Default Battry Connectors

Is there a preferred way of positioning the battery connectors? Either inside (close to the drive shaft) or outside (over the edge of the chassis).

WARPSPEED RACING Update:

At the Florida State Series THE WARPSPEED DEMON came in 2nd in stock A Main by Chad DeMarias,
came in 2nd in 19 turn A Main by Chad DeMarias, and came in 3rd in mod A Main by Ryan Rhodes.
In the B Main THE WARPSPEED DEMON came in 1st in stock by Greg Hunsinger, and
came in 2nd in stock by Art Jensen.
NOT BAD FOR A NEW CAR!

I received an email asking me about what makes the
WARPSPEED DEMON so different.

What makes the WARPSPEED DEMON different is that our chassis is perfectly balanced.
Our battery slots are already bevelled out so there is no filing to do. The battery slots are
closer to the drive shaft and centered compared to the Associated chassis. This is what
makes the car so perfectly balanced. We have also switched the batteries from leftside to rightside,
for better balance. The WARPSPEED chassis comes with the holes for the NTC3 swing rack.
Our chassis also comes with an upper plate that mounts from diff to diff to make it stiffer, to
eliminate flex.
Other upper plates will be available soon at 2mm thickness and with a cut out
if you like flex.

The WARPSPEED DEMON retails for $250.00 US dollars, and street cost is about
$190.00 US dollars. You can purchase the chassis thru me here at WARPSPEED.

Very nice work RF! I think I see what you mean. We haven't had
any problems yet but we run on a slick track.

Thankx for the PIC man. Will sure keep yours in mind on the
next ones. Have you made any diff gears?
