Try 10.5 s2 boosted, we reach speeds upto 100kph at our track. This is beter for the motorpod, and you won't be destroying as much spurs.

But if you want to use the extentions then for a ballpark gues rollout between 25 and 28 mm depending on circuit. You should use 48dp spurs and pinions.
Replace the 1/12 centershock with a touringcar shock if you haven't already. The 1/12 shock is too weak for a 2s lipo heavy car.
see above, i already posted a ballpark gues rollout

If anyone is interested in running on bigger tracks like 1/8th scale nitro, this might be the next trend in fast electrics. What do you guys think?
I'm getting closer and closer to finishing the prototype and hope to have it on track soon.
If this goes into production, the front end will most likely be a more traditional pan car type but for now, I have a bunch of Evolva parts to get something built up for initial testing. Who knows, maybe it will work really well as is.

i would rather have the battery load towards the rear and have the electronics towards the front (if you are going to use that chassis)

You can do that. It's just where I placed the battery in the 3D model.
This version is showing a 3s but you will have the room to use most any battery configuration you wish. A 2s pack on a 4.5 or 5.5 motor should do very well given the traction to weight ratio for this design. I have yet to integrate the battery stops but I likely will model them up soon and make them adjustable.
This is an eighth scale car by the way...
There is plenty of room in the pod to even use a 550 or bigger motor but that may not be practical.

How thick will the rear axle be? If you want to put in a 1/8 motor be sure to make enough room in the pod so you can move the bigger motor back and forth. Make the carbon topplate in a square and all the way over the podplates. It will make the whole pod a lot sturdier.

ps:
I see the carbon bottom podplate stops halfway? Why is that?

It's a 10mm carbon axle.
The original design I had was identical to the CRC pod, just bigger but I realized that with 3mm carbon material, it was plenty strong so I started trimming the fat. The bulkheads are 6mm thick and are quite strong based on the amount of material I neglected to remove.
The bottom plate only goes halfway back because I only saw a need to provide clearance for the motor and the x brace on the rear would provide plenty of lateral rigidity as well. It's still primarily a box design, just is a little more trick. Regarding motor clearance, I modeled the pod using a Mamba monster 2650 kv motor with room to spare. The internal width of the pod is nearly 83mm wide! There is plenty of room for adjustability especially if you choose to run a 540 size motor. One might need to add a little weight to balance the pod in this case as it will be a little off center.

Here is a picture with the plastic prototype parts attached. Note the bulkheads are from the original design which was more like the CRC layout.

Is this Mr. Yoder? I believe ive seen that prototype up close and personal at Norcal! Cant wait, the car will be amazing when finished.

Awe man... my cover is blown.
Things are coming together so I hope to be testing at nor-cal in the spring.

Ha Ha! I will be passing through El'Fresno tomorrow to see my pops on my way to Chino,CA for the 2012 Region 12 on road Championship. Are you going? I'm not racing, just having fun watching this time. Anyways I was waiting for you car to pop up on the "Will there ever be a 1/8 scale on road car" thread here! Its on page 5 now. I think it will actually work out well on Norcals track. Not enough room for the 1/8 gas to have room to gear up but a 1/8th electric and 1 to 1 gear ratio, sweet! Thanks for all your help this winter and keep up the good work.

Thought I recognized that arm...

And I think it is potentially more marketable (to the off-road crowd) with a 3S pack option. Gives them a way to use those packs.
