Sorry I meant I am struggling to follow the thread as I don't know how is running the original car, a track star conversion, exotek conversion, XR, or XM!

How do you find the rear traction of the XR compared to the original car?

I am sorry but I cant give a comparison to the original car as I only ran the stock chassis one time before I converted to the XR.

Does anybody know if the exotek battery strap fits the trackstar +6 chassis?

I am going to have to say no.
Because the Exotek +8 extension uses the T plate not the Chassis to gain length.

Bummer. The SC10 battery strap holes line up perfect but it is so wide it's hard to get access to the battery plugs. Just servo tape a piece in for now to make it work. Keep looking or get the dremel out I guess. I thought Trackstar made one but I didn't see it on their site.

On my +6 car we used a stock batt strap with a piece of carbon ca glued to the bottom of it.
Never had any problems with it.

Well after the last time I raced the car (about a month ago), I swore I was done with it. Pulled it out today and decided I am going to give it another go. I pulled all the electronics to put into one of my RC10's so I ordered a new SMC 17.5 motor and am going to order a Hobbywing Just Stock Club Spec ESC for it. I have a Savox 1258 to put in and a Reedy shorty to try out. I don't expect to be as fast as the new B5's but maybe I won't be the slowest car this time out . I really want to try the new chassis kit, but can't stomach the price.

Hey guys I'm searching without luck for aluminum servo mounts. I'm guessing Tamiya makes some that will work. Anyone have a part number?
