i will give it a go... looks cool.

last thing i remember this 'radical' (in shocking new appearance and mystery of performance) was when the PRO3 was released... that was a fun car to tinker with as well..

'space frame' could be the new thing..

Seeing as how this is a hobby, I may tinker with this one.

The abc gambardo has a similar space frame look.

I'm getting one, as mentioned it's good to have a car that you can tinker with.

Check out the photos

"Changeable motor layout three positions. In accordance with the course layout and the road surface condition and a wide range of settings. Layout also change the exchange of belt only in the re-adjustment of the tension is not required."

This makes me think that there are three fixed positions for the motor to be in (like a mini?) and changing gear ratio i.e. 64p gears and meshing them can become challenging. of course I could be wrong.

I would think being able to move the motor position has no impact on gearing. I read this as front/middle/rear on the chassis.

Let's hope you are wrong or this could end up being another mess like the TB04 and it's problems when it was first introduced.

im guessing similar to the recent trend in offroad buggies.. not necessarily the same layout, but a similar concept..

low grip, medium grip, high bite. motor placement was rear, mid and mid-forward... i think a few of the current 4wd offroad buggies have the ability to choose the option of running a shorty pac or full-size/saddle pac and how you place your motor in the car (fore/aft) determines which battery you can run...

Space frame reminded me of the M05. I am looking forward to this new sedan and given the Losi success, it might be good

No carbon chassis on the pro version is slightly underwhelming :/

Looking at the pics I think a carbon chassis is possible. It will only be for the MS version or maybe the R.

I think he was talking about carbon filled molded chassis, not carbon fiber....
