I heard they will be releasing the Le Mans Mazda body for the 2.4 car. Does anyone have a pic of it or a link. Thank You.

SWEET! Thank you Kyosho for releaseing another Leman's car! I guess I know which two of the Dnano's I'll be getting, the white 962, and the Mazda! Any idea when this one will become available?
I see the description sais April 2008, so pretty soon then, cool!

The word on the street is that they will not be releasing them in the states, so my advice would be to by from Japan on the internet or if you have a friend over there that can ship to you.

I don't think that's true because it's on tim's release list for april.

My bad guys. I thought I was posting in the Dnano thread. Yes this body will be available in the states and I can't wait to get one too.

Hey stitchy, you still in Japan? Have you seen the Dnano come out yet? What do you think of it?

Not in Japan anymore, but Nano looks cool! I only got to see one in a box, as they're not selling them on a big scale yet.

Hey stitchy, is it really that tiny? I know how small 1/43 scale is in the die-cast world, but the Epoch's are actually kind of big for 1/43. I'm curious as to how the Dnano compares to the Epoch in size.

Sorry, I don't know anything about the Epoch (kinda new to mini-z'), but yes, they are very small!

Ok, do you know the Micro-T? How does it compare to that?

Well, I have the Micro-DT, and it's definitely smaller than that.

WOW! I thought the Micro-T was small! How small is this thing? It would be cool if somebody could provide a compairison picture.

Does anybody think that the new Mazda body will be stronger up front than the Porsche 962? I was racing mine today and I had my right lense and headlight bucket pop out and the bumper cracked. I hope the Mazda's stronger.

I would say alittle stronger at best. Really need to devise some kind of bumper system. Just need the time to mess with it. I do think its a very cool looking body.;)

My concern is the wing. It looks a little flimsy, but I do agree that the front needs to be stronger. I cracked the front left side off after about a week of use on my Rothman

That's why I'm in the process of changing from Porsche to the much stronger Diablo body. I wish to preserve my 962 as much as possible. Only problem is I don't have a dumby chassis that is the right length.

The wing screws on. If they sell replacement wings, it would be easy.;)

A new Mazda body! Love the paint scheme on this one, matches the Dnano version!
Check out ebay item 350055101904.

I have the new Mazda body, 787, it's far stronger than the Porsche 962 up front. Much thicker front lip, doesn't require strengthening. I really like it. It's also slightly shorter overall but the wheelbase is the same at 102mm.
