17mm hexes are used for the wheels, allowing upgrades to a wide variety of aftermarket wheels.
Gonna assume typo. They certainly look like 12mm not 17.

I agree completely man, looks like the front is low pinion and rear is high pinion the way they have it shown. It almost looks like all the mounting holes are mirrored top and bottom so it might be possible they assembled that one with axles upside down by accident.
Overall I dont think its going to knock trucks like scx10 or ascender out of the running on scale courses or anything but it might not be a bad kit to start a build with. The lower arms would look decent for few different builds like land cruiser 80 and such that had those larger bottom arms (I know they werent 4 link but still). Just think of all the awesome scaler's made years ago by robbing axles from the humble TLT lol.

Hmm. The rear may actually be upside down then. Coz if the housings are the same front to rear then the hi vs low pinion says that one of them is indeed upside down...

However, if they're front/rear specific housings then I think they've bugged up big time putting a big rock catcher at the lowest point of the axle...

Either way, odd.

I think this is the correct way it should be mounted;

I was looking at the tamiya blog page and saw this...



It looks like they inadvertently mirrored the axle cases. I really hope we are wrong and Tamiya got it right the first time. I still want it, still want to leaf it, and still want to put a clod body on it. I did see that RPP has the pre-order up as well with a price od $260 ish.

Awesome! Thank you Harry.

From what I see we can not mount leaf springs to the front axle because they would intercept with axle C's. I hope I'm wrong.

If we canít us factory holes, then weíll just need to print an a-dapter kit as Johnny Cash would say. LOL

I like that the servos is chassis mounted both horizon and vertical and I also like how you donít have to remove the entire dust cover to swap out the pinon gear.
