Yeah I read that too, but with three gears, you're back to the same direction as driving a pulley straight off the spur shaft (like the K1). I am assuming the three gears allows more reasonable pinion and spur sizes.

Ya direct drive is difficult to get proper reduction without stressing the belt with tight bends around little pulleys. This gearbox is done proper

I think, they tried to get the spur/shaft as low as possible too!?

Where did you get that from? I can't find it on their site. Called in?

Like Tony said, DiscountRC is estimating $399 and if you bought direct from Schumacher it works out to about $383 shipped.

Even if it was $425 it would still be worth it considering what you get in the box. The car needs nothing for just about any med-high grip surface and up. An aluminum servo horn is about all I'd add but none of the other guys throw that in either.

Agreed. For a similar price as the plastic cars, your getting aluminum bulkheads, carbon galore, superior drivetrain durability and most of all massive adjustability.

Exactly. The range of adjustability is really the ticket in my situation.

There is a track converting to Astro in my area and we already have a great med-high grip clay track too. The clay track has many people running laydown cars on pin tires but in the Summer the humidity makes it possible to run slicks. This car will cover all my bases for any of the above scenarios. And if for whatever reason the standup tranny in the KD becomes necessary, there is the KD conversion kit right there.

Try putting a TLR 22 3.0 package together that will do all this.

Same here. Everyone at the clay track is laydown with ghost pins or slicks. 1hr north we have a big carpet track. Done and done

Seems like the KC maybe more popular than the KD. Maybe the KC with a ball diff for medium bite dirt tracks? I really like the new KD,KC and seems to be the best 2wd coming out, but at 399 I'm just not that dedicated to 2wd as I enjoy 4wd much more...How long before the K4D and K4C come out ?

KC TO KD Conversion kit 108.33 UK
KD TO KC Conversion kit 149.99 UK

So i guess without doing the maths it will come out at around the same price in total which ever kit you start with if you want the luxury of having both platforms considering the price difference between the kits,I have decided to go the way of the KD simply because the tracks i run on are far from high/medium grip!!

Cheers,
