Looks like someone took a Pro4 and moved the motor to mid chassis.
Clever !

Looks like this is a way of moving the motor into the centre of the car to maximise all the weight in the centre of the car.
They have elongated the motor shaft. thats all.

looks a but messy, also lots of added weight with 2 motor mounts etc... pls the coupling that is on the original motor shaft will wear quickly as it is plastic and is handling all of the motor and transmission load.

.

I think there is very little load on that coupling. I think the outdrives have a bigger load. It should be fine in that perspective. If I am wrong someone please correct me.

However the RPM's produced by the motor would be a bigger concern to me. More rotating mass may slow down final drive. Also, if that coupling can't handle the RPM's it may disintergrate while spinning.

If someone has to redesign a car like that to get it to work. If that is the case. The car is not worth having. Just my thoughts.

I would ammend the top deck and attach the spur directly to the main centre shaft and bin the other components. like to see a mod motor in the car the way it is at the moment. LOL

Ryan Cavalieri did that to his BJ4 and that was made J-Concepts make the BJ4WC edition.

Interesting...

Is it just me or does that look like a slipper clutch type mechanism mounted on the old motor mount?

no slipper just space for second bearing for pinon shaft, I'd move battery instead of motor, but don't see need, t/c on carpet have more than enough steering, but neat to see someone try

Um.... No...... Jason and Brad had been working on that car and they tested the day after the '05 Nats. Theres a lot more to it than just moving the motor. They had to change the weight issue, new arms, lots of things. And Ryan wasnt the only person to have that car at the Worlds. Maifield, Drescher, Cavalieri, and others had the car.
