A good news is unlike the TB03, there is complete flat between the countersunk screw hole, so we don't have to flipped the block

So it is;

Front-front - 1XD Old Type
Front-rear - 1XD V2
Rear-front - 1XD Old type
Rear-rear - 1A Old type

no?

the front rear can use the old type or the v2.
for me, i prefer the old type but my local hobby store doesn't have 3 old type 1XD in stock, so I have to go with the v2 on the Front-rear

Dont stress about the track width !! these cars are designed for the narrower bodies and are a lot more fun and challenging to drive fast.
If you traction roll, your setup needs wok.
Wait for them to be released, i am sure you will love them.

Einix, since you have the manual and all, can you tell us what the internal drive ratio and the max size pinion it can use? Thanks

Internal ratio is 2.60

the pro comes with a 26t pinion, and a 68t spur = 6.80 final drive ratio

with the stock spur and the optional 29t pinion it only gets down to a 6.10 final drive

some very interesting things:

plastic suspension mounts use a plastic ball on the rod like the TB03
kit comes with plastic suspension blocks (3) XD, (1) X, (1) A, & (1) B
the rear block in the front of the car can use the V2 type block
Spur gear is mounted on a plastic mount, so can be immediately replaced with an industry standard 64p or 48p (if desired).
Dog bones are the same as the TA05, so a 46mm swing shaft is needed for the universal, but a TB03 wheel axle is used
Rear axle is the same as the Mini, so 54183 will work
the suspension shaft is a 46mm like the EVO4, 53851 is the Ti coated replacement
Turnbuckles = (5) 3x32mm & (4) 3x23mm, if you want Titanium
Bearings = (11) 10x5mm, (2) 15x10mm, (2) 8x5mm, & (1) 8x4mm also (4) 8x5mm for the steering (these are metal bushings in the kit)
All suspension componants are plastic, so if desired you need the 416 parts for the carbon reinforced plastics (53928 arms, 51332 f upright, 51333 r upright)
Diff plate is from the TRF501x (51287)
Shocks are built with 3 hole pistons, and a have a pair of yellow springs, and a pair of blue springs, the shocks are the TRF version (42101) with the Ti coated shafts
the rear shock tower looks to have the TA05 and TB03 mounting holes, bud needs a 53882 Damper stay spacer to clear the bulkhead.
Something else that is interesting, there is a plate that the Speeder and receiver mount onto, and it is removable with 2 screws.
You don't have to use the tray for the servo, if you don't want.

This is very important if I'm going to run this in 17.5 non-boosted.

I don't have the small spur gears like they run in a 12th scale, but I'm sure you can get pretty close

Something like a 72t spur and a 48t pinion gets you a 3.9

I was able to stuff a 56t pinion into the tb03, so I hope that's how tamiya designed this one. Well, at least I can run it w/o the gear cover if I have to.
