Interesting design, how well do the lower body types work on your ride? Any problems with the battery cover hitting on a body like the speed12?

Hey Chris, The Speed 12 body fit fine on the 3D12 and Im sure it will fit fine on the 3D08 since its the same placement. Most of us are still running the Speed 8...

Here are some pictures of my 3Do8 with a brushless system in it. LRP Sphere comp speedo with Novak 13.5 motor. I have noticed that the old canned Novak brushless motors are harder to install, if you have the new canned (rounded edges, ribbed) then you are good to go!

How is the pod balance with the BL motor in it?

I should get around to trying one of these.

does it use a soft spring, or is it medium? the battery placement is pretty cool, but hows the traction in the rear?

Looks awesome! I like seeing something fresh. Is it a chore getting batteries in and out?

I really like the solid side links ala CRC. It makes setting up the cars a lot less of a chore. And I like the wider links to allow the electronics to sit further back. I still have an issue with the battery mount not having enough in front of the battery to keep the battery from going through the servo. Even with my Darkside having the posts in front of the battery I still bend up screws from the battery hitting the posts very hard.

My ideal car right now would be wide links like the Diggity, rear pod and flex plates from the BMI, Battery mount from the Darkside, and front suspension from the Speed Merchant Rev. 5

Bob: The pod balance seems to be no different from running a brushed motor. The BL motor is not any bigger but a little heavier, and the weight is in the center of the car so its not any different. We havent had to tweak the pod any differently than when we were running a brushed motor.

Yes we usually run the blue side springs with the blue center spring. We are currently running .020 or .022 in the front. Rear traction is good, we run 5,000 to 10,000 dampener lube to help keep it planted. We run CRC pink rears and magenta fronts!

No, its a breeze, two screws and the top plate swings to the side.

InspGadgt: I agree, very easy to setup and tweak. The batteries are pretty well lodged between the chassis and the top-plate and none of our drivers have had an issue with the batteries.

The brushless speedo is only about 4-5 grams heavier than a brushed (KO) so it really hasnt made any difference in the way the car tweaks. It has been noted that the Novak brushless speedo is a little bit of a pain to get mounted, but the LRP fits like a charm.
