Awesomatix said recently to a member of our forum:

''Dear Matt,

Thanks for your letter and interest to our car. Unfortunately I cannot predict a release date now. We very much wish to be in time till February but are not completely assured that it happens.

There are some difficulties with financing of manufacture of the first batch. I carry on negotiations with several investors now but the definitive agreement is not reached yet.

But it is found out also positive in such delay of release - we managed to improve considerably our car to adapt it better for new technical requirements - switch to LiPo battery as main battery for races. Our car is designed now around LiPo batteries. NiMh are considered as optional.

Best regards,
Oleg Babich''

I want a Yokomo SD with an Andy East conversion.....woven carbon....tub....

I can't comment on this being the "best" car from a handling perspective against all the shaft drive cars, but it sure has been one of the most durable I have had and I love shaft driven cars, the academy STR4 pro II. knuckles on this thing are huge and it takes a beating in VTA, perfect for my driving style.

+1 - I've owned TC3s, a Yokomo SDW, and the Pro 4 - and I've had the most success with the Pro 4. My only gripe is the weak aluminum front spool, which needs replacement after several race days.

Which of the shaft drive cars will easily cope with say a 9T brushless??
I'd like a nice fun car(not serious racing) with fast motor, & not have to worry about belts stretching, flipping & pullies ruined by small stones.

Tried 4.5T & 11.5T with Tamiya TB Evo 5. It works really well without issues.
