HoBao DC-1 4X4 FIRST LOOK [VIDEO]

OK, not a lot to see here yet as far as official photos go, but there are detail shots in the video (which are also screen grabbed below). Says HoBao, via Facebook:

# World’s first DC-1 sneak peak 
# scaled trail truck with high/low speed
# trail crawler with multiple link bar option
# we dare to be different. 
# We will be driving into the wild in the upcoming 2nd video.

Though it’s not a Defender, we’re getting a strong Traxxas TRX-4 vibe off the body assembly and the way the fender wells and chassis extensions are fitted, but HoBao adds clear windows and an interior to change things up.

As for chassis features, You can also spot a shift servo, so expect a 2-speed. The other details look good, with nice shocks, a 4-link rear end, and Panhard-bar front end with chassis-mounted servo–all the stuff expected of a modern trail truck. Battery can be mounted inline or transverse. And man, that shaft between the transmission and transfer case–ya think it’s thick enough?
