Ok. Here are a few pics. They include the 275 x 75 foot track during Worlds Practice Day 3. The Protorform LTCR body medium weight. Sweep Exp 40 prototype tires on EXP yellow wheels.

Here is a link to some video of a couple of guys that I race with. We are hitting 58-60 mph at the end of the long straight.

I use windows 7 and windows media player to view this HD video. You may need an upgrade of the video player on other operating systems. I updated Apples Quick time for windows on another computer.

There are a couple of advantages to my mod vs this inline mod

http://www.aeforums.co.uk/forum/inde...showtopic=3647

First, I still have three points of support and more especially a front point of support. When you hit a barrier head on the motor has a tendency to bend the motor support by continuing forward travel. The stronger the motor plate is the better. Even a slight bend disrupts the handling. I have a discussion of this a few pages back.

Second if a few mm has a noticeable advantage then 7 mm should be better still. I noticed an improvement in the chicane. Elsewhere I could not tell.

I chose this LTCR body as it is the latest from protoform. As dimensions are highly regulated for the body now, I just have to assume it has more little "cheats" built in to help make you faster. I cannot tell the difference between it and the Mazda 6. There is a lighter LTCR version available. On my Losi this was noticed as the car became lighter.

Did you ditch the Diggity brace? I don't see it in your pictures any more.

BlueEagle- I am still using the Diggety Design Battery Brace. It puts the battery edge flush to the frame edge in the front and .2 inches out in the back for good corner weights with the motor moved inward 7 mm. I drilled new holes and was able to use the stock battery hold down. Sweet. I am using the brace upside down.

Not sure what you mean by flipping and what is the reason why?

I have been looking at another option to bring the motor inboard using TC6 motor and shaft mount, it looks like it is possible, this way you ended up using the rear gear diff with proper shiming.
