Default Interesting...

to say the least. Given it may not yet be to production spec, but the chassis plate, shock towers, and upper brace looks like it's 1-2mm thick. I'm just not sure, it just doesn't seem like a Losi. It could be a great step forward from the Pro 3, but it just don't interest me. I hate to disappoint my other favorite company. I will say it's balanced. If they make some new shocks, I hope they will fit on my XXX-S.

It's 3mm C/F(I think that's what he said). But you guys havn't picked up on any of the really unique features yet.

The short arms will not only be stronger, but will generate more grip through the suspension. Anyone notice the balljoint moulded into a piece that is bolted to the inner end of the front arms? Is this the sway bar mount?

I like the way the belt tension is adjusted with the eccentric cams, similar to the Xray and Tamiya.

My only concern is that as the diff is outside the outdrive bearings, there will be a lot of stress on the diff-side bearing, but it might only be minimal, depending upon belt tension, size of bearing etc.

I hope they dont enclose the drivetrain with one of their moulded chassis' - it would look damn ugly

looks like you can rotate the gray "outdrive holders" to raise or lower something much like pan cars.

rotating the gray deals must be how you adjust the belt tension.

No, you rotate the white section inside the grey housing.

Can anyone else see two sets of droop screws in the front arms? One at the rear of each arm, and another one in that plastic part I mentioned before?

Default I hope they go with a....

molded chassis. They could perhaps get rid of the upper braces if they made a tunnel chassis. It's just not a Losi without the tub. Plus, I like having a care free belted drive, but that's me. One thing I don't like is having the belts drag on the chassis.

dude,
the housing is black, the belt tensioner is gray, and the pully is white.
