Do the fender side vents look like they open more wider, or is it the camo?

Looks the same to me.

It depends on the pricing and also whether the track edition is stripped of backseat (and whether you need it or not).

176 lbs weight reduction is close to what I thought. ( said, 150 - 200 lbs max). However, disappointed in power increase up to only 472 HP. In Europe/Asia the RCF and LC500 both are rated at 471 HP so I am not sure what that additional 5 HP mean.

Wonder what the changes would be on the standard RCF?

It has launch control with it and has a 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds (standard RCF now with launch control is 4.2 seconds officially)

Standard RCF now gets aero parts as well

I wonder if car magz will be able to get better since it's usually a little higher than what the car can get .Maybe 4 flat or 4.1?

Standard did 4.2 - 4.3 seconds so yes. They shortened the gearing on both versions as well.

Slightly more aggressive diff (3.13), revised intake manifold, revised intake, CF bits and such (180 lb reduction), cc brakes, fixed wing. Peak power increase may be negligible, but I wonder how much area under the curve has increased due to air induction upgrades. Looks to be the same weight as the ISF, except with more power.
I'm really liking this thing!

With only 60 units in the US I expect the Track Edition to be pretty expensive.
