You got to make it a mid motor mount, right now it won't steer.

A few years ago some guys made a conversion for the TC3 simular to what you came up with except the motormount was in the middle of the car, and had 2 smaller shafts. It looked cool but it never really took off good luck.

we were thinkin of junking this particular idea..
and goin for a different saddle config..
the motor would stay where it is stock..
then there would be three cells next to the motor.. in the back and the other three up front where the stock servo placement was and just place the servo on the other side..

i have a feeling that will work better.

Looks nice. Front motor layout this time huh. How do you think will it perform? How about the CG, weight balance distribution?

Default Mid Motor TC3

Hi Guys,
Old webpage but relevant:
http://hometown.aol.co.uk/b3buggy/RC...racing_006.htm
Can be easily done with the TC4FT Motor mount now. The TC3 had its motor mount molded into the chassis.
