Default MBX6 top diff mount (tray) for electric conversion

Hi All,

I am designing an upper plate that replaces the top diff mount for the MBX6 for an electric conversion. The purpose of this tray plate is the following:

* mount a cooling fan above the motor. This system is designed to support both 30x30mm and 40x40mm fans (YES, MULTIPLE SIZE FANS!!!)
* mount personal transponder
* mount receiver
* mount ESC
* mount misc. items

YES, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO MOUNT ALL OF THIS ON A SINGLE TRAY WITH THIS DESIGN!!!

With this design, you will make your electric conversion simple, neat, and centering your components in the middle of your car.

These pictures are the prelim of the design and will be fabricated in aluminum and possibly carbon fiber. I have not yet determined a price per unit, but I will sometime next week. If there are a lot of interest in this design, I will fabricated across other models of buggies like Xray, Losi, and Kyosho.

Here of some photo's of the prelim design. Please PM if interested in one of these units. Even if you want if for another buggy like Losi, Xray, or Kyosho. I am guestamating I can have them shipped by mid to end of next week.

PLEASE NOTE, THIS IS A PRELIM DESIGN. THE REAL DESIGN WILL BE IN ALUMINUM!!!!

Carbon (or even staying with plastic) might be smart. 1/8th scale is grueling on gear and if a wire's insulation gets cut/worn off it could be a safety of sorts for that plate to be non conductive. The only load area is the span between the center diff bulkheads and a decent 3mm plastic could probably handle that. Would/could also cut down on possible radio glitches (not a big problem in the days of 2.4ghz).

Very nice looking piece, it has a very nice fit.

If you know anyone with molding capability a shroud around the spur gear (like the 8ight has) would be cool too.

You might want to point that transponder toward the front of the vehicle.

I wouldn't want it smashed up against the battery.

Just a thought.

Hey mac0w,

The transponder is on the top tray, above the batter. Can you clarify what you mean?

Thanks

I finally received the final product for this utility tray for electric conversion. I need to do some durability testing to make sure everything is up to par. There is a little flex on this tray, but I do not think it will be a big deal. I may need to go a little thicker on the aluminum. The piece I have now is a little thin.

I still haven't figured out how well this will fit across other models. So, it will be hard to say for sure if it fits with xray, kyosho, losi, and associated. I'll keep you guys posted.
