Smart way to lay it out. How hard was it to move the servo over to the battery side. I like it!

I think you may upgrade your car to 3.5T BL motor

Thats what Im talking about! The cars can be so much easier balanced with using a short lipo pack, and by reducing the weight, you can still get the same runtimes you would have with a higher mah.

We just need to convince a manufacturer to release a 4 cell ni-mh size hard case lipo! Even if its not legal right away. Build from the clubs up.

I use 3cell lipo 2200mah + 10.5T BL motor, runtimes 6 minutes, the speed like 7.4 lipo + 3.5BL motor. I think no need to increase battery size.
