The battery is bottom loaded and is secured with 2 flat head 4-40x1/4 screws. We designed it to fit 4 cell or 7.4 volt trackpower saddle pack placed on the tray side by side as a brick pack. I will be getting the trackpower pack loaded up as soon as it gets here. I went by the dimensions they listed and it will be a direct fit with no modifications.

I am going to be making 1 more change to the car. I have developed a pod droop adjuster that allows you to adjust the pod droop with 1 set screw instead of using the shocks overall length. This makes setting pod droop so much easier and very similar to how it is done on a TC.

If you really wanted to you can run lipo down the center. I didnt want to use them that way due to the disadvantages in handling but it can be done.

I went with the foam bumper as opposed to the C/F to keep things safe. A carbon fiber can do some damage to a turn marshal that just happens to walk in front of your car.

Thanks buddy. I will be having them cut similar to that for production but they will be a little cooler looking.

Yes, the center pivot,flex plates and pivots, all ballstuds and pivot balls,pod,damper tubes,front end(with exception to 1/10th kingpins and springs),servo mounts,and mostly all of the standoffs. I had to replace 2 of the standoffs and added the top deck/battery tray mount.

Tom, I don't expect too many locals to accept them just yet. Especially living here in "oval" country. But I'll run it at the TC tracks we have in Durham, Fayetteville, Goldsboro. Even in SC. If there is no class for them, I'll just run the car during practice time and between rounds at each track (exposure). Or just ask them to let me run it with TC's and DQ me for my results. Since I live 5~10 minutes to our permanent onroad track here in Goldsboro, I can head out every day and practice all I want. Main thing for me is to have this class accepted at big races so I can travel to them and race it. I'll just hang up my TC and race Pro10 at say... the Birds.... or the nats. Anyways, I'll have a Pro10 next month. Maybe 2. You can look at them anytime. Or you can take a lap or two.

When it comes to running with the TC class. Most locals wont protest too bad if you show up with only four cells. They are likely to say something like. "Try to stay out of our way." Then of course if you win, well then they will take the opportunity to DQ you. All of that wouldnt stop me from running.

Jason is that Vette 190 or 200mm?

here they come, from what i have heard there is a couple company's working on bringin back this class, put a vintage style body or whatever on it and you have a VERY cheap and fun class, tires last forever, brushed motors last forever without a cut, basically like someone told me, it has been in his trunk for 3 monthes and stays tehre till racing...

could be just what onroad needs

Wow- Jason I didn't think you got up this early in the morning. I'm looking forward to racing in this class. Maybe if we get enough we can race in our own class at Robbies state race(TA bodies-4 cell and 13.5).
