Default X-Ray Shaft Drive TC

Title of this post probably got your attention eh?

I hope this gets the attention of the X-Ray staff and they build a shaft drive 10th scale TC.

I own a TC3 with a BMI chassis conversion kit, I like the car BUT I hate the lack luster parts fit that makes working on the car a pain.

X-Ray is by far the best when it comes to the "parts fitting together" department. I'm not a fan of belt driven TC's, so if X-Ray built a shaft drive TC I would buy it in a heart beat!!

Build it and they will come

Isn't funny how a couple years ago it was all about the shafties and now it seems like more and more people are going back to belts. I don't want to start a shaft vs. belt debate, that's been beat to death. But I just thought it was interesting.

Shafts and belts have been overdone. Let's get a nice gearbox running the length of the chassis?

If you want a Shaft drive Get a TC4 or a Yok or a Tamiya.... You want belt, go Xray, Losi....

I'd like to See Xray come out with a shaft car as well...and have common parts between it and the belt cars.....just a diferent means of getting the power to the diffs....

With the build and design quality of Xray Ihave no doubts that they'd be able to get it right...

Shaft drive X-Ray...DIY!

On the XRay forums theres a center-battery chassis XRay someone made. I also noticed the Pro3.5 Special being discussed on the proto thread. Why doesn't someone make one themselves?

I'd be curious to see how it'd work...ie: TC4 Drivetrain & XRay suspension You could make it ultra balenced with 4 cells on one side and two on the other. It'd probably end up really fast in the hands of a capible driver

No shafts, belts, chain or diffs. A motor on each wheel plugged to an ESC that gives antilock brakes and traction control.
