Loving the Losi, I mean Durango shocks
If that is indeed a hydraulic brake I can't see that bit being very popular, especially considering mechanical brakes on all the buggies I've tried, most I've loosened off more than tightened.. I bet it adds a fair chunk of weight as well.
Look forward to see it in person so as I think it's a very "conceptual" buggy and will pave the way for some of the future buggies we will see in the market, very cutting edge one might say!
Its only a game, why you heff to be mad?
Master of puppets
Looking at the pre-production parts for it, there is definitely something funky going on with the center differential mount and braking system. It appears to be machined out to accept a traditional cam type brake system but the holes on the outside of the diff mount suggest that something else is mounted, who knows!
Hopefully we will see some photos of a built car at the Nuremberg Toy Fair.
I am interested in what appears to be a centrally mounted fuel tank? Will it have gaps in the middle for the centre-front drive shaft? After all, the CAD drawings make it look super narrow.
Serpent must be worried...
Looking at that centre diff holder again, the holes do not look too dissimilar to the ones on the inside of the hydralic brakes on my mountain bike.
I am now convinced there will be hydraulic brakes. If this is the case, it isnt just the power they offer, but more so the "feel" as they would be a lot easier to progressively apply and may not be as grabby.
Also, looking at the CAD drawings, it looks like there are either some serious angles with rear-centre-front driveshafts or they have found another LOSI type solution... Mmm....

I want one!
That mean we'll be seeing an actual shop price of just over 400?
