The Device under reverse engineering I've sent to the platform as a base model, was the Straight Pipe Lines model, because the model we are aiming to reverse, is really hard to find, but very small differences, so we doubled checked few control sizes, and all good.
As said somewhere above, bolt pattern is different, but we've got picked the X100 original measurements (tanks deuce2000 )
And not only that, there is a breathing channel serving as a key pattern for black cover, which actually allow to install the 4.2 turbo X100 cover over this aluminium chassis , but not the other version over X100 4.2

We started the CAD drawings on Scan mesh, and mean while we are doing the making of video for the steps.
Some updates about the kit to be delivered to you along with the 83mm housing:

-2 steel shafts for motor centering- assembled
-1 steel shaft for middle dented wheel mechanism - assembled
-2 coolant ducts- chromed bronze ducts- either pressed or on tread- in the picture we made the tread version allready (I will need some measurements for the angle to send to the platform developers)
-The butterfly 83mm
-1 Main axle shaft adapter.(still in discussion if they will provide the assembled axle with bearings, or to let buyers to do it. The Reason is the risk of voiding service reliability by the end users who will not have enough tools or skills to install the butterfly or bearings in the correct position )
-1 set of screws for butterfly (there are not tread sealed are originally pressed on both sides- so impossible to save, but as Tjoe said , can be removed is just needed one side drill, will be available in the video)

Hello everyone!
I have just returned from my honeymoon after more than a month of absence!
I am pleased that my research of someone who can make us a bigger TB is giving the results I hoped for!
After the useless words of Cam-Efi, now our friend Cristian (found by me on facebook) is working on this thing and I'm glad!

I really hope that soon we will see the results!
