-4 Gears it is.
-Very little room for electronics.
-Let's make some more money with adding a linkage steering system instead of using a direct servo like the M-04

So they put a picture of the backside of box but no additional pictures of the chassis?

Maybe this week, they will release more.

We finally have some new photos. I was concerned that it would be heavy with respect to M07 since it has a tub. It appears to be a fairly simple design with limited parts. So hopefully the front tub piece is not too heavy.

Wow, that looks really cool.
I realize its probably for display but that transparent gearbox is pretty cool looking.

Only thing I could criticize is the location of the ESC, ...yet there are lots of smaller ESC's and receivers available than what is shown in the display images, perhaps both could be tucked up front where the current receiver is in the photos.

incidentally we had an M05 (original), M05VII, M06 and M07 at my last race. Hope to see some of these M08's racing too.
