Moot : For a normal Tamiya type 540 2xvent Johnson motor, I used from 47-51mm rollout ... depending on track. Using 60T(48P) spur & from 36T-40T(48P) on Jaco Nitro Shoes foams. Further 60wt-front&50wt-rear oil with AE red-front&AE gold-rear springs. Remember that especially with stock your drive-train has to be 200% effiecient as every little part has an influence. If you are looking at hop-ups, definitely consider the Square TI input shafts; carbon drive shaft; ceramic bearings (I like ACER). Use a piece of car shammy with the vent holes cut open and keep it wet before going on the track(I use a mediacal syringe with water). This is cheap, ligther than a heatsink and even try Nitro Freeze spray to keep it really cool. Also change you pivot blocks from the stock set to 0deg-front & 1deg-rear.
Hope it helps!

Vance

Have you seen the Schumacher carbon battery-straps?
They look quite similar to your design, with a vertically mounted piece along the strap, with the shape of the battry-cells macined. If you can see what i'm trying to explain.

Thank you, I am also working on a bumper brace, camber link mounting plate made from 3.1mm material, and a custom front sway bar mount that mirrors the sway bar mount over on top of the upper deck...

Is the vertically mounted piece glued onto the other or is it one piece machined?
