or put the lipo in front and the tank wider also flat on the chassis.
Great improvements on a already improved car.
I'm not really a fan of the lipo on the outside, it will move weight out of the center which is a bad thing.
Since you're not able to completely lower the tank on to chassis level because it needs a lower fuel pickup point you will end up with an empty space which you can either place weight or a battery.
Designing my own tank is out of the question unfortunately because of costs. First thing in line is a new chassis.

Could I pre-order 2 sets of Carbon fibre wheel discs (for 2 cars) to beat the rush when you put them on the market? Lay down servos is a good way to lower CG; and it has been tried used by some manufacturers in some models, but we won't try this option just yet.
How much do the disks weigh? And do you epoxy a threaded plastic tube to the uprights to fix them to the car?
Keep the good work going!
Thank you Lars.
No problem, I hope to start on the production parts end of this week or early next week.
One disk plus mounting hardware weighs 3 grams.
Yes, I used superglue to glue the threaded tubes to the uprights.

Capricorn oil is rated in cps as far as I know. So when a bottle says 55 it's 500cst oil.
