I hope they get the rear end roll center right for lower CG of electric touring setup. I don't think the taller nitro rear hubs and link heights are going to cut it agains the current EP chassis. Especially with rubber tires.

I know this is old and a fun way to convert your nitro MTX to electric, but I don't think it'll hold up against todays competition.
