    So, yeah, productivity is gonna suffer today... LOL

    So new parts - there is an idler gear and shaft, and the new motor mount has a spacer in it - so apparently there will be a gear reduction between the motor and spur? Odd, but OK.

    Also, new diff housing to go with the new steel diff. Looks like the gear is no longer part of the case, good call there.

    So @WoodiE , where you gonna drop these new models? In with the Mega 4x4? Or a new BLX4s forum? LOL

    So, thinking about this -

    Will the Kraton qualify as a 1/10 Truggy? Losi released the TEN Truggy this year, Techno just leaked their ET410 truggy, and Hobao has had their 10 TTe for years -, will the new Kraton be able to fit into this new class? Hopefully Arrma did a bit of look-ahead here, with the wheelbase and track width.

    I guess we'll have to wait and see once they have been officially announced. ;)

    I am really excited to see these new models but I have to wonder if the person in charge of naming models quit awhile ago so they just keep reusing existing names? How many DIFFERENT Sentons, Fazons, Granites, Outcasts and Kratons do we need? I mean give them different names if most of the parts aren't compatible. Maybe (hopefully) the "Kraton/Outcast" is just a placeholder and will be updated but I would doubt it.

    It must have been a pre-release glitch as now the search doesn't come up with anything but we know they are coming!!
