This guy lists at as a Henglong but it clearly has a metal tub and chassis like Tamiya.
I don't know anything about this thing, but the tracks alone are impressive as well as the high price tag

That's interesting! He also has a ton of other HL & Mato stuff on his eBay store as well.

Those gearboxes look similar to something Carson DKLM has been teasing a bit on....

We're already discussing this seller and this gearbox in this thread http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/rc-t...-1-16-a-2.html. Take a look. It is a very interesting gearbox in my opinion.

That tank looks insane and very well made. It is probably the HL plastic top and turret. I want one !

I KNOW!!! What a beaut!

It's on my bucket list as well as the Chally II. But... I am knee deep in Shermans right now, plus other projects too.

Just bought a set of Mato 4.0 gearboxes from this seller. They're in China, but seem to have good communications. Even followed when the shipping was taking a little while to try alay any concerns I had. Hope to have the gearboxes in a week or so.

Those low profile boxes are interesting but I would sty away from the cog belt driven one. Ive had experience with that elsewhere.

If you go to DKLM website, the gearboxes and full lower hull are there for the Leo. The gearboxes are 68 dollars if you purchase them alone. Complete lower hull with all running gear is listed at 400. I personally like the design of the ETO gearboxes better, as these are quite complex in design and have yet to be proven.
