Did anyone who went to the EOS get a look at the new car?

12mm hex wheels have been mentioned before now, but anything majorly new on it as it did seem to be going quite well?

It's not tyre additive it's motor spray that comes with it, honest.

From pics you can defo see new front tower and maybe front shocks, they have that brown coating fox something.
There looks like a new front bulkhead as well, didn't take long at all for xray to get that sorted.

I think it comes with a pre-installed battering ram, to punt others off the track.

Looks like there are quite a few changes on the '16 car, new chassis & side pods, new 3 pad slipper, new rear bulkhead, possibly front wishbones, different battery position & a few other bits.

As John says

You can see what has changed on the XB4 '16 from the new XB4 spares they have listed at MB Models.

All the changes that John mentions have '16 specific spare parts.

Looks like a typical subtle Xray upgrade - evolution not revolution

, i see they are listing a 2mm chassis as std , but just hope they don't bring out an optional chassis soon after for high grip etc , but it sounds really good ��

As they are adding the hard side pods Im not really sure that there will be another chassis coming.
Interesting to see how the 15 would go with a bit of CF as a side pod brace or fill the side pods.

Looks like the new car will be available mid Oct according to Mb models.

I am wondering if I will go faster with the '16 car.....

the new 16 does look a little bit seeeexy.

might have to have a proper clear out for the next years season and go all new 16 mode..............

it does make me feel warm inside looking at the specs, pics etc
