I've read in this thread that the Fantom 5400 fits in the TypeR just fine. I've also read that the Thunderpower 5400 and the Fantom 5400 are the same battery so I assume the Thunderpower 5400 will fit just fine also. Has anyone used the TP 5400 in the Type R?

Thanks in advance.

Yes. I had a speed passion 3600kv and it was way too big.

If you stick with the 540 sized sensored brushless motors (not 550 shortcourse size), all of them will fit. In some instances, big spur and big pinion, the motor may contact the inner-left hingepin block. However, you can get to all FDRs using spurs and pinions which prevent that contact.

With rubber and a well balanced car - yes. I had to switch to lightweight bodies which break all the time. I am going to look at better solutions.

I'm at 1369g, with not exactly light electrics (full size servo, Mamba speedo, and a seperate BEC circuit unit), although that is with a full painted LWT speed 6 (and reinforcing frames inside). Steve's at 1357g, with single colour shell, and 25odd grams of lead on the car...

Our BRCA limit is 1350g, so reaching a 1425g weight limit really shouldn't be an issue.

Ed, do you have any overhead photos of your setup? I know your running the MMP from reading the MMP thread and this one. I plan on getting the MMP and just wanted an idea on how I can layout and wire my electronics. Thanks Ed.

I'm running regular weight bodies, and have no issues reaching 1427g or so. Can is balanced 50/50 front/rear left/right. I think batteries that are used have a big part to play in getting the weight down. I'm running EP5200s.

you should list the batteries you are running, thunderpower cells are a good bit heavier than IB's and others.
