Here is a picture from the car of mathijs (pro10holland) with his solution for fitting a 2s saddlepack. (hope you don't mind mathijs
Interesting. But these aren't regular parts I think.
So they have to be custom made?
That is as to the shock post and the length of the shock.
Not something I could do myself. So there's another problem.
Lots of pancars nowadays use 2S stick LiPo in the middle of the car, lengthwise.
There is some discussion now and again about what is the best way to go. 2S stickpack or 2x1S saddlepack right in front of the rear axle. What would be your opinion on this?
Some say pancars handle better with saddlepacks, especially with cornerentry. Because with pancars it's all about weight on the rear axle some say. I doubt if that is true. A lot of pancar manufacturers would have made the wrong decision then in constructing there car.
Read a review on the XRay X10 Link the other day. These two people stated the exact opposite. 2S Stickpack Lipo would be much better, so they stated. The car would handle much better in left-right-sweepers, better weightbalance.
Another thing that is said is, that indoor on carpet 2S stickpack is better and outdoor on asphalt/tarmac with low to medium grip saddlepack right in front of the rear axle would be better.
I am kind of lost here. Any suggestions from anyone......?
