Considering either BCR or Tamiya this Sat, and for sure going to make Ray's last race next Sat. What about you?

This thread needs more Steve Weiss!

Any idea if it's possible to reverse the belts on this car so you can push electronics toward the center? I see Keven did it on his TC5 at IIC. I should get my stuff back tonight so I'll check it out.

I didn't realize the regionals were next weekend, but if the turnout looks anything like the nationals, Ray's track will have more entries.

I think the battery would get in the way, but not sure on that. Never thought of it, but that would be a good way to get better balance while using less weight. Ohh Canada!

Interesting idea. Not sure how close the belt will be to the packs though but might clear with a Lipo tray.

It will work, even better if you run those battery spacers on the car like I had at Vegas, the doubled up aluminum bars are exactly where the belt will run and keep the pack out of the belts. If you don't remember Adam I'll shoot you a pick, just let me know.

Come to think of it, you'd probably need to dremel out the diff pulley openings for clearance as well.

Yes you will. Now the question is, is it worth sacraficing a plate to do those mods to make it work?

Forgive me if this question is ridiculous. I am new to on-road and will be getting a 416X soon. Does anyone know what body is recommended? Also found this very cool body, would it work?
