The new style of centre-differential mounts where it loads from the top, just remove the top plate and the diff comes right out without affecting the brakes, linkage, or removing the mount.


CLOSED CELL INSERTS.

I'm HB guy and I'm not really sure I'd go for a composite chassis. I specifically run a techno conversion electric because I did NOT want to run the ve8 outdoors, and now they did it to their new nitro? It's going to be a 1 race event car unless they seriously skid plate the bejesus out of it. I race every week outdoors, snuggling tiny rocks and an a generally abrasive track surface, and I've already replaced my d8 chassis once. I shudder to think of a composite chassis's wear at my home nitro track, or heaven forbid, some place that has a REALLY abrasive track surface.

Captured hingepins. If I never see another tiny e-clip it will be too soon.

I know this is in the nitro section, but I'm saying brushless motors, and lipo batteries. Nitro guys have benifited from lipos also

Modular design (couple screws and the rear/front end is off, diff is out, engine is out, radio tray is off, etc....) makes cleaning and maintenance so much easier

The liquid cooled 2 stroke engine will be the wave of the future, like the Grossi. No tuning, no over heating, no temp guns and low CG; just drive. The samething happened to motocross many many years ago.
