I had to space up the strap-stands 4-5mm and I use velcro underneath the straps. It held up to a beating this weekend..

Also relocated the belt tensioner to the chassis and mounted it to a shortened servo post so the belt clears the Lipo. Does anyone know If I can grind the faux-cells off the bottom of the hard case?
The belt tensioner idea is slick...it is a must-have item as far as I am concerned, and that is a super clean way to mount it even if you don't need it for belt clearance on the lipo. As far as the humps go, how much clearance is there between the top deck and the lipo? I don't think grinding them off is a good idea, plus according to IFMAR and ROAR tampering with the case is illegal. I'm surprised that Intellect pack has the humps...I'm running the 4200 saddles (which I have run through hell and back with over the summer and are still as strong as the day I bought them) and they are flat on the bottom. Also I like how you used the lower bumper mount on top as well...was that done out of necessity or does it just work better that way? I've gone through 3 upper mounts to 1 lower mount, but using the lower up top looks bombproof.

Rocky has ben running the Intellect brand saddle pack in his FK04 with good results. Another alternitive is to run a brick pack sidways against the rear bulkheads as seen a couple of posts prior to yours. As to C rating anything 40C and up will be fine. Love the FK04

Default T1 04 and 05 Stuff for Sale

Hi, wondering if there is any interested in FK04 or 05 stuff. I've to enough parts to build four cars (2 of each) and lots of parts to support. If there's an interest I'll put together pics and post them here in the For Sale section of the form. Rather do that than Ebay. Please LMK.

The front bumper mod has worked really well. It's just bolted to the upper brace.

Believe in the kit, they gave 3 differant horns. A 23,24, 25 spline horns. For a Hitec horn look for a 24 spline horn.

Good luck!
