I personally would want then as far in board as possible and maybe the out side of the tray cut down a little to allow easier installation of the battery and to cut some weight.
They are slid out 1or 2 mm from the stock location to allow the battery to sit in the tray without interfering with the esc.
I am taking into consideration everyones concern about weight by milling the pockets on the bottom side of the trays larger than they need to be to clear the nuts for the side guards.Hopefully they will be only slightly heavier than the stock plastic trays which I feel is a ok tradeoff simply because these trays will not break and you will not have to worry about your lipo getting chewed up in the pinion gear which is the main reason I came up with the idea for these trays. Thanks

That looks like it is basically the RTR setup available from Caster. The speed control seems to be pretty solid and has a broad range of settings. Setup is pretty simple whether you use the programmer card, or just the button and tones. I'm not 100% sure about the motor though. I've done a little bashing with one and haven't seen any problems, but I have yet to race with that motor. It seems like it would hold up OK, but I hate to assume.

I've never personally tried that specific combo, but it should be pretty solid. I actually run a 2000kv Medusa in my Fusion and have no complaints.

I will be honest and say we have had about a 20% failure rate with the rtr system on the track. We are recommending a specific programming for the hobbywing now. If that fails, then we can go to a 1800kv for the rtr. If you are a racer, Caster Racing USA is recommending and selling speedpassion as an alternative. Similar products, but modified for racing.

I will also mention that we have several team drivers who run castle and some are trying the tekin system. I personally wish I could find a bulletproof one. That is what I would put in my rtrs.
