No, only the Tamiya M03/5 (and Xevo conversion kit), and the HPI Switch are FWD. All other Mini-sized cars are 4wd or direct drive like a 12th pan car.

Having said that, the Sabre FD is 10th touring sized. Does anyone else remember TOP announcing a 4WD Mini chassis? I can't remember if it was a scaled down Photon or Scythe though.

The manufacturers are developing 2WD M cars just because are becoming popular in asia zone.
In our championship, 2WD M class could attract more new guys than any other classes, controversially these classes are becoming smaller round by round.

About the Top, if it said the new 4WD, probably could be a Mini Photon.
In fact they have already a Mini Scythe.

About time someone bought out a decent 1/10 FWD kit (excluding the minis of course).

Will be good to see how it compares to the king of FWDs, the elusive Yokomo YR-F2.

TOP is a Chinese company. It would being interesting to know why they chose to name their company Tokyo Option Parts.

You are misinformed. T.O.P. is a partnership between a Hong Kong Manufacturing Company and a Japanese Hobby Company. They operate under the name Tokyo hobbies Optional Parts for their RC products
