Hmmm i wonder how their kit will compare to Tamiya's? I like the metal turret and what looks like a a functional engine hatch probably where the ON/OFF switch, smoke and volume controls are. 

If they made JS3 id buy it lol

This might be a sign of things to come. Because the smoker and on/off is mounted to the upper, the upper is actually hinged at the back so you can open up for battrery and not have to remove the wiring for on/off and the smoker........

Those "scissor" bars for upper/lower are pretty "meh"..., Rather just have a single Prop Bar or similar than the dual lift arms. Plus how does the front secure?

Its kinda of clever. They use the hinge for the engine cover at the back to double as the hinge for the upper, and then a latch type lock in the front. I have to seriously consider waiting for this or continue with the Tamiya that I have sitting on my to-do bench.

Those two small plastic hinges takes all the mass of the upper? Cringe... Hope they never run into something or drop into our river at KW Smile.

I would have used a 'J' hinge internally that worked on the lower inner hull wall.

Spring is a not a bad thing if it is done properly. It also allows more space inside the tank as well.

Not too concerned regarding the coil spring "torsion" arms. It will be the mass of that lower hull that concerns me more... Ugh. All metal lower (sprockets, idlers, roadwheels, tracks, arms, hull) means super heavy on the drivetrain.

Is it geared as a standard speed, or a low speed/high torque? (3:1 vs 4:1)? Would need to be offered with steel gearboxes obviously...
