I'm old-school; I still run Ni-MH Batteries. But this chassis looks interesting (it should keep me busy until the Spring).
I'll get a Li-po battery for this chassis.

That'll be tricky since they use CV joints

Default Chassis for Ni-MH Batteries?

I would like to have a TB Evo 7; but I don't really want to go Li-Po yet(I'm old school). You think they'll make a Ni-MH chassis?

I don't see Tamiya doing it, though there is always a chance an aftermarket company might.

Changing a spur looks as easy as 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 steps.

Why? It only takes 4 screws to access the spur on the TB03 VDS. This one only looks like maybe 3 screws. Much easier than past Evos.

I would like to see better how is rear diff connected to spur in rearmost position and how hard it is to change spur.

Edit: now I noticed it's similar system to TB04 or EVO5 MS. So spur change will be super easy But change of layout requies changing of input shaft in rear gearbox...
