I heard something about a shaft drive version of this?

The vehicle from the pics looks quite nice. I wonder how much it will be?

I agree a cheaper alternative would be nice but I wonder how much flex would be introduced with say an FRP chassis? For the UK guys I know flex really shows its ugly head on there type of tracks.

only problem i see is lack of space!!!


In the pics, see where the ESC is? Right under the slipper shaft... For some of the larger ESCs (novak GTB comes to mind), it will have to be shoved as close as possible up against the servo to clear the slipper shaft... And even then im not totally sure it will fit...

Also, see where the receiver is? See what kind of receiver it is? a KO 302-f the TINIEST receiver ever... And even then its squeezed in...

Not much new information for you guys, but yokomousa just added an ad on their homepage for the car. It doesn't say much, just that it'll be available soon and the price is TBA.

Those pics do show a lot of room on the car, HOWEVER the ESC there is a quantum competition and the receiver is a 302-f. Those things are TINY. When you take into account that most people dont use those tiny electronics, you can see what I'm saying about the room...

Do you think a GTB w/ fan would clear the slipper shaft? what about like a standard sixe reciever in the same place as the ko 302-f is? definately TIGHT...

maybe you can swap the position of the ESC and the receiver if you are using a GTB unit? I think the receiver would fit under the slipper shaft area and then on the receiver side there isn't anything in the way overhead, depending of course how the body fits.

You could then run short wires to the motor if you choose to.

Cool

Yokomo did their homework this time around. It's a full-race 4WD buggy that's pure business IMO. The double-slipper system with pre-load adjustments for both front and rear is a innovative idea. I just hope they will not charge us mere mortals an arm and a leg to get this racer. Putting in a GTB brushless system will really be a challenge because from the look of things, it's really going to be tight. Kudos to Yokomo for throwing their hat into the ring and bringing this ride into reality!
