I tried to get the Kyosho guys to let the two TC's out of the case but they weren't hearing me...LOL

Here are the pics I did snap off..

One shaft and one belt...
Both looked nicer than the pics I took...but My eye was on this at the Kyosho booth..

Hope that helps those who couldn;t make it to RCX...it was very cool this year...

Nice pictures, shame the belt car isn't the latest version of it, although it's understandable, they only had it made recently.

it looks like rear toe is adjusted by maybe a plastic insert in the toe block?

same thing came into my mind, maybe the plastic insert is similar to the ones in RRR where they use it to adjust the roll center.

car looks great guys... both the shaft and belt are well engineered cars. should be awesome when it finally comes out!

a little side note.. the shaft drive has an extremely free drivetrain. more free than the Pro4

Tim J.... i couldnt find you at the booth. ppl must have been wondering why i was looking at everyone's name tag. Joel did come by the Ko Propo booth and chatted a bit.

Same old same old motor mount on the shaft drive though. The bottom screw is right in line with the lower arm and close to its innner pivot point. A cam system or open slots might have been better in this case. Or maybe machine the motor mount so that an o-ring or snap ring retains the motor screws when the motors out of the car.

I wonder what the carpet prospects for either of these cars will be?
