Yes, they're still made, but typically they're the cheap Tamiya's etc.

The shaft drive Awesomatix was a work of art. But each time they went to a new track they had no idea how it would behave so...

Based on running Xray which is why I can't help with motor position.

People were simply responding to why it's been jokingly called a T4 BD9.

I remember when people (Awesomatix drivers) were telling us that shaft drive was the future. That didn't last did it :lol:

Think you'll find people sarcastically calling it a T4 BD9 is due to the number of parts they copied (and I mean almost identical) in their newest kit.

I second checking what everyone else runs at your track.
I've owned CRC and found their cars to break too easily, it was almost a coin flip to see if I finished a run.
Now run Xray and have only...

For stock 600-1000 seems about right.
When i first ran it I used 3k and it made the car too safe.
Took advice and dropped it down to 1k and immediately had better entry steering

The motor mount will still be mounted along the centre line (like all the TC's) So the motor position hasn't changed.
It just means you end up having to run a dog legged topdeck

No, that just changes the position of the pinion on the motor shaft.

To answer the original question...

A single belt design is less efficient as the belt has to 'flex' in both directions.
If it was a better design, everyone would be using instead of having moved...

Don't worry, after running a few different cars, they'll realise why Xray's are better ;)

We've had quite a few drivers in the UK switch from Xray, but eventually most have come back.

We could also argue that a car being 90% new means they didn't 'get it right' last time ;-)

I have a friend who's gotten so frustrated with his BD8 he's gone back to Tamiya.

If they have enough stock, wait for the '19 to see what the differences are.
You may even find that the '18 gets even cheaper.

No, they're made up drivel to market to gullible racers who think those packs will miraculously give them more power.

I can't think of any class where after one run the voltage would drop as low as 3.6V per cell apart from /12 open Mod perhaps, and even then it's rarely

Early lipo's had lower C ratings and lower capacities than we have currently, but their performance was definitely worse as well.

Battery C ratings are marketing BS.
Early on (when RC lipo's first came in) the C ratings were probably closer to being accurate, but ever since it's been an 'arms race' by resellers to persuade the...

That's not IFMAR's fault though.
If drivers and teams won't go that's down to their cowardice.
