Will show more next week. If you look carefully there are some obvious improvements shown.
Front axle offset and is half nylon, half aluminium.

What else can you see ?

Also this was the least interesting image from the bunch ;)

C channel rails. Double sheer panhard mount. CMS. Metal knuckles. I’m assuming the new Uni’s too!

Come on man, give us a couple more shots! We are literally itching to give you our money, donít make us wait/do this whole tease thing. Thatís such an Axial/Horizon move.

Itís awesome to have strong links, your great new shocks, axle housings, hopefully universal (not CVD) front axle shafts, and I am really hoping for cantilever suspension or something in the rear to allow for a drop bed. Maybe even a kit to change out later?

PS - if my taunt above didnít work (totally sarcastic by the way), then youíve got some serious self control! But seriously, show us the goods.

Looks like he figured out that moving the servo forward also eliminates the panhard/servo horn conflict that plagues the SCX2. Ugh I canít wait.

The servo is pushed forward & perpendicular to the rails. So something interesting between the shock hoops.

I wonder if that’s going to allow for a forward motor mount?

Perhaps a forward low pro battery tray similar to the Samix setup.

Edit* SSD are you all on Instagram or FB?

No we don't have social media pages. As we don't retail we leave that stuff to our main dealers/distributor (RPP, Amain).

313mm in the box. We already sell a 305mm conversion: http://ssd-rc.com/305mm-wheelbase-co...-scx10-ii.html

The chassis is capable of 324mm (TRX4 Land Rover) so will probably make some links to support this.

Nice teaser! I'm liking what I'm seeing so far!

Too many cool new rigs to pick from! This may end up being a very expensive year!
