x - 5
Latest trend seems to be 0.8 pitch transmissions and front bumper under car aero, kyosho has the most interesting (1/10)

The 4x was a great chassis, yet the changes that are made on most cars are changes most average racer will not be able to immediately notice. I am also sure that these days with spec tires at events, the enforcement of not running tire sauce has led to a lot of subtle changes to get the most out of the car. I.e. being able to change chassis flex, on my 4x, all I could do was mill the top deck to aid in a little front side to side flex. And as far as aero devices, the bumpers have always been used in the past to tune the car, just now they have removable inserts and a lip on the back end. Yet the HB R8 having front and rear "winged bumper" and diffuser, I am not so sure that trend will carry over, as many cars that have been updated since the R8 do not have such aggressively styled devices. Heck, many top drivers have ditched the project push qc axles in favor of plain stock ones.
