Yes it is! Now that I look the next size Castle motor is a 5700Kv. This might be a little much but you can always dial it back. A couple things to be aware of with this car: It likes to run hot and overpowering is not to your advantage--maybe this will help with your decision.

Also, you have limited space to work with. A MM Pro is still a large ESC you might want to do more research on footprints. I have a Novak Kinetic and barely fits. Tekin has really small ESCs and are less of a problem. It all depends on what receiver you are using as well. The Spekrum stuff is really small and gives you more options. I have Novak's smallest speedo and Futaba's smallest Rx compatible with the 4PK and is funny how much room I do not have. There is about .04" between my speedo and my spur.

Wow..thanks! I have not even thought about the real estate on this chassis (you are wide open in the 1/8th world so it has never crossed my mind). I run an M11x with a tiny reciever so... I have a MM pro on my jammin so I have that for reference. With that, do you have the size specs on your setup for comparison? (this is getting complicated!)

SMC also has a new pack out that will fit (5200, 50C Extreme). As long as the hight of batteries doesn't exceed 25mm, you'll be good to go.

Yeah, a couple of us at our our track are running these and fit just fine. What version of the kit do you have?

I believe there is two different height settings for the battery strap. One for 23mm and 25mm. You might be set on 23mm or the bottom hole.

Yeah, this thing is a booger to wire up. Do you know anyone that has one? That is your best bet. You can get a better look here:

It will get complicated! There is much more room on other 10th scales, even. This one is special indeed!

Check step 14 of the instruction manual. It gives you two positions of the battery strap mounting. For that battery, you should mount the strap in the top hole.

Huh. Weird! Did you put the foam strips underneath the battery? BTW, I stole your avatar for our local forum. I just bought the Ripper "Pool Light" deck. I saw the Ripper art book Powell put out but is like a $140. WTH?
