What's up with the wheels on it? Will it use (what I assume is becoming more standard) Losi Style front and rear wheels? Even just having the rears work with the Losi/AE style rear wheels would be nice.

I've read that it was supposed to be able to use both Losi/AE wheels as well as the current Yokomo wheels. At least that's how the prototype was designed.

Default Pinion

Looks like you might need a special pinion. Check out where the belt runs next to the motor.

Looks like a 48p but check out the pic and you can see its mounted at the very end of the armature shaft. Looks like the setscrew is on the very edge.
You can see that the belt is between the can and the pinion.

The belt runs in a recessed part of the motor mount, just like the MX4 front belt did.

There is no problems with fitting pinions, though as you said they simply sit further out than normal.

As for wheels- mtr bkr is correct. AE/Losi rims plus adaptors for Yokomo rims.

Yeah i thought it looked like an old MX4 motor mount too...which was on the MR4 TC's and they never had any pinion worries.

Car looks superb...

According to this it should be early March.

HOWEVER... keep in mind that this date has already been pushed back at least once, so I'm not holding my breath.
