This is supposedly the replacement for the a048 but my japanese is useless so i could be wrong. Its been out in Japan for almost a year now. Does anybody know anything about them?? Availability?? How good they are relative to A048s??

At the lotus school out in NV a Yoko rep took the course also and mentioned the A050 will be out late 08 or worst case early 09. He also did mention that it will be much better with heat cycling. One thing I thought was interesting as you stated was that they do only so many per run and they will run out. So if you like them buy a spare set because they maybe gone when you want them.
Limited availability = argh.

I was hoping they price them competitively to the R888. Who wouldn't want a small price war for the Lotus market? Looks like it won't happen
