My bro-in-law has that setup on his TT01; for the $80 he paid - it's a good setup. It also came with a program card (I had to buy an additional castle link for my ESC). A 2S LiPo pack gives it great speed and a good amount of runtime.

Default Battery Tray

[IMG][/IMG]

My solution for the stock battery tray. A piece of sheet plastic and miscellaneous hardware. Seems to work well and easy to swap batteries. Prototype is a little rough looking but its not a beauty queen to start with.

Default another battery holder option

I purchased an AE battery box as previous posts suggested and added smaller velcro strips as hold downs. The plastic hold downs were tricky to fasten with thicker batteries (such as my 7-cell hump pack). The velcro straps make it way easier to replace batteries. I'm using 1 AE battery cup along with the stock battery holder, minus the plastic screw down tabs.

Is there a sway bar set available for this car? If so, can someone pass along the part#?

Looks like I could just remove the screw on plastic retaining bars for the stock battery holders and use velcro. The Associated would probably be lighter, but for the bargain hunter that I am, it looks like the velcro would work. Any reasons you know that it wouldn't?

it should work - that's how I have the rear holder on my JL set up. The only thing about the stock holders, the weakpoint of the holder is where the hinged part is attached with the screw. It can break if the battery pack tends to shift forward and back.

velcro strips can be tucked under the stock holder to secure the pack down:

If the HPI 200mm AAR Cuda is allowed in VTA; it fits fine. The body is 210mm @ the rear and 200mm up front. I managed to fit a +9 rear wheel and a +6 front wheel. I would suggest a 0 front and +6 rear for better clearance.

macavant - Thanks for the information. Your cuda looks great! My concern is that the rear vintage tires are 31MM. But. I'll check it out.

MD - if you're a GM fan - the Camaro body by HPI is also a 200mm front / 210mm rear. The DeTomaso Pantera is also the same way; 200/210.

Md,

A word of caution. While these guys are answering your question correctly, some of the parts they are recommending are not USVTA legal. Make sure you know what is allowed before you order.

Does anyone know if an ABC genetic front one way will fit in the JL10e? I know they have some parts that look similar. Just wondering if the front diffs are the same or just similar looking.
