It's a Fiegao 380c 13t. The battery is a A123 4s-13.2v. As to why, I wanted a mid-motor 1/10 electric truck. Once I get it wrung out I believe it will be fast enough to run with the gas trucks. Don

nice ride!

why?
because it's a cool fun project. but i'll have to ask why you would put the buggy tires on the front. if your a basher, who cares.

Actually those are an original set of narrow fronts that used to come with the RC10T. I have another set- if they don't work I'll go with the wide ones. Don

How does it handle though? Does it actually hook up? The nitro chassis has the reciever battery hanging behind the rear axle to push weight over the rear wheels, usually only 4WD`s are mid mount for traction reasons.

Well done though man, looks very tidy

Thank you, I still need to test it. Hopefully it will have enough rear traction. All up weight is 65oz. It still appears to have a rearward weight bias. Part of my goal was mass centralization. Don

I think I might try your steering set-up but I'm getting a whole new CF chassis made. Have you looked at Futaba's and KO's low-pro servos?

I've yet to look at KO. The one on the truck is a FP-S9102. Hopefully it will prove adequate. Don

Is that the low-profile one?

Yes, it is normally used in an airplane wing for the ailerons. It has the additional advantage of always returning to center even when you suddenly let go fo the stick/wheel and the control bounces. Don
