Default can this mod work out?

I turned the battery tray around and cut new holes for the straps. The tray now is screwed to the chassis where usually the original battery straps go through.



The goal is, to easily change the position of the batterytray right on track, just by unlocking the 4 screws and slide it back and forth...in theory. I will have to adjust the slots a little with the dremel, itīs still too narrow. Most of the holes are already drilled. I still have to find screws that fit and have the right length.

You coul also use bigger spurgears compared to the usual battery forward mod. By turning the tray around, the distance between the spur gear and the tray gets bigger since the original slots for the battery straps get out of the way.

I hope it will all hold up. When itīs finished, Iīll give it a try at the track.

I'm going to run mine in backwards position and still dominate every race I'm in.

You should be able to get it closer to the front of the car. The front interior corner of the battery tray should be touching the pocket of the front brace.

Question?

Started building my kit last night, finished the front end and notice noise coming from the front diff while turning in reverse(smooth turning forward) not a binding or grinding sound, sounds to me more like some extra noise from the ring gear and pinion.

Maybe the gear mesh is a little tight? Should I leave it and break it in and recheck it after?

Anyone can make mistakes dropping in the gears.

From your description, I'd say run it. Check it again after a day of racing.

I didnīt want it to be all the way in the front. Itīs supposed to be in the middle of the car. From there, I can adjust it. I can either move it a little towards the front or to the rear end.. I know itīs not a perfect solution.

Wouldnīt it be nice to have a car, where you can adjust the batterytray this way? Like an easy tuning option, instead of having to drill new holes, just slide it back and forth.

Hopefully this will work with my MM2 ESC 65C for these

QTY (2)
Payment $324.98 USD

WHAT? What 2000 year you live on?
Come on... these super dope lipos can been have for: 90bucks.


Dimensions: 165x52x44mm
-Unless it's another graphene tech from another manufacter's, today there is not a single lipo on earth for RC that can compete with graphene. 900 charge cycles and under LOAD they are the only tech that holds voltage like no tomorow....!!!
Forget it have the Turnigy name, which is good on some, but this is Graphene tech.

All lipos that are not graphene are oldschool now!!



Or this for 70bucks...

Dimensions: 144x51x43mm

Those Graphene batteries won't fit in a 3.0 or 4.0 ebuggy. They fit liked a glove in my (converted) etruggy though.

edit: just to clarify...I mean the hardcase ones...they're too long.

I had the tray all the way forward just like how the 8E 4.0 is now. With the new 8E 4.0 I have the battery all the way forward in the tray as it is. Also, I have the foam block behind the battery so i can move the battery forward, middle back in the tray as well.

Also, Is there a way to lock it down besides your "slider" screws. After a few good hits it will probably start to move.

FFS, just my luck. Good thing I ordered 2 of the damn things. I keep trying to convince myself that getting back into RC was not a mistake
