I mounted my esc on top of the servo....I made a small plate out of lexan and screwed it to the extra holes in the top of the Servo mounts...this allowed me to move the ESC slightly closer to the center of the truck, making sure the servo arm did not hit the ESC......then secured the ESC to the lexan plate.

I think some guys just tape it right to the top of the servo but I was worried about it hitting the Servo arm...then if you slid it over there was not much surface contact so I was nervous to use servo tape.

I made my plate wide enough that the ESC has lots of contact area for the tape and I used a zip ties around ESC & plate to make sure it wont come loose.

Pics? I was going to custom machine a piece of carbon fiber to hold the esc from the servo plate to the battery box...

Yea, I knoticed everone has blue springs on there Hypers. I just got mine lightly used and it has stock orange ones. Thanks!
And I dont have muck experiance with 1/8s or trucks built like this. Ive always owned Traxxas, AE, HPI 1/10's. Is that noise normal? Is it becouse of all the metal gears? My old MRC ZD 1/8 buggy was load as he!! to.

If you're up to it, it wouldn't be a bad idea to go thru the diffs since it is a used RC. Clean and fill with fresh oil and try it then. Check the spur and pinion gears/mesh as well.

We took ours down to the church parking lot for its trial run and its doesnt seem noisy at all esp. compared to my Ofna buggy.

There is an ebay auction with a bunch of parts, and almost everything needed for the conversion, just need a body and wheels, which is also offered
But anyway, the body is around 5 1/2 inches wide from side to side (139.7mm)
link to auction http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...#ht_682wt_1139

Id like to see the chassis when you are done...
I seen a 10tt with a carbon fiber chassis {3.5mm flat plate and they used an aluminum wedge to get the angle for the front gearbox} but they used a complete middle diff from a B44 with the b44 motor mount, so they had a slipper, it seemed to work very well...
