As a tamiya fan i think it looks interesting and would like to get my hands on one but not to sure how well it will work out with a 3 belt drive system , nice to see the lipo down the middle of the car though.

Looks purdy cool.

Also, it's a two belt system for the front drive with a geared connection to rear drive.

I may race it next year in TCS, if an F version is released.

Those rockers are really positioned in a bad angle. Too horizontal an should line up as much as possible with the push rods.

Perhaps I'll slap my old Newman Porsche body in GT class... and get banned.

I would rather swap the receiver location with the ESC. It makes a lot more sense that way for shorter wires. Additionally, I wonder if the 4 holes on top of the motor can accomodate some fan to blow air into the concealed motor to cool it.

the receiver probably won't balance out the left/right weight with the steering servo, especially with the dsm receivers these days

Right, but that leaves me wondering why Tamiya doesn't design the servo to be on the other side instead.

The belt(s) would be an issue if the servo was on the side the ESC is on in the pictures. Thats my guess why it is the way it is.

It became a lot easier to see the chassis layout without the clutter of the electronics. Initially, I didn't like it, but I like it now. A little concerned about the location of the spur. Hopefully, the gear cover will work really well.
