The belt version of the current ABC Genetic is the Atlas Beat. This one is rarer than the Fujin and VMII put together.

The Atlas Beat is more a collector item , several years passed since it hit the market.
I really hope ABC will come out with a new belt driven Mini though

Might be rare now, but earlier this year I bought SIX of them for $79 USD ea... rcmart were just trying to get rid of them. So I helped them out. That's the kinda guy I am.

And Anthony Atack drove one of mine to 2nd place in the Mini Nats earlier this year (behind Honkie Frankies VMII)

So you bought all the Atlas Beat cars. I think hording is a treatable condition. You can start by passing one of them to me.

Honkie Frankie? As in Frankie T.?

Would the new "Procross" version of the Ofna be a contender ??
or just a toy. How do the diffs hold up to more powerfull (say) 13.5T BL motors ??
at $150 ,R2R, price isnt bad

Ghiro, the matter is in hand.We have the VMII review coming up as well as the new Tamiya M-Four. Sometime in the next couple of weeks they should both be up online.

I'm having an experience with steering "C" hubs. these things all cracks in the same spot and it seems like the Aluminum made part isn't available anywere.

How about your experience with these things guys?
