i slide the batteries in between the front belt when using the HB upper deck. im using side by side batteries with corally type connectors. i raised the battery connector near the spur gear side with an extra battery bar so it will clear the battery holder. it also helps that i used a small receiver and esc so the battery can twist out and through the belt.

I have the HB upperdeck and chassis.... does take some patiance but you can get the batts in and out without removing the upperdeck. The batts go through the between the belts.

oh yeah.............. the upper deck from jet is very strong and
it also makes the battery removal easy.this is one of the best upper decks out it and the hb !no flex and nice looking.
the prp deck is a bit bulky and doesnt really look as nice either.

if it feels bulky, dremel's work well.
on carpet with foam tires we want as stiff a car as possible and the prp top deck does that for me. but when running asphalt i will narrow the sides of the top deck by 2-3mm to add flex. and it looks cool. and sometimes when i'm racing patience is a tuff thing to come by. my $.25

if anyone races asphalt, try running the PRP chassis w/o the top deck. car will gain traction and is very smooth.

Thanks, Lem! Don't let Pro3racing take off your topdeck either, he hasn't liked our stuff since the first day we posted info about it

Shrekair just signed up recently as a Team PRP Team Driver. In a few weeks he should be getting comfortable with our Pro 3 chassis and will porbably have some good tips coming along. Take your time "Shrek", see ya at the races!

We have now expanded to 3 team drivers and a freelance test driver as well We'll be posting Team Driver pages to our site shortly, and then we'll be adding team setups and tips in the coming months.

Yes, our chassis is tough enough to run without the top deck, but, personally I like to keep it on.

team prp ......that is very funny its not that i dont like it
but its about like all the rest of them. i have been reading
comments about the chassis and upper deck and havent
seen anything to brag about yet.
but i do wish your company well and one thing i do think
you should make the servo guard a bit longer to protect a bit more of the servo.

enjoy and good luck

I'm reading a lot of posts about the HB upper deck. I've got mine on ebay right ow, along with a chassis and CF towers. If anyone it interested...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=1749261855

Or PM me and I'll see about selling it without eBay...
