I don't know why he edited his post but he said he personally spoke with an X-RAY team driver who told him this. I was kinda hoping it wasn't a micro...I just can't get exited about micro touring even if it is an X-RAY...

Check it again. That is "Microsoft" at the end.

If the shaft wasn't down the center of the car, the front and rear diffs would spin opposite eachother. Front tires would go reverse, and the rears would go forward...

You obviously have no idea how a shaft drive car works. Even if the shaft is off center it wouls have no bearing on what direction the wheels turn in, that is all dependent on what side of the diffs the gears are on. Rick

rick draper - i think he was pointing out that the logistics of it would pretty much prevent you from putting the front diff gear on the left side of the shaft's pinion gear, so while technically you could have the shaft running down the left side with cells in the middle, to do so you would need the front diff to extend out practically to the wheels, which would kinda screw up the suspension, cause you wouldn't be able to have any hubs or arms etc

Yeah, but TL01's aren't fast either, so the design doesn't really work. they're also really wierd in terms of drivetrain.

If this is a shaft driven 1/18 TC, I'm trying to figure out how much room would be left on the chassis for the batts and electronics. With a shaft in the middle, the motor would be on one side. With a shaft to one side, the motor would be in the middle. In the first case, the batt pack would be on the opposite side of the motor (very crappy balance) and in the second case, the batt would be weirdly placed surrounding the motor. Plus, most micro buffs run a minimum of six 2/3 cells in their car. A lot go with 8 cells and even ten. If there's only room in the car to run 4 cells, the micro buffs won't even bother buying one. Again, this is only if this thing is really a 1/18 TC, which I'm really starting to think it's not. There's already a lot of micro chassis manufacturers out there like Penguin and Motek for example, Motek coming out with a killer chassis for the micro HPI in August. I don't know if X-RAY will venture in the micro market, being that it's already very crowded IMHO.
