“Most drivers report much long life” with FM-V visors, and the visor’s coating “not come off when you drive hard rain condition.” Don’t mistake the amusing use of Japanglish on FM-V’s website as an indicator of an inferior product – these are definitely worthy competition to the other two popular mirrored visors available on the market (CaraCoat and LLC from Lucky Design).
I recently got a couple of these fancy looking visors for use on my yet to be “dressed up” plain white Arai SK5 helmet.

Maranello have come out with a very radical new design for 2009, the RS8. It features a centrally located rear brake system and 3rd bearing with a floating disc, floating caliper, and floating bearing. The entire frame design is also different to anything else currently on the market. The tubing has a symmetrical design, no rear torsion bar (one fixed tube across the back), and a very interesting front end.
View the pictures here, and discuss the kart in the forums here.
