Default Centralized battery configuration TC...

There are two cars that are known to me for having a centralized battery configuration. Team magic E4 & Losi JRXS-r. Does anyone know of some other car brands that have a centralized battery config other than the two listed??? Thanks in advance!

Mike

Woow.. now that I saw some pics of HPi Pro3 I got rally surprised of the change HPI made from PRO 3 to 4... it was a huge change..
And now Team Magic did something that looks similar to the PRO 3.... it's kinda weird.... that TM announced a completely new car, but has almost the same layout of and old PRO 3.......
Now whats gonna be next?? Sealed belts?? And then we forget about the Losi XXXS...........

The Pro 3 was a VERY flexible car, it simply flexed too much. Great on low traction tracks, but out of the box it was hopeless on carpet.

When HPI bought Hot Bodies, one of the first things HB did were carbon fibre conversions to the Pro 3 to stiffen it, as did Penguin and other companies.

I am still interesting about the rumour of the coming soon chassis of other makes could be centralized battery.
But i am really doubt about the surely of this rumour, if this is real should have a big revolution of the car designs.
Even is real i think could be just or at least the first for US and EU makes, japanese factories could be more difficult, in the case in the JMRCA rules doesn't exist already about the homologation nor the announce of allowance of using LIPO batteries in their country.

I would think this could be the way TC's will go to make it easier for racers using LiPo's.

The E4 as well as the JRXS Type R are very similar to the Pro3 in basic layout. But both have made great improvements over the original Pro3 design.

The CF Pro3 was what the car should have been from the beginning. Going plastic tub style almost look like a downgrade from the CF Pro2!

I remember reading that HPI went with the Pro4's shaft design because that was the hot setup at the time with the TC3 having alot of success in racing back then.

The Pro3 was what got me back into R/C and would love to see HPI make an updated version
