I think that other forum might be a crack smoking forum?

No, honestly!
In the (Austrian?) forum www.offroad-cult.org somebody who claimed to have seen the Cat and talked to the Schumacher guys at the Toy Fair mentioned that the motor was "in the rear" ; maybe it just means that it is behind the battery...

He also claimed that the chassis was a modular type and that no option parts whatsoever were needed...

? One-way in the box ?

from the pics, the motor looks to be in the same place as the 501X, or they have just put a misleading bodyshell on it.

The body shell seen in the siloette pics is the one currently running on the car.

So did we rule out the same design as the Team Magic E4 or is that still a possible config? 3 belts, rear motor, the 4x2 pack doesn't seem right but stick would.

if it's spinning the same way as the wheels: indeed.

I do wonder what a 2.2:1 internal ratio is good for...

Well the procats had the motor in the rear, and those cars won the major events, so lets hope they design another good car. Pity they havent posted a picture, as if they did I might have bought it if it looked the business, but as they havent and decided to do a stupid marketing tactic I have gone and bought something else.

I think Schumacher always like to play this "secret tricks".........still remember at the time of the TopCat released........same story........using a cloth to cover up almost 80% of the car........can see the rear part only..............keep secret always......
