lol.... HPI will **** their pants if Yokomo comes out with a shaft driven 1/18 micro.
Xray and Yok... now have 1/12 sedans... HPI will probably soon follow as well...

The shocks seems to be the same as HPI's. Wonder if M18's traction will be better than RS4.

Do you think they are testing the market for a shaft driven 10th scale?

As far as the 1/12 it uses all but maybe 6 parts from the 1/10 chassis so make your own competitiveness conclusions.
Last,straight from Mario Hudy,"No shaft 1/10 anytime soon. We just came out with two new belt cars." Read with a Slovakian accent.

my only other concern is adjustable wheelbase... for 140mm and 150mm bodies...

The car is very tunable...adjustable toe-in, down-stops, track width, body post, 5-6cell capable. etc....
Rc, you're right. I've heard through a very reliably source that the diff will be available. The only reason its not included on the car is obvious right?

You have to understand that XRAy spent so much on the R&D for the EVO2, then decided to come out with the T1R to cover the tooking expense, so even if the shaft is ready to roll, they'll hold it off until all the tooling is covered for the EVO2. Plus, AFASIK, the shaft drive is already done. IMO
