Nice design Diggity.
I haven't ran or converted to lipo' yet, so I can ask what may be a ignorant questions, but, would if of been possible to make the tray adjustable like the old Mi2 trays were? Just a thought. Might make it nice to be able to move the weight in or out.
I also recieved my caster blocks today, they look great, wish I would of waited to possibly order the tray at the same time.

Looks like we'll be able to use Verndog's weight plate along with the Diggity lipo holder. Just put a washer or two under the mount holes of the holder and that should be enough clearance. It shouldnt affect clearance between the lipo and top deck as your are just raising the lipo holder.

Better yet, how about a stainless steel lipo holder in the same shape, maybe a little thicker and hit 2 birds with 1 stone.

Now, if there was only a way to get everything as a complete combo packages...........

What pinion and spur gear are you using to get to 5.0 FDR?

Also this may be a noob question but what does going up to 5.1 do for the power output compared to going to 4.9?

I think that my car is completed geared wrong. I have a 124/31 in their right now for a 8.0 FDR. I run 10.5 w/ lipos on rubber tires on a smaller carpet track.

You will not be able to make the holder tall enough to make up all the weight to balance. Plus the 2 best places to weight are #1, on the chassis and in the slots, #2 outside edge of chassis (less to balance), #3 inside chassis (more to balance)...#4 top of battery...worst possible solution...top heavy.

We rolled out at around 39mm/1.55 in for foam tires at the novak race in 10.5. You could probably go a bit higher on asphalt, due to rolling resistance.

ok after searching the thread for an answer to my issue last night I think I found a consistent answer here but still need to ask again... hub bearings. Manual says 6x10x4 but here people are saying it is a misprint and have been using 6x10x3's. Hobbyshop had 6x10x3's but they were NOT the same size as the bearing I took out of the car... sure looked like 6x10x4's comparing it to the 3's. Anyhow just wanted to double check to make sure the 6x10x3's are the right ones and/or will work without any shimming.

Next question is if I have the O rings on the top deck how much do I tighten them down?

Man I hope I get this car all figured out soon! First night out it was awesome.. very close to making me a good driver! Stable and turned on a dime... certainly more than I'm used to. Next time out it was as bad as it was good the first night .. nearly undriveable! It wouldn't turn at any sort of speed and when I got nearly stopped it would twitch like a 1/12 scale. I'll get it figured out eventually but hopefully that's sooner than later.

I've seen some guys smash the orings down pretty good. That being said, on my car they bulge out from under the washer. I think you want more flex than movement.

This one was run at the Novak race under high bite conditions. A little tweaking is probably required if your conditions are not the same.
