Even if it was just equal to the 201/T-258 it would be an excellent bike.
I run the old OTO think its the same T-258 I have 2 of them that I run every day, its just got to be the best 1/8 bike out there, so fast and smooth and tough, never broken anything, the only trouble is the wear rate on the chain and sprockets but still like it better than a belt drive. I notice the new bike has bigger head stock bearings this has got to be so much better than the small 8x4x3 mm ones they use now, I was using a new set every week as one crash and they would be finished and would really mess up the handling, I now use ceramic ones and they are fine. So as you say if it was just equal to the old bike it will be nice and the larger head bearings will help out the only bad designed part of the T-258, not sure about the belt set up, I have the SB5 and hate the slipping belt
