I think I will have all 20 of the M18 that I ordered 3 months ago this Friday, I can't wait.
Since I have some spare time....I figured there might be several ways to mount 6 cells without pushing the motor UP HIGH over the shaft....for micro, low CG play a hugh roll.
Stock setting with 5 cells
6 cells (stick pack) (the best layout)
6 cells (inline)
The inline layout required some cutting, and cannot be use on SSG precutted battery slot chassis...........you will need to use on stock one, then remove the battery post and holder and dremel some plastic at the end of the motor mount...then use strapping tape to tape your battery down like 12th scale pan-car style.
I think the scale of the XXL, SPY ESC, Hitec 81MG servo are very close.....the odd one is the big block motor (I used the HPI Elite one because I can't find a vertical view of the BB motor...)...and the batteries 2/3A are very close to actual size.
I hope the X-ray can be hopped up like my EXO micro.....just can't let HPI micro take all the goodies.
