OK. Glad you have it all worked out

What is a mid motor conversion designed to do as far as handling, and what kind of tracks dose it work best for.Also what are pros and cons with running the rear moter setup or the mid moter set up.
Thanks John.

Mid motor puts all/most of the mass within the wheelbase greatly reducing the pendulum effect that you experience in turns with a rear motor. However, by shifting the balance more towards the front of the car you are reducing weight on the back tires and reducing their traction. You will generally experience more push with the front end because the extra weight on the front makes it harder for that end of the car to change direction. That being said mid motor IME is more predictable and feels more balanced. They work best on higher grip tracks where the high coefficient of friction between the tires and the track surface makes up for the lack of weight on the rear tires and the extra weight on the front tires. A higher average speed (=faster laps) is what you're after in racing and the mid motor can give you that advantage if you drive it correctly and if the surface/setup works with MM.

I think some don't understand that you can't just swap the motor position and expect it to work. Mid motor requires a completely different setup in order to maximize weight transfer.

Do one of these:
I have yet to test it but you get a fair bit more weight to the rear

anyone else besides me have problems getting all the wiring tucked away on a MM setup? I cannot run a fan on my ESC because it pushes the body up on that side, and just the wires push it up a little (cured with velcro on the sides of the chassis)

Depends on what esc and body you are using. I have managed to get in most escs with a change in wire position

THere are low profile fans (7mm) you can get if that helps

Seem to be a lot of mixed reviews on the RDRP plate. I got cold feet and decided to stick with the Durango aluminum plate.

Can you post a pic of your wiring? I'm using a jconcepts finnisher and a TrakPower MS-1.

What speedo do you have? I would think putting it on the other side would lead to cleaner wiring. I guess it just really depends on the angle that's created.
