the plastic trans could be a great option for my build, will you tell us the final drive? and if it will be available separately?

Universals in lieu of cvdís Iím hoping. With the recent reveal of the universal Iím thinking they will be standard issue.

I like this trans/transfer case combo. Much more scale having the front driveshaft off set from the rear. Nice work! Will this trans accept the rc4wd V8?

Nice!

Plus the putting the pumpkin on the other side may well interfere with the panhard bar. It's something I will look at as an option later...
Would be nice option.

Agreed.

Why? CVDs have been more durable ime, plus rebuildable when they get sloppy at the pins.

It gets better every time I see a new picture! Looking forward to it more than any other release at this point. Scale is cool, but it's getting stale. This looks to be some new life.

Universals get more angle and are stronger than Cvds imo.

Could the new transmission be bolted to a SCX10.2 chassis without too much modifications?

No. This new transmission has better CoG so the front bearings in a different place. So it doesn't fit my old rc4wd V8 motor mount.

I would hope so!

If not something will be on Shapeways and probably Thingiverse in no time.

There is a bunch of options from 3d printed but I would really like to see something nicer in either molded plastic or aluminum. Alot of the 3d printed one are rough except for the ones Mr Commad makes. Shapeways would be really expensive for something like this with not great finish for something as detailed as an engine.

I agree on all counts, but a mold for the scale engine would be a big investment and surely add cost. I hope SSD releases an add on engine though.

yeah I'd have no issues paying $180 for an aluminum engine like the rc4wd but maybe an LS? These 3d printed engines go for $100 on average.

From what Im seeing, it looks great!😮

I hadnít even looked at a crawler in 6+ years. Saw the GEN8, that got me interested again. I have a RC4WD TF2 Marlin Crawler being delivered today, Iíve put a down payment on the Element Enduro, and now SSD drops this!🥴

Might be Christmas before I even look at picking up a UMG10 or TRX4 Sport Kit.

What a great time to get back into crawling!👍🏼
