I was wondering where you got the carbon fiber battery strap and posts from?

That´s the old Xray 6-cell battery strap. Works very good.

If your speedo has no motor limit, definetely the motor's gonna go first.

I'm guessing it's a direct bolt on?

Customworksking,

I'm hoping to get over your way sometime soon myself. Are you going up to Scotty's next weekend for the All Star race? I'll check with Nexus and see if he's willing to come down. Tom told me that Alan is getting new carpet.

I run the Xray six cell strap. It kinda is a straight fit on. What I had to do was where the thumbscrew is, I had to remove it, and shave the strap a little bit, because the strap is about 2mm too long. Once you have shaved a little bit of carbon fibre from the groove where the thumbscrew sits in, it works great. I also put some foam on the underside of the strap to hold the batteries in snuggly.

Just got MY MSX today and Pro Module kit. I am just going to do the MSX conversion for now and see the difference. THEN, I will give the Pro Module a whirl and see how it goes. Should be VERY interesting

For the XRay strap mod you also need to drill screw holes in the tape slots so that you can use the countersunk screws for the battery strap, unless of course you want some sparks while you race.

I did find the strap a pain to fit.. I had same problem with it being too long.. What you really need is some sort of collar to hold it better..

I also have some foam on the underside.. it took quite a few trial run before my batteries started popping out... Oh and DO NOT be tempted to place the strap anywhere but dead centre... (I tried it further on the outside where it was easier to mount... and the cells just flewwww out)

Do you use 4mm clamp with spacers or 6mm clamp without spacers?

nickhalstead - Re Battery strap: I think it totally depends on how much you file the chassis. I have NEVER EVER had a battery come out of the car completely, the closest would be a quarter out but that's with no foam and with a few chassis plates that I've had, all 2.5mm MS chassis.

Tral - I use 5mm hexes typically.

Just put the MSX together. Like EVERYONE has said, the parts are machined extremely well and it just fits together nicely like a good jigsaw puzzle. I just need to alter the position of my speedy a bit at it hits the bulkhead as is and my wiring should be changed a bit to be at its best for the new chassis.

I'm looking forward to running the beast! :-)
