new kyosho wing stay

But a day after revealing Yuichi Kanai & his team have been running a new wing (& we believe slightly updated cab forward body) – the above photo surfaced via Facebook confirming that the new Kyosho wing uses an updated wing mount.

Whether the ‘stay’ is the same as the most recent update (IF429 – circa 2008) and only features updated mounts at the top remains to be seen, however the design is quite different, appearing to support improved lateral load with the two ‘pronounced prongs’ either side.

The ‘winged’ mount could be in response to the wickerbill rear wing, which on paper should add a little more downforce, and thus a larger mount surface area may help to reduce the outer edges from bending a touch & stiffen the mid section.

Thank you to the contributor who sent this in!
