Means they can have a pinnacle (in their range) of each style.

Let's look at the positives for 17.5 blinky

- low weight (the plastic bulkheads are probably lighter than an alloy one?)
- stiff, but compliant chassis
- relatively low maintenance, easy to adjust gear diffs
- excellent suspension arms and mounting
- class leading, low COG dampers
- decent modern geometry (you would expect)
- shaft drive punch
- lots of adjustability (susp blocks for example)
- excellent DCJs in the front and proven reliable rear shaft design

Assuming the FDR can be made to work it will definitely competitive when power isn't crazy and won't be flexing the hell out of the chassis.

So from Kentechs pictures (I'm eternally grateful for his site btw);

Flipped 418 steering arms to clear the shaft.

Cantilevered spur and and bevel gear mount to let the motor move in (at least it appears) and use a traditional style motor mount.

Good stuff!

looks like they got the gearing issue solved

but I'm worried about how the upper deck is mounted. Looks like there is no bulkhead support, kinda like floating on raised posts...

hahaha shorty motors anyone?

I'm also want to know how far out the motor sits and if the tb04 pro II has a similar motor mount as the cad pictures of it show us a beautiful gearbox cover...

upon closer inspection over at the better pic from Kentech, a good frontal crash or read end will bend those posts that hold up the upper deck

The EVO 6 motor mount is very unique compared to the way we did it on the TB-04. You will have far greater gear ratio options compared the the standard TB-04. Though, you can use the Exotec Alum motor adapter for the TB-04 to get more gearing and we are also releasing one at a later date.

The EVO6 design only for stock motor?
Can run in modify motor? (such as 6.5t~4.5t +boost/turbo)
Don't know the bevel gear strength ?
