If Vesa hasn't got any photos I'll see what I can regarding this at the club at the weekend. Andy's car is a prototype CR5 though so it is slightly different (cross brace and anodizing).

Thanks Lizardboy, please email me to info@v-dezign.net or pm and we can talk more!

Inline battery setup? No.

Carpet Ripper 4.0 and V are designed with different rear end geometry which means no compromise like inline battery is needed to use. Using inline battery moves the weight more forward, yes. In CR V battery is a lot more forward than other cars and perfectly balanced with electrics in front of the battery. Using big sized speedos like SP wont make the side to side balance any easier with inline battery + chassis is still pretty wide in those cars.

THings can be done in different ways, based on lots of testing and theory behind, in my opinion putting battery inline is just compromising to get weight more forward to help with issues that occur with the rear geometry used in those cars.I am not saying they do it wrong, I just did that differently almost 2 years ago and will continue in that path.

To realize things you need to realize reason and consiquence relationship. We could also start using cab forward bodies as they are better in offroad, or what about using some toe in in rear tires, as it makes the car easier to drive as all other onroad cars use it too, must be good

Just kidding

Thanks for publishing some pics nothing like seeing something in person

setup is a little different from std gold side and gold center, guess for track conditions that works best

Hope to see some at IIC and snowbirds great handling car so easy to be consistent

Remember that Andy's car pictured above is with non-anodized proto parts. All alum parts are anodized to black, so for proper photos see first page or homepages.

For clean and cool looking wirings the car is designed so that motor can and is suggested to turn like shown in Andy's car. This was in 4.0 version already. More clearence to body as motor tabs wont touch and scratch the body.

CR V kits will have tubes also pre-assemblied with damper syrup! Suggested syrup is CRC blue, Corally red or similar, about 20k oil.
