check out how the alex arms are placed on the chassis. the sanyo 3300 seem to be the next big thing, just like those two speed transmittions in electrics.

Hi all, I just returned myself from the ( small r/c show) God it was bad! I never saw so few r/c companies there! Anyways besides the M8 3rd edition with blue light and with backlighting and a new high reponce switing and 1100battey pack its the same system.

I took a tons of pictures, but what was coolest is the 2 speed from for the baracuda! WOW!

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Nothing new about two speed gearboxes.

Schumacher have had it for years too on their electric cars, as have Yokomo. In fact they now have a 3 speed on their 1/10th IC car.

Of course International race rules don't allow multi speed gearboxes.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Asd Johnbull mentioned, 2 speeds in electric racing are illegal so i am not sure why they have developed it? Rick

O and the new Tamiya TB03 looks a very nice kit, it has got plastic diffs at last so that shud lighten the drive train a lot. I also like the twin carbon deck chassis and the new TA04 wishbones on it, all this shud make the car work and drive 10* better. Rick

Saw alot of cool stuff, but i hope some of the ( no names ) companies gets their BEEP!!!!!!!!!! together and return to the show. Its all about a family outing then making money. Oh well those greedy companies will learn the hard way .

Sounds like Sanwa is getting scared that 3PK will take all the action away from them....they had a chance to put the backlight on the unit with the M8SS but did not! Understand KO are working on a backlight unit too?

I am mad because I just got the M8 SS. The most annoying thing is that only M8 did not change their receiver like other companies. Is it that M8 is already in high response from all this generation?

I like the 3PK's feel. It is very balance and comfortable.
