Looks good are you gonna test it at norcal soon

Have you tested the inline yet?

Carpet

I don't really think so. You can mount the battery on either side, the chassis is drilled for KO/Futaba servos on the left so that puts the battery on the right. Even if the side the esc was on mattered, with the proper wire binding is not an issue.

Hey Kelly what's up?

Testing at NorCal will be coming soon, but there's no longer a carpet track there

This car is just a prototype, nothing is final yet.

Just excited about coming to watch a little 12th scale

If the battery is totally centered couldn't some vertical thin mounts to servo tape the esc and reciever to towards the back. Is there a reason people aren't doing that? So once battery is completely centered we'd have to simple mounts that screw to chassis that hug real close to battery and again regarding the esc it would be slightly higher than battery. What do you think. Only the esc would be slightly high but I think it would be cool

Looking from the front to the back the mounts would look like and L where the bottom of the L braces would have screw come through the bottom holding the L brace firm but with slight flex



And again the L braces would be as far back as possible...lol

And here is top view



I think this would be ideal design and ESC a little high would not affect anything since it's so far back

3D L brace model



You can call it the Kel Brace ...lol

just guessing by the looks of the drawing, you either have a really light weight speedo or a very heavy receiver......?

lol...It was just for fun however there wouldn't need to be bottom part of the L brace just the vertical part with screws at bottom holding it in place

I thought esc's and receivers for 12th are pretty small infact the reciever would not be even an 1/4 inch above lipo



But the esc would be just above and again servo tape would hold it

I think it would be about 1/2 inch above but again as far back without messing with top of pod or actuator side spring sections

Just an idea

Those drawings have a distinct "Napoleon Dynamite" essence to them...

"I spent like two hours shading the L-braces for the centered lipo..."

Some of that shading needs a NSFW tag.

I was going to point that out but... *Thinks of the movie heavy metal*

Yes kids don't try this at home ...lol

So lrp is 34 millimeters = 1.33858268 inches

So how high is a lipo?

Then the top of esc - lipo is how much higher it is?

And again receiver will barely stick above lipo

man are we bored tonite or what........ had to look at the shading again,

winter indoor carpet season just can't get here soon enough.

It's all in the balance of these little gems.

not to git off topic,,,,that speedpassion mod setup (yes it's big n heavy) have you tried a 17.5 or 13.5 without (or with) a rec batt pack, if you did, how in the heck did you get it to run competitvely? If you did.

How low do you want/need to mount your body?

I was guessing this idea would have the esc just clear the body with wires facing backwards

Basically in entertaining this configuration I was just pointing out the only part that might seem high for a receiver sideways will not seem above at all

Too bad they don't make a speedo that is same shape as reciever

It's a puzzle alright, all the pieces gotta fit somehow, be balanced, make weight, and be competitive.
