The front drive system, which we got the first view of at the DHI Cup, uses steel balls to provide forward drive between the drive cup and front drive shaft yet wont bind under suspension compression. The car is set to be released in May.





Red R/C


Well, Kyosho has kinda been dead from the electric on road scene. Will this car bring them back?

Discuss.

With that setup, it looks as though they could have made the chassis plate 6 to 10 millimeters narrower even. Pretty exciting design...

It looks like there are more screws in the top deck alone than I have in my whole car.

Drivetrain is flipped in relation to other cars. This moves the electronics inward, and the battery outward. You can do this on a 416 if you run the diffs in the high position. Don't know about the other cars...
