With this inline mod wouldn't it be better to have esc up front and battery all the way back? If you have a shorty servo it will fit. It wouldn't work that way with a normal size servo.

Good to get positive feedback regarding durability. Who has experience in competition against RB6 or TLR22v2 or TeamC TM2v2 on carpet / astro tracks?

if you cut the waterfall for the battery to go back to the motor there looks to be room with a normal servo.

I have normal sized servo in standard configuration (with tekin rs gen 2 & Futaba 614fs rx). I didn't even consider it a tight fit. ?

That said, I like the idea of the inline setup, but as the guy above commented, seems like the battery running closest to the motor would be more ideal for weigh distribution in the mid-motor car.

Thats exactly what I was thinking. Seems to me like the best way to go about running a shorty pack inline.

I'm waiting on new wire, then I'll try esc up front. Ran it outdoors today but the track was bone dry. More runs Wednesday night.

Mark will your esc fit the other way? your motor wires could be almost cut in half if you did that. And would make no difference in your battery leads.

Anyone try this with a R10 esc yet?

That's what I was thinking. Then if you don't like how it handles you can just flip the battery sideways like before with no re wiring or re locating everything

How did you like it compared to the normal setup?

Most of the guys that are replacing plastics are trying the hard composite stuff. From what I know these pieces have less flex than the standard plastics. So with that said they have a greater chance of snapping in wrecks. From what I heard from some of the guys running them is that it allows for the suspension and all the mechanical parts to do their job rather than some of it being soaked up in flex. I personally have only ran the stock plastics and setup and had a few rough tumbles due to high speed traction rolls coming off the straight into a table jump. The worst that has happened was a bent turnbuckle. I am still using the stock ones which are not very durable. Most guys switch over to the lunsford ones (still waiting for backorder).

I have RB6 in mid, will say it turns way better then my B5m. I'm still working on set up to get that turn in that I like.

Are you using stock setup with a small pad between battery and waterfall brace?
