Looks like a three gear tranny at each end. Can't see why they put the belt pulleys up high like that though, unless they're using Bmax2 RM transmission parts at each end?

How many bearings will this thing have? 3 gear tranny at each end, pulleys, layshaft and wheels. Wow thats alot of potential for problems. Saying thay, my deposit is paid and eagerly await its arrival. At least the belts look as though they are going to be doddle to replace.

Actually its rather big in Australia. TLR redesigned parts based on their input as well because of it and it helped the mod guys with problems they had. So there is a niche for all classes.

Yokomo normally releases a base model then a factory will come out later when parts are available from their suppliers (people will buy it cause its the new kid on the block anyways).

This thing looks very interesting. Takes me back to my YZ-10 circa 1990. I might have to pick one up just for nostalgia.
