My guess by the look of things is a micro, just look at the arms and dog bones in the picture.

Well the more I look at those pics the more confused I get. I'm starting to think they either have a very weird way of adjusting rear toe or there is four wheel steering
There is very little suspension movement allowed, and it looks like they must be using an inboard shock if any at all, with bellcranks. Obviously it's a small car, and we may be seeing the corner of the chassis in a couple pics, which they've given a light colour, maybe it's silver woven graphite
Very wide diffs, so could well mean the cells are down the center (probably the only good bit of the Pro 3) and UJ's mean it's a high spec kit with racing in mind.
So I'm guessing a 4wd, 4 wheel steering, center cell, micro pan car

If you play the clip for the preview, at the top of the box on the bar at the end it has the word micro.

To be perfectly honest the micro sucks compared to the WWS Pro 1/18th. It has independant suspension all round, granted it isn't 4wd but it will still kick the crap out of the micro on a prep'd track. If Xray come out with a 4wd 1/18th the WWS Pro will probabely still beat it around a prep'd track.

A. next largest on-road electric market aside from1/10 touring
B. new and revolutionary (1st 4wd pan car)
C. not a touring car

All I can say is if thats what I am looking at, I will be looking forward to a new winer carpet class.
This is what my money is on, like I said earlier. The 1/12 Yokomo tourer is just basically a 1/10 touring car with a shorter chassis and shorter arms and stuff. But I think with that car it would be quite difficult to get much run time because it would weigh so much, and it only runs 4 cells, so you would have to gear it up to get more speed, but than you would be losing run time, and you already lost some run time, speed, and acceleration because of the weight. So I'm guessing that this is going to be a 1/12 touring car but much much lighter and so it will just put a spanking on the Yok. That's just whats going through my very confused mind right now .

Damn, this is the fastest moving thread around right now. I leave for work, and there are a few posts, come back and it's 4 pages deep. Something tells me that whatever XRay releases, it's going to be a hit!
