I was looking at my battery mount today, at my last meet I noticed the new TC6 runs the battery basically hard against the belt, this got me wondering, so I moved my battery inner guide and pushed in my alloy mounts, and remembered on the Top the Lipo can also go hard against the belt, with just enough room to still get my bullet plugs into the battery.

But, I then did a quick pick up test from the balance holes in the bulkheads, and suddenly remembered why I set my battery so far out originally, it kills the left/right balance with the battery all the way in (5000mah IP), so in the end I pushed it back out again...

I'm going to guess those pics I see with guys running it further in, are either running a heavier battery, or are possibly running race weight and run it set in so they can add more weight onto the right?.

I run my battery and electronics right on the belt. Everything is as far to the center as possible with perfect balance. I'll get photos later tonight.

Here is a close up of my lay out as of a few hours ago. It's not the best photo in the world. I was running a KO 2413, but I wanted to give this mini servo a shot. With the mini servo, I'm able to move the servo all the way forward against the bulkhead. It is low enough to clear the Ackerman arm. The 2413 isn't, so I have to move it back to clear the arm.

I'm not 100% sure that I like what I just did. I'll probably end up back with the KO 2413.

The car balances with no weights at 1338.

Nice pakk

I have been running the TCX battery retainer for a while now... Its quite nice not taping batteries anymore. I would use the TOP lipo retainers but I dont have the lipo chassis (Waiting for the new one to be released)

We run 1425g here so its much easier to get the car balanced and down to weight.

Also using hobbywing 120a... So its hard to get it centered (Large footprint)

Very happy with the car lately...

Not up for sale yet, guess Mike is still testing.

Nice, can't quite be bothered to do that myself, in the end I shifted my battery in just a little (put smaller shims in the TOP mounts).

I got the old v2 60a (same size of the 120a I think), it is a bit chunky, mine never sat in all that far, I ended up hiding the cap on the inside of it under the top deck on mine.
Although mine won't be in much longer, got a Justock coming now, smaller and lighter, will work ok for me considering there is no timing in Qld anymore.

I run mine middle, most setup sheets show it run back, not 100% what it gives you, maybe more steering?, though I like how it feels middle, did check on mine forward just before, mine is like a fly shyte off touching, it's almost close enough you can barely tell one way or the other.

Hi There
I am new to racing in Sydney. Just wondered if anyone can point me in the direction of a really good shop where racers go, and possibly work.
Shop needs to cater for Electric 1/10 Touring Cars.I am looking for somewhere to buy HPI bodies. Rubber slicks, inserts and Proline wheels. Corally gold plugs. And some Associated spares.

very good istallation!
what's the feel with this servo position?
for more flex with Stiff Chassis, remove 4 inner screw on topdeck, use oring under screw of wing, and use only 1 screw on the pulley shaft.
if you want more, take Moderate Chassis.

feel ... the steering power is same but the weight balance is more easy !!! more space for esc , amb and receiver ...

this servo mode fit in inverted belt just .... that you says that for more flex that I must place orings below the wings ... that doesn't let the very weak chassis in impacts ???

surely the car is more inclined to tweak!
Pedro Silva(PMC on this forum) use this with good results on low grip surface
