Lots of nice looking refinements on the new car but the new diff is the main attraction I think.

Getting back into the hobby and need to make a decision. I like this one I must say. Where to buy and parts is my worry. Racing on carpet so I would need an aluminum chassis.

That diff looks overengineered and heavy. I'd be curious to see the complete weight of it.

Is that a quattro/torsen type diff ??? I think folks will just retrofit the diff into other car brands, eventhough it might be a bit heavier than an open diff: if it is around 22g, then it will not need to be lightened.....

I'm thinking of putting that diff into my X4. Just need a bearing-to-bearing width measurement.

No It is not a Torsen Diff... they use helical gears!!!

Cool to see another offering, sure hope they got their quality bugs ironed out (1:8 GTX was a different story).

Too bad unless you live in Italy, it doesnt make much sense in owning this car.

Finally a new car that doesn't try to copy as much as possible from AMX. Though I had a déjà vu moment with the front wheelhubs.

h2e five wheelhubs Jan2022. Right one looks a bit familiar?

For the rest, It looks like the diff might be run with half the number of gears, too?
Edit: with 5 pairs of small gears, removal won't be possible, because of the imbalance... shame...
The rear body post solution looks neat.
Some dislikes can be found at the large motor to battery offset.

I dunno, this car looks a lot like a generic layout hinge pin style car. Other than the diff I don't see any differentiating features.

Yes. Just another iteration of motor and spur positions, and corresponding topdeck variation. But yes, the suspension looks ordinary at best.
