Thus the reason to use dry lube and air. Not a deal breaker.

Anything that looks like a flower should require wet lube

Some really nice design ideas, it looks like the topdeck will be a pita to take out as it runs under the toplinks, no quick diff access then. Also the adjusting the spur/pinion mesh looks it's done by moving the motor mount on the layshaft mount like an Mi4 but the screw holes are beside each other, not one top and one bottom to distribute the load better.

i really don't think they will get much business in the US....perhaps in other parts of the world they will do fine.
after the terrible products they released and the terrible effort to help most in the States...they pretty much lost all positive reputation.

sorry LiteModz...you did it to yourselves.

This isn't by far the first attempt at a rack & pinion steering system. Believe it or not, Tamiya had rack & pinion steering in the Bigwig back in the 80's.

If you look closely at the pictures there are vertical holes through the shock mount supports, so you can get easy access to the allen heads on the very end screws. An interesting design but is it any better than just using separate shock mount supports, I guess you would have to check if they were still straight after a big crash.

The production version will likely still have the Tamiya/Xray/Schumacher parts, got to be cheaper than making their own moulds if they aren't going into mass production.
