Guys, I will leave here a picture of how it turned out my latest amendment to h9e, with this modification the car under his weight and increase rigidity.
I few weeks ago that I am using it and gave me very good result if you can give me any suggestions are welcome
I removed the battery box in order to place the battery in another place and it is so well balanced the car less than 15 grams of difference between wheels
Greetings, I hope you like it
