Interesting that the basic layout is similar to how the old belt car was. 2 belts, six cells one side, electronics other, mid-motor, etc. I'm sure that's where the similarities stop, but at least not a totally new design like Losi, Ova, etc.

Compare with HB new belt:


The layout of transmission is similar, belt on 2 side, spur in middle. They both have top-opened bulkhead so we can replace diff from top, rather than disassemble bulkhead. The location of motor is about the same. HB feature spur quick-release by removing 2F, I didn't see such design on Yokomo but it still possible if spur axis is secured by E-clip, similar to 415 way. Both with belt stabilizer on top of 2F. The only thing very different from both are steering rack and steering servo mounting. I think in term of flex, Yokomo probably will be better than HB because 2F has 2 mounting point on steering rack, compare with HB's 1.

Let's see if we have more photos later today. Can't wait....

mabuchi: maybe a bit cheaper once it s on sale at rc champ and the similar..
List price at 53000 often brings it down to mid 40000 in "real world" stores..

You can only hope

looks nice,

Whats going on with the battery slots????

and the top deck looks rather thin....

Wishbones look stronger than the ones that came initially with the SD,

It has a carry handle like the xxxs :P
