Diff height adjustment, Chassis flex adjustments, some adjustments to the front steering geometry... looks like some new retainer system on the center outdrive/bone.

Not sure what the strange things in the middle of the bones are either, I'm guessing that's just there because they don't have proper length bones in production yet. Hopefully they offer a Factory Lite and can show off those bones in the next teaser

Have they ever? Don't remember anything for a fan on my b64/b6/b6.1/sc5m/sc6.1/t5/t6.1. Wish they would build this in mind of a ebuggy upgrade, like the eb410/et410. Release date or info would be good. Thought I seen 2 weeks somewhere?

From what can be seen in the pictures and according to common sense , it's truly the B6.1's brother: AE checked what was good on their old car, what features people liked on the competition's kits and came up with decent solutions, some new ones and some familiar ones. They didn't reinvent the wheel (although we have yet to see the B74 with wheels on it), but put everything you want to see on a 2019 wheeler into one package, which will work on a wide range of tracks and be available everywhere at a customer friendly price. Racers and aftermarket companies will be happy, and maybe the Easter bunny will be able to take some credit for making us happy, too.

With some old school Durango thrown in for good measure.

Looks like another thing they addressed was the angle of the center shafts at the outdrives. Now they are flatter with the center diff, should free up the drivetrain a bit more and reduce some drag. The b64 were at weird angles due to the front kickup and sharing the same bulkheads f/r, the front outdrive was pointed downward in the chassis when it should be running parallel with the chassis pointed straight at the center diff. On the b74 the angle of the front and rear diff is fixed more parallel with the chassis with the new bulkhead designs.

Also looks like they went back to the old style input shaft/outdrive design. Hopefully that allows for molded ring & pinion gears. Much lighter and 13.5 has become the more popular dirt 4wd class from what I can see.
