Since I probably won't get to race this for a while, I might go with the HPI RTR instead. The HPI has a decent BL system already (which I need to get anyway) and has better flexibility with batteries as well.

The whole motor plate slides to adjust gear mesh. Has two M4 screws on the bottom and a M3 screw on the top in the center diff top brace part.
