WTH is up with the front "knuckles"? It looks like some kind of pillow-ball / kingpin hybrid.

Weird.

This thing looks pretty good. Kind of a Losi 8 knock off taken to the next level from what I can deduce. Who can translate the Chinese videos?

man looks good.

looks like a kyosho, mugen, AE and losi all rolled into 1.

most important will be its durability, hopefully they get it right and not end up like the swift
