Again, RaceOpt/MTS/SNRC is not Japanese so doesn't fit the criteria.

The BD12 has the widest spaced arm mounting points. The ratio of the arm vs camber link is almost 1:1. Most of the Awx,Xray,Mugen, and now Axon mount the arms much further inboard. This in my opinion allows for much better geometry at ride height which then results in a much larger sweet spot for setup. Im excited about the TC10/3 as the awx has become way to boring once you find a solid base setup and I am excited to go back to a standard shock car and tinker around.

I'm definitely craving more info on the new Axon TC. It looks beautiful, so clean and simple.

I noticed in the parts list that there are 2 belt lengths listed: 351 and 348. I have thought for several years now that running twin 351's was not optimal for every TC design. Many interesting design features on this car.

I just noticed in one of the available images that the 348 belt is in the rear... where many TC's have the issue of non-optimal diff location.

What makes it not optimal?

I was looking at this with interest, and then I saw the price! Locally it's 30% more expensive than a new X4. Crikey!

When some TC's went to the mid pulley design, they went with the established 351 length of belts front and rear even though that didn't allow the rear (and/or front) diff to be placed in the perfect position for the overall design of the chassis, affecting optimal driveshaft angles for example. Just copying without redesigning other aspects of the chassis. For sure there is still some room for optimization with front to rear belt lengths and it's nice to see a manufacturer explore this.

That really depends on the wheelbase setting. The 348 belt will only shorten the bulkhead distance by 1.5mm, which is less than the wheelbase adjustment range on a lot of cars, especially fully hinge pin based cars.

I have a couple Arrowmax Medius converted T4s and these use 348 belts. Part of the reason for the shorter belt is that they use a 19 tooth centre pulley instead of 20. I tried to convert one to 20 tooth pulleys using Yokomo pulleys but couldn't get enough adjustment to use either 348mm or 351mm belts. Gave up and just used the Arrowmax system.

What surface do you all think this car favor's? As I don't see axon using this car on carpet or coming into the U.S market either. So with that being said do you think the US market should host more asphalt races rather than carpet races?
