About the servo, I think the D771 looks quite good... I saw some testings on it and it looks pretty good... Just can't figure out what happened with the stock one... So little use...
I like to keep my leads a bit longer so that I can adjust the battery position and because I also have 2 packs that have the terminals on opposite sides.
Here's a pic of my wiring.

You would probably be able to if you flipped the pack. With the adjustment range you have with the lipo to the front position you may be able to barely make the positive over to the negative (probably not though) but then when you grab the negative you would notice that its much longer and something does not compute. Pack to the back position would be the longest and the positive would not reach.

Your positive would be so much shorter though, I think you would be able to wire it that way and not be able to plug in cross polarity and still have the full adjustment range.

Anyway, many ways to skin a cat

You want bullet plugs like the ones in that picture a few pages back, or like these
http://www.smc-racing.net/index.php?...product_id=162

These will work with the low power demands of a buggy, they will work but they are not preferred.

What batteries are you planning to use? Most current packs use a 4mm bullet but some newer ones use a 5mm one.

Can someone tell if my idea is right? I mean, my idea is, with the mid motor configuration the motor is less exposed to the rocks and dust from where I can play... Would this be correct? And another thing, does the MM3 will impossible to drive on dirt? I mean, it won't have any grip? Or less grip? Will the car be stopped and won't go forward or is not like that its just come down to racing where it loses some grip?
I refresh everyone that I'm only playing around as I don't have tracks...

ekt: I have some geforce batteries, I guess is the 4mm connector...

Playing around I doubt you'll notice any performance issues with any configuration Some would claim that MM3 is undrivable on dirt but it's the only way I'll run MM. Even on dirt. Logic would dictate that in MM that the motor is more protected. For just bashing, run it any way you want.

For bashing in very loose dirt/gravel the buggy won't have a whole lot of grip regardless of the setup. It's just very light, 2wd, and the usual buggy tires won't be able to dig any further than several millimeters of any dusty surface. You'd definitely want some sort of bashing tire, or else you will go through regular racing tires like there is no tomorrow if you are spinning your tires frequently. But even though you won't have consistent traction I don't see why you would get stuck in dirt unless you are attempting to run on something like silt or sand, then you may get stuck without paddle tires.

And the mid-motor will definitely be a bit better protected from bad rear-end landings which usually scratch up and ding motors pretty quickly. But like said above, the setup won't matter a whole lot for a bashing environment. These cars were made for a hard packed track.

Got most of the new parts ordered up today, most of then are showing late february. Not going to bother with the new chassis yet as I have one of my own that still strait enough (running on turf I had some negative experiences with solid objects, went WOT into a steel post right in the center, it un pluged that battery and bent the chassis bad, the stock one is also bent but don't know how) and now have a type b for dirt use.

Thanks a lot!!

I guess I will try and see with this configuration for some time... For wheels, I got the pro line dirt hawg that every comment say they last forever... The stock rear tires lasted less than the battery pack xD
