How do you guys mount the shorty packs forward on the car without it sliding backwards? Tamiya made holes on the chassis to mount it towards the rear, but i see pics with the battery mounted towards the front, and no fiber tape holding it down...
I have my esc behind my battery which keeps it for sliding. S the battery is mounted between the servo and esc.

same as Jerz616 here keeps very well. you can also add a strip of tape or Velcro to keep side, but this is not necessary.


Jerz616, you have a carbon plate mounted on the nose of your car, you can tell me more (why? What manufacturer? Etc ...).

not with a battery "shorty" of course, it's good. the easiest way is to place the ESC with the connection to the left of the car. as in previous photos.
with wire or AWG16 AWG18, flexible pod is not upset.
I glued a strip of thin foam on the ESC, to avoid contact with the battery, which can damage one or the other

I, the ESC is placed behind the battery, it is the distribution of weight in relation to control of the car.

I shoo goo an old double sided plastic servo horn, the nitro throttle/brake kind of horn, on the chassis behind the battery, holds it in place perfectly, then I run my esc behind it.

I use 3M thin double sided tape on the bottom of my batteries. It comes in the regular plastic dispenser but has a yellow label. There are two types, permanent and removeable. I use the removeable, it's marked with a blue highlight on the yellow label. The permanent is marked with a red highlight.

You can find it at office supply or craft stores. Look in the scrapbooking section. Look for this...

I put a body post foam thingy under the battery hold down To make it fit more snug.

I have 2 sets (8) HPI Bridgestone tires for sale, one set medium and one set soft they are mounted on Ride black wheels with stock inserts.
They have less 10 minutes on them.
They have too much understeer for our track but if you run on low bite untreated asphalt these will work great.
PM me if interested.
Thanks.
