Will there be a recess for servo lines?

I'm trying this somewhat "inline" setup with my son's buggy. Here's what it looks like right now. I'm just hoping it doesn't take too much away from the rear bite. Moving from the rear to the front is the receiver, esc, battery, and finally the servo. The battery has about a total of 5mm to play with front or rear. I couldn't get the ESC under the rear body post mount so I put the receiver there. I also need to attach his transponder to the opposite side of the capacitors to get a little better balance.

I run the Speed passion GT 2.0 pro under the rear body post minus the fan. You just have to dremel off a few millimeters to make it fit. The capacitor gets run on the right side with the switch and the receiver lap counter gets run on the left to equalize the weight. that way you have nearly full movement of the shorty pack.

Jconcepts body fits all the chassis avail also. the front you just cut a little longer on all the +alum chassis, the plastic chassis it also works fine just flares out alittle but almost unnoticable.

Hey guys glad to see the interest. After this first batch they will be available either raw or hard coated to save you a few bucks. As long as you run a chassis protector and limit rear drop by your shocks the chassis shouldn't get ruined. I already showed a few thread members the pics. Those being people that inquired about it when purchasing skid plates. Stay tuned....Thanks
