Looking forward to seeing those too . How much shorter did you make the chassis? I'm guessing that was done to help the handleing due to the lighter weight?

That quote is why I'd like to be a 'Team' driver, so I wouldn't have to wait for the details... Why do I have to be such a below average driver??

I did some design changes and will hopefully have the prototype made by the end of next week. We added a weighted tray to bring the car right to the new weight of 725 grams. This will be with popular electronics and body along with race ready tire sizes.

jason, since 1s is fast becoming the present rather than just the future, i tried fitting a smc pack, and noted that there is an aft limit to battery placement and the cell positioner thickness takes advantage of a space in a 4cell pack that the smc pack also uses.

will your new bottom plate use a different positioner or smaller slots to hold the pack a little higher? or the 'weighted tray' may take care of all of this. i presume its one of the above or another solution since you seem a thoughtful and clever fellow.

but in the meantime, when mounting a smc pack are people just adding shims to the plate to hold the smc battery above the positioner or using a different means of positioning the pack?

There is going to be a tray that locates the pack. If you want to run it on the standard chassis, just remove the locator plate and you can tape the pack in.

Jason,

you mention the new chassis has a weighted locator pack for the LiPo. With the standard chassis on my RR with all my gear, with a body, and wheels my car rings in at 740gm already. (thats with a heavy weight body... I crash a lot )

will there be a light weight or less weighted tray to locate the LiPo that wont make us with heavy Rx's and big power caps (Novak GTB Cap) run too heavy?

Otherwise I am all for a optimized chassis for LiPo packs Anything that doesnt require me to tape the sucker in.
