With the exception of the spur gear, which is protected by a dual-pad slipper clutch, all the BOM’S gears are metal. Also metal: the Cv-style joints on the telescoping plastic center shafts, so the BOM’S drivetrain should prove rugged. The transmission design is unique; the lower skidplate is actually part of the gearbox, and dual output gears position the center shafts nearly parallel with the chassis rails, so the CV joints don’t have to work as hard. Also clever: The front and rear shafts are counter-rotating, which reduces torque twist.
The output gears for the driveshafts mesh, so the shafts counter-rotate. This reduces torque twist. Gmade’s chunky MT1094 tires get glued onto onepiece wheels.
78 The complex cage and fuel cell detailing looks good, and a spare time mount is built in. The body also has an injection-molded, Led-ready chrome grille.
The transmission sits deeply between the frame rails to keep the center of gravity low. You’ll find a full set of metal gears inside.
