Since the front end is based on the B4, I would love to have the front CF shock tower on my B4.

The Desc410r is a great example. It's been winning most of the large events like the AMS, Hotrod Shootout,etc and at times taking the entire podium.
Do you know if the diff will be gear or ball diff?

This car is nothing like a B4, you might be referring to the prototype cars that were tested.

From what I have heard from sources in the UK, the DEX210 will come with bigbore shocks, a ball diff as standard in the kit, with an option for a gear diff. The kit will include both mid and rear motor options like the TLR 22. The price is expected to be around £200 GPS or $330 - $350 US Dollars, available end of August.

Ball diff would make sense for a 2WD. Do you know what the chassis will be..22 style or B4 style?

I like it! I can see if they were a little upset when the 22 was launched. many comparisons can be had. I don't understand the left side spur gear in the rear motor layout and the weird layout of the slipper adjustment. Overall I like it.

Edit: It looks like you can run the motor left or right in the rear motor configuration. Also, they have the bearings in the front wheels and not in the hubs. a little disappointed in that.

Any photos of the mid motor config? Looks like a dream low slung and nasty space seems a bit tight after a mid motor I would think.....
