Search is pretty useless on this thread, but sometimes it does yield results.

This is probably not your issue though thought I would post my experience with this. I had a melted diff cup and support. It turned out to be my rear Spider gears had stripped so the truck had no rear drive and was essentially relying on the center diff oil to drive the front heating it up. The truck felt slow though like the battery was going to dump any second.

I made the mistake of trimming my side guards for a big race, I see a lot of people doing this. I think this is a bad idea for little performance gain. I run the BCE chassis... so my thoughts were the same about the KingHeadz chassis design with the motor hanging off the side. So after that big race I ended up with a nice dent in the side of my Tekin Pro4. Not exactly something you want happening to a new motor. I have a Schuur speed 4300KV coming as a replacement, but I ordered new side guards. Don't want this to happen to Ron's motor and thought I would share my experience. The side guards are there for a reason and 4x4 short course racing can be very aggressive depending on the event. I wanted so bad to run he Chris Attebary battery tray, but it is designed for lightened SCTE's with trimmed side guards.

I run the ape tray from Attebarry with the kingHeadz chassis with the guards with no issues, you just have to trim the screw on the top side a little to clear the bottom of the battery, been running mine for a couple three months without any issues, works great.

Hey guys,

I just wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about the SCTE guys. I had some trouble with the motor on my mill and it took a while to get it worked out. I should be able to get some more trays make this weekend. I will post here when they are available again.

Thanks,


Chris

I cut the back out of the tray. I also relocated the tray way back, my battery is 1 5/8" behind the motor.http://i1340.photobucket.com/albums/...g?t=1365116342

So i can just cut the Front and back of the battery tray and move it back and put the ESC up Front ? Or do i need to drill a hole still to move it back ?

Also with the Battery straps on without the guards up Front and Back does it still hold fine ?

The battery stops are in place, and the sides are touching. It does not move, and I have had a good spill, no problem. I had to drill 3 ea. holes to remount it. This is not easy to do, and I did not have the right countersink. I also plugged my holes with rivets. I used the same hole alignment to mount it. I dremeled a lot of plastic off, and also hole sawed it on the bottom as well.

Took me all of about 15 min to complete. Just need to drill 1 hole and dremel the speedo holder off the battery tray. There is a pic of how I did it a couple pages back.

Oh . But if you cut off the Front part of the battery tray can you put the ESC up Front im sure if there would be enough room though without moving the Tray back ?

I went to my LHS today and i seen somebodys SCTE mostly stock but with the Carbon towers and there was the Front and Rear springs.

On the shocks i dont know what weight oil was in them but they felt better than the Black Front racing springs ! Seems like they would work much better on the Carpet ?

I wanted to get the balance first, then trim weight off the tray. I tried it earlier and it wasn't far enough back to make a difference. Now it really makes a difference.
