gents, just laying out the electronics now. so with these shorty batteries.. +8mm exotek chassis. 'normal' battery layout.

can't remember who, but he said "run the battery in the most forward position".... should i mount the esc between the motor and the battery in the middle of the chassis? or leave a void space and mount the esc on the side pod as well as reciever?

I can also dremel a +8 dimec plastic chassis to run a horizontal shorty battery position.
and mount the electronics down the middle.

thoughts?

What kind of track? Are you hurting for traction? If not, there's no reason to run the battery horizontal as it just helps get the weight back further.

When I was still racing my DEX210, I had the ESC in the side pod. I had two foams behind the battery and one in front so it probably wouldn't have fit anyway.

it's carpet.... I haven't even driven it yet. just asking for a starting point before going through a bunch of two sided tape.

mocking up the install theres room for the battery pushed close to the servo. with enough space to mount the esc behind the battery. have the caps from the esc on one pod and the receiver on the other.

no I have not run it yet. the fishing has been too good to spend any time on wrenching.

I am just about done making the shock towers. +2mm for the front ones. have completed the capt america bump steer mod and the diff case brace. also ordered a custom chassis skin.

I've sat staring at the buggy nursing a coffee wondering if the battery pushed that far forward would be too much weight up front. I have a fan for the esc and i'm not to concerned about temps bein so close to the motor.

here is a pic of the mock up.... hopefully you guys have done the photobucket fix.

any thoughts are appreciated.
