It means the motor fits in from the right of the car instead of the left, like all other 4wd's, and has another gear to change the direction!!!!

Just like on the X6 so the motor armatuer rotation aids grip rather than takes it away!

It depends where the gear is to which way the spur will turn.

What a bunch of chaos and confusion! you have the official blurb saying the spur moves the same way as the tyres (wow) and cruise saying it "Sorry but the spur gear turns the opposite way of the wheels."

either the tyres are running on bearings and spin on the wheels - or I'm on crack and need to lay down.

Lets start getting some speculative drawings / diagrams of how the drive train works !

Can't the three belts have something to do with the change of drive direction?

I have heard that the motor fits in from the other side, so that the arm rotates in the direction of the wheels.

I heard you get missiles on the side to blow up the competition!

Seriously though, it sounds like it could be a very cool design, elastic band tranny's are on their way back!

i'm trying not to think about this as it is taking up too much brain cell action stuff! trying to be patient and just see what it will be like rather than speculate...anyway, surely there will be a pair of belts to take the power to the diffs front and rear(can we even take this for granted?)...stop thinking, why go for 3 belts? hope it looks tidy inside, not like the losi 4wds

just a thought ........ pulley / belt main reduction rather than the normal pinion spur gears ....... that would fit the description.

My guess: spur shaft has a gear on it, turns another gear on the 'main' layshaft with 2 pulleys on it.
But that's complicated. Belt/Pulley main reduction with a pulley-ish spur and pinion would be the other option... Don't know if that actually works though, I can't see how you'd get sufficient belt wrap on small 'pinion' pulleys.

Kyosho tested a prototype Lazer with this style transmission several years ago - before the ZX5 was released.
