We'll have to see just how close the pinion comes to the belt if you flip it and push the motor closer to center. Think Awesomatix A800.

I fail to see the innovation. The Kawada Sigma is the same drivetrain design and a lot simpler plus one of the easiest cars to service. And before it, there was the Alcyon and others even older going back well into the nineties.

The motor might seem far from the centreline because the bottom deck is a heck of a lot narrower than TA05 type things. I suspect another limitation is how far out you want to push the battery on the opposite side. Not much choice really. I was hoping for a single design belt with a central motor a la Xray T1 and belt over the motor. Oh, well, I'll have to build it myself, then.

PS. Such a design would benefit form the availability of square lipos as well and would really centralise the whole weight whilst keeping things perfectly symmetrical left to right - the holy grail of touring chassis designs.

The more I hear and read about this chassis, the more I'm convinced that it will be a great clubracer. Drove the last years the TB-03R,TT02 and the EVO 6. Will order this chassis as soon Tamiya releases the TA07

Aside from the Aluminum ball diff set, it also can be fitted with the front direct coupling.
