I am pretty surprised they didn't go with the 6 cell stick pack idea on the Xray chassis. I am sure there will be numerous chassis' out within the next year and I plan on trying a few different ones myself to see which one works for me. So far the Team Hammer racing chassis is the one I prefer. My car handles great and the Aluminum motor mount/heatsink that adjusts from the top is a plus. Hopefully the Hammer chassis will be out by the end of the month.

Going six cells on a shaft micro would require the sixth cell on the edge of the five cells, or saddle packs with the motor mount above the shaft. Perhaps, a sixth cell sitting on top of the five cells would work.

The Xray chassis will accomodate both 5- and 6-cell Xray micro battery packs.

Looks like the 6th cell goes by the endbell of the motor.

It looks like the 6 cell sitck WILL fit, much like a 6 cell 'stick' will fit in the stock chasis. The catch is, the battery can't sit low in the chasis like some other chasis designs that are out. However, at $75 for the set from Xray (and it's blue!) it may not be a bad deal. I only wish they had an upper brace like the speedster setup. That would be very nice.

Doug - the pics with the chassis mounted up look great. I look forward to trying this chassis out on the track.

I was told that even though colored carbon fiber may look better it is actually weaker than the same thickness regular colored carbon fiber. The blue does look nice but I am going to stick with the rigid stuff.

DPowell, your chassis looks good. You just need to scrap that original plastic motor mount for an aluminum one that will accept the speed 300
