Wildcerry: What made you decide to put the esc in back instead of in front of the battery?

Is it easy to switch back and forth in between rear motor and mid motor?

No, dremel the nut sharp edges till they fit in the bushing easily. It doesn't take much. I'm sure Kelly will be doing this to them soon but first run stuff...

I have both cars built and running, I switch between the two all the time. I take both cars to the track, if the Mid motor car starts to fade I run the Rear motor car. Both cars drive the same but different under different conditions...if that makes sense.

1.6/1.6
30/27.5
2limiters/2limiters

How does it drive? I think I'm about the same with green fronts and white rears. a few of us here in Michigan spent about nine hours at the track getting out buggies to work.

I believe he meant switching (changing) the car itself from mid to rear.

Basically, it's completely disassembling a car, and then completely reassembling a car. If that's easy, then yes. If that's not easy, then no.

I'm at 1580, stock, with an RS Pro and way too much wire and a portly, old Airtronics 94358. The 13.5 in this car is just HUMMIN
