Well, the Neu 1515 will fit the Fusion EX-1 buggy. It's a little tight but it'll fit.
You will have to route the wires to the left to clear the steering linkage but that'll be easy.

I'm running mine with the Medusa 2000KV motor and it's as sturdy as a tank! I'm running two 2S Neu 5000 mAh hard case packs on it and there's some allowance for thicker packs. What's the height of your 3S packs? I'll measure it on the battery tray and let you know.

BTW, you don't need graphite parts for the Fusion buggy. The aluminum ones are more than up to the task. I have yet to break any part on it. I even let my friend have a whack at it and they are very impressed how strong and easy it was to drive.

the graphite isn't for durability, mainly for losing weight I am looking at. not a big deal, just curious though since I would be running what I consider a heavy setup.

Can you weigh your buggy with full running gear?

the packs I am looking to use are the Trakpower 3S 4900mah packs.

137mm x 46mm x 39mm

pack height is 39mm

Ok, from my understanding you'll be running 6S so it'll be a little heavier to the ones I'm using right now...I'll weigh my set-up with full running gear e.g. tires, batteries etc installed....

I'll check the dimension you've posted and let you know ASAP...

thanks!

The packs are about 415g per pack. So it would be similar to running the 8400Hv packs from maxamps as far as weight.

Default Fusion EX-1

Just ran my Fusion, very impressed with handling and balance right out of the box. Very well designed.

Where can I order the ESC holder part? I have an MBX6 and would like to try one of these for a cleaner looking install. Thanks!
