It helps to keep heat from distorting the plastic motor mount

Thank you

I want to mount the esc behind the shorty battery but worried about traction on asphalt. Anyone need the battery all the way back to get rear grip?

I think you will find very little difference in balance, as the weight of a Shorty pack, offset by the weight of an esc is negligible

Full Lipo is different, but haven't been seen a full lipo setup run circles around my Shorty pack cars yet

Took my v2 out today for some practise with the new pit 571 and 575 combo for low grip as winter here.
Found i had good rear grip but it still under steers into corners compared to the foam tyres I have tryed(tamya soft rear, hard front) but has way more rear grip and wondering what I could try to get some more steering into the corner and get rid of the push?
thanks.
