Jason, your pics of the car shows the battery slots not beveled, is that what you chose to do or was this one missed?

Jason wrote that there will be a battery "tray" so you can have the batteries forward or back on the chassis.

Take onother look, if you look real close they are beveled. It's hard to see because most of the pics only show the ends of the slots which are not.

no 'tray' it's an 'I' shaped peice that holds the batteries in place on the chassis.

we decided to go with a larger battery slot to save cost.with the addition of the expensive components i added,it took me over budget.the edges of the cell slots will only require a slight edge break to fit the cells.it goes very easily and quickly.the car is coming with a locator plate that is adjustable to locate the cells.

the cell slots on the origional prototype(in the pic) are beveled.the change was made a few days ago after checking my costs.this is the only thing that was cut out.everything else is still the same.

Jason, is there going to be a spur gear included with this car? If so, can you specify what brand, type, pitch, gear count, etc? I like to carry a spare spur. Thanks ahead of time.

OK, I stand corrected but in a good way...
PERSONAL OPINION FOLLOWS>>>>>
Adding a spur gear to the kit may not be a good idea. Some people use 48 or 64 pitch and then there the different types of pionions ( Tamiya and AE use standard/metric or something like that... ).

Things that may be nice to add to the kit: couple of extra screws and washers, springs, cheat sheet like which body would work best for carpet/asphalt/etc and BMI decals of course...

I hate answering for someone, but if memory serves me right..
It will be a 88t 64p as it is best for all motor combo's...
I use the RW gears and Kimbrough, but PRS are good as well.
But with the 88T I am able to hit just about any rollout I so choose even with 13.5 I was at 55mm Saturday and plenty of room to go either way.
So yea a 88T is perfect if you ask me......

I only know one person who runs 48p in 12th scale and thats cause they are just plain weird...LOL I am just playing...It really won't matter which gear he includes if you already own a 12th scale than you already have spare spurs....Am I right? LOL

the locator plate is adjustable and allows for forward and aft adjustment.this is a very nice tuning option.

awww I had hoped we talked you into otherwise I always end up sanding off the edges uneven so the batts don't sit the way I'd like them to. But that's ok...not gonna stop me from buying one soon as my LHS gets them in!
