don't forget the RS4MTs
*Kyosho Alpha2 series
Tamiya TT01s (spinoffs of TB01s)
excelhobby (copy combination of TC3, TB01, and TT01)
and any other people who has not copied Tamiya TB series and TC3 (except TB evo III, of course).
Things that I heard in the rumor mills:
*Team Losi will follow suit with the XXXX-S touring car
*so is kyosho
*so is Team Schumacer
*so is Team Kyosho's new 4WD Off Road racing machine to fight XXX-4 (yeap..shaft driven)

Who is the proudest of them all? Tamiya of course. They'd been preaching shaft driven since way back when and nobody believed them....except now

Kyosho.... Yes

Schumacher and Losi.............. not a chance.

Losi could have built a shaft car, but decided on the belt..... and they have a much more efficient system..... same ith Schumacher!!!!!!!!

I'm talking about the next round. If you have not notice the short comings of the current single belt system of Losi, you might want to ask those team drivers who got beaten everyday by TC3s...

I'm just kind of curious... what are those "short comings of the current single belt system of Losi"? All I can see in it is that,

1) It's smooth
2) It's effecient

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't remember seeing many Losi's being out accelerated or anything by TC3's. Some were, some weren't.

The Losi single belt tends to slip especially under braking. I don't know of any other short comings of the belt system itself.

As for shaft drive you can add the following to the list,
Smartech
Venom Racing VR01 Chassis
