Default Kassanova Scorpion chassis (with short vid!)

My creation is what I call the Kassanova Scorpion. It is a converted Nitro X-Cell that now has a inboard mounted motor. What do you think?






Will try to get pics outside tomorrow.

If you could get the battery to site inline it wouldn't be a bad setup

Cheers

you could build your pack as hump pack. with four on the bottom and two on the top just use wire to connect the last two cells from each end of the pack so you can center them to the middle. then you can still direct solder as you are now. then some strapping tap will keep them nice and tight in the config.

Cool. Run your cells as a saddlepack. It should fit better.

Thanks guys.
If I could take a little material from the motor mount I could get the pack right in with a 5x1 setup.
Can you tell me how strapping tape would hold down the pack?
The saddle pack was an idea but it takes up more room.
The saddle pack is also an idea but it makes the CG higher.

Default New steering set-up

Got a little inspiration from a XX-4WE:



Not as good as a lay down but fitting batteries will be easier and using Li-Po will be possible too.

Nice!

O.k some feedback

Just from visual it looks the weight is heavier on one side of the truck.Maybe just maybe during a jump it might lean to the heavier side.

Good that u got inspired to stand the servo up .

Let's see the vid of the truck running.... drool can't wait!!!
