Flipped belts also means it's about 100 times easier to get to the pinion.

Marc and Victor were running SMC packs with bullet connectors. They were just taping in the packs. I can't remember if those packs had humps underneath. I didn't see anything specifically locking the batteries in place.
Marcs batterys from SMC do have the humps on the bottom.

I am glad we got a picture of the inner side of the servo. Clear that they are using the servo holder without the bridge in it. I wonder if the kit will include the servo holder...Probably not I assume

by the look of it, the main chassis will fit WE, but not the upperdeck.

Why the new top deck? Is 2mm thinner than the original?

What's with the screw hole on the chassis near the outside servo mount. New antenna position?

And damn that stupid air scoop cut out.

Yeah i have the WE,

I happen to have a 60t spur and a 45t pinion also. although i havnt tried them yet

Did you happen to notice if the pinion was very close to touching the top deck??

Also does anyone know if there is any internal ratio modification for this car (to make it lower?)
