Forget about my last post.....so, the inline layout FIT or not FIT the M18...? I knew you cannot use the stock battery holding clip/board to hold down the chassis........but you can try using strapping tape.........as long as it hold the batteries, I care the less about the look.

Also, what about the stick layout....(like 7.2V starter box stick batteries layout)............I thought that might be able to hold the battery and still able to use the stock battery holder.

Also....go try mount the BB.....they might work.
Thanks for all the report.........I am sure that will help others here.

Rookie, As far as I can tell the 2/3a cells you run are going to make the difference in battery placement. I know SuperK got the stick pack to work with the stock holder but with the smaller HeCells which are only 27.5mm long. I tried it with my 29.5mm Kan cells and they would not fit even with the stock hold down removed. The inline pack did work however and is how I am going to be running my Xray for now untill the saddle pack chassis hits the stores. As far as I am concered no battery compares to the Kan cells and that is all i will run!!

I did try to fit the BB but it didn't fit the stock motor mount. I do however have a friend that used a cut down version of the MRS4 BB motor mount and then drilled holes in it and mounted it to the Xray motor mount and he is now running the BB in his Xray. He told me that the rear diff seemed to loose for the BB but the rear ball diff will fix that. I am also going to research a way to make the rear diff adjustable like the front diff today using front diff parts in the rear! It looks like it will work perfect......I hope.

Rookie by the way, great work on the rendered pics!!

My list of items needed!!!

Front oneway
Rear ball Diff
Graphite chassis
Speed 300 motor plate


That's all I can think of for now!! Feel free to add to the list!

I replaced the pin in the rear diff today with the shaft, two black washers, screw and spring from the front diff and now the rear diff is fully adjustable like the front! I think it will make the car handle speed much better!

I just built mine over the weekend. Does the rear toe-in seem excessive? The car wanders quite a bit in low traction surface.

Servos:

I'm using the 3pk with the HRS receiver currently. The HRS receiver requires a digital servo. Anyone have any thoughts on which servo might be best here.

The JR DS368 should fit perfect but it has 2 servo mounting tabs instead of the one like the HS81

The Futaba 9650 won't fit with the servo mounting blocks but it has horizontal mounting tabs that may work.

I'm debating ordering both and trying them out. I just refuse to purchase the HS81. I've had far too many problems with Hitec servos finding a center.

The JR D368 is awesome... just put some spacers under the stock servo mount blocks to fit it.
