Thats pretty cool, never would have thought about using wheel hexes to hold down the batt. Also consider that there really is 0 stress on it clamping over the wheel pin, but on impact there will be some stress on it with your setup, make sure they wont come off..

I will test to see if it holds!

Neat idea, but not keen on the hex hubs to hold down the batts...

Just one last thing about this. I know that it will add weight to the car but sometimes when I'm just practicing I hate taping and re-taping the batteries in over and over again, so this is my lazy man's way of doing things. But, if this does work, talk about a quick change set-up for an enduro race. Maybe modify on side of the post for even faster battery change?

I didn't think the hex hubs was a good idea! But as fast as the wheels spin and as much banging around the tires put on the hexes, I figured this should hold. I tried putting some force on the hold down and they didn't even budge.

I've been talking to Jurgen about getting a spool made up, trying to work with him to design one thats made to give more steering than whats out right now. I dont know if he's interested in making more than one of them, but would anyone be interested in them, I can let him know theres a market if so.

Hi,

I used it as a starting setup in 19T on high grip carpet and it works well. Keep in mind it's for rubber tyres though.
