I had all the early Xrays. I did a slim version with 3 cells under the belt and the 3 up front by the belt.

With this chassis the battery is under the belt too.

I'm not sure about the 007. I think the 008 is the same. I would need to see the car. Or the chassis at least. Does the 007 use the same gear boxes as the 009?

Hopefully from me at some point soon.

I don't have an 009 in front of me, but I believe that the gearboxes are slightly different, at least the rear where the motor mount is. But, on your conversion you aren't using the stock motor mount, which is why I'm wondering how easy it would be to adapt to a 007.........

I use the standard front and rear gearboxes. And my own motor mounts. Is the motor mount, one piece with the rear gearbox?

Thanks.
Just checked. They do a 501mm and a 507mm but no 504mm.

On the 007, the motor mount also holds the layshaft, along with a piece opposite of it to hold the other side of the layshaft, but they are independent of the rear bulkheads/"gearbox". The rear bulkheads are fastened to the motor mount/layshaft mounts with a rear upper deck, so it is not a one-piece.

That is a neat design. Good job! If you do release it, let us know the conversion cost. That narrow platform would transition great in a tight technical track. Also, on a large flowing track, this could maintain better corner speed.

In that case it will either go straight on or need very minor changes to make it fit. I have just found out a friend of mine still has a 007. I will be able to have a good look tomorrow.
