Reminds me of my Swiss SMP slide Chrome 1/8

Beautiful engineering. Polished aluminium would be the best possible finish, but rather expensive

If it is going to be anodized, then it needs to be hard anodized. There is zero wear on anything hard anodized on my losi even after 2 years plus racing. Normal anodizing is a waste of time as it wears away to easily.

Nice video Oleg.Only you guys have two free rolling bearings supporting the middle of the shaft , any particular reason why ? Also are there grub screws under every lower A arm for ride height adjustments???

I'm assuming to minimized the vibration of the shaft for smoother operation and transition of power to the tires.

I wonder if Oleg tested his shaft system strength versus a traditional shaft system! If so, what did he uncover??????? Hopefully he will enlighten us!!!

These rollers prevent shaft oscillations at resonance rotation speed.
Our 7075-T6 shaft is thinner and longer than others so resonance speed is within operational range.
There are adjusting screws under every lower arms.


JayBee, Pre-order list exist. We are collecting all messages of orders from all sources but sometimes we have no time for prompt reply due to current high flow of orders.

Gotta love the level of engineering of this chassis... Bearings on the main shaft so you don't loose motor energy as sound....


C'mon Oleg... How much longer?

hi oleg

I really like this car you have brought to the TC market!

I was just wondering, based on the pictures i have seen in this thread as well as the videos i have watched, would the spur gears be standard (meaning aftermarket products could be used) or would you guys be making unique spur gears for the kit (like xray does)?

Standard spur gears (and pinion gears also) are suitable for this car.
