The model brings these new features:

- 3D Sets BeltDrive – the new transmission solution is durable, simple, and quiet because it uses timing belts. It allows the use of both cheap brushed and powerful brushless motors.
- Easy maintenance – the front and rear axles are attached with just a few screws and can be very easily removed from the model. An integral part of the rear axle is the transmission with engine and ESC – the entire drive system can be removed from the body in one movement.
- Easy-to-disassemble – Metal nuts are now embedded for repeatedly disassembled or stressed joints. Removing the axles is now much more convenient.
- Double Wishbone suspension – independently suspended front axle wheels with sophisticated wheel geometry. The axle can be mounted in 3 different height positions and the mounting of the shock absorbers can also be adapted. The axle uses a system of fully printed 3D Sets ball joints and is optimized for higher impact resistance.
- The rear swing axle uses an innovative way of transmitting driving force by means of a swinging pulley, is adjustable to 3 height positions and dampers of various lengths can be used.
- Truly functional 3D printed door handles – not for show, but prevent the door from opening while driving. Safety first!
- The protective roll cage in the interior complements the sporty character of the Buggy, but it also really reinforces the model’s body.
- Preparation for the functional lights – the lights have prepared cavities for LED diodes, cable glands are prepared in the model.
- Possibility to install the G-T Engine Sound System sound module – selection from 58 engine sounds. The module has a reserved space behind the front seats.
- Highly detailed model of the engine – the engine covers the moving parts of the gearbox and it is possible to experiment with color by changing the filament during printing.
- Innovative battery box with easy opening with rotary locks, easily accessible from the bottom of the model.
- Many new details – e.g. realistic emboss on the inner parts of bodywork, fuel tank in the trunk, and more.
