I recently picked up a used Kyosho 4x4 JSDGF L.A.V. based on the Half-8(1/16) Mini Inferno chassis and was quite smitten by it, so decided to do a 4x4 built and settle on the MetalOrigin PUMA 8x8. Arrived yesterday and quite the packaging. Last pic is the RC kit (540 motor, speakers, turret rotation unit and the Stummel add-on kit). Will have a Clark board as MFU but if there is enough space maybe an IBU3. I don't think the sound files are available for either, only on Elmod at this point and not going to go there.........

Single drive motor? Check, hence the huge 540.
How does it steer all 8? Multiple servos or one really big one?
Hoe big is that speaker? Looks decent.

Yup single drive motor, one 15g servo and lots and lots of linkages for the 8 wheel steering. Quite the piece of mechanical artwork. Speaker is tiny as you can see smaller than the 540, but looks very nice.

Is it all plastic? Or any metal other than suspension/drive?

N/M just looked it up... Most lower half is metal... The steering arms look so clunky in size compared to the suspension... Will be nice to see however!
