We're expecting one, they mention it in the parts list. But no idea on timelines yet.

Drilled through the battery stop...

Needed a little adjustment to make the battery placement perfect

I did the opposite. Shaved down the face to move the battery further in.

I recommend moving the front battery post/retainer to the inner position for less interference during chassis flex. You can notice a quite a difference flexing the chassis in your hands between the two positions.

I didn't want to run the battery askew... just couldn't stand it being crooked.

The manual already specifies to place it where you have.

I moved it in at the rear as well, so it's not crooked.

I was told to leave 0.5~1mm between the top of the battery and the tip of the stopper arm to leave room for chassis torsion in curves.

BTW, can someone explain to me how 38-40 camber plates will improve the handling of the car instead of the standard 42-46 ones?

So far I've run the car in races with only factory settings and it's handled really really well.

it would be for camber gain. Longer or shorter camber links are a tuning g tool.

Black carpet practice round 2 coming up friday.
So far she's only a few tenths off my Mi8 and that was the dominating car last year on our carpet.

Default Spur Gear Change

So...Is there a quick trick to changing Spur Gear without having to tear apart the whole car?

Not really. You need to remove the top deck, loosen the rear gearbox to be able to get the spur assembly out. Can't remember if you also need to remove the rear camber plate. Once the spur assembly is out, then you need to undo the clip holding on the rear shaft cup and slide that off.
