All this makes perfect sense. From a Mfr standpoint. Gear boxes, electronics, detail parts, some may be made or used by HL and possibly others and are a Type Standard, so why reinvent the wheel. IMHO this is where Hooben blew it with their Fury EZ8. Everything is their own design.
The one thing I think is a huge deal on this tank is the wheels for now appear to be plastic rolling on plastic axles. That is a death sentence in a short amount of time if you drive it in dirt alot. They need to add in a brass busing like taigen did on their first model sherman or install bearings on the wheels to stop the plastic to plastic wear that will destroy the axle and make the hole in the wheel bigger.
I had to replace the wheels and axles on my HL sherman as I drove them to death.
