More options included in the kit(Aluminum bulk heads etc). I think different pulleys and belts too.

Yokomo also has a DRB. These two chassis with the new TC-FD sums up the high end kits available.
You seem to forget the originator. Alex Racing's CER.

Got a chance to look at the car up close. The steering rack is really a poor design for drifting. Very short and narrow.

The bulkhead and front upper deck is secured by the steering post. To achieve any sort of angle for CS drifting you will need to separate them further out, but that's not even possible because there is no room. The drag link is tiny. There is ackerman within the stock set up. For 50/50 the stock set up will work, but for CS you would need to mod it for more angle.

Don't get me wrong it's really a nice car but, the kit does not come with the CS pulley kits. That's a bummer.

For the money get a VDF.
It's no TC-D

I used to be one of those Drifting is definitely a legitimate facet of R/C. I used to be a racer but now that I'm a drifter I feel like such a noob asking if I can race my Hornet in 2WD mod. People need to learn drifting is way beyond putting PVC pipe on your 4WD TC nowadays.

Hara did that?! I wonder if Rheinhard can do that with the VDS!

Car looks good.

Have HB lowered the layhaft on the FD a little lower than the TC-D and using a tensioner to eflect the belt over the motor - it looks like they have...

Anyone found a manual online they can link to or a shop that does parts yet?

Cheers

With the tensioner the belt has a lot of clearance over the motor now to accept larger pulley's. The car pretty much uses all the TCX parts, apart from the obvious.

The options i.e pulley kits, spindles are not released yet.
