or get a pretty car that makes you happy meanwhile you'll be staring at the tailights as the jrxs blows by you.

LOL

I believe it is the different colors of the materials on the parts/hardware/anodisation which make you feel this...

That's what they said when the first horseless carriage was invented.

But you will now have the opportunity to place the ballast weights in the most effective location(s) on the chassis.

The potential for this car to transition through switchback and chicane turns will likely be better than anything else out there.
That's a major factor why formula cars are so fast through the turns.

I understand that, but when all that space is taken up by the electronics and battery you have no choice but to put that extra weight up high or out on the sides.

But on Matt's car that was only the two lightest electronic components...the LRP esc and receiver. Which is nothing (in weight) like the battery pack and motor as all other chassis layouts I know of.

There are two #4-40 screws at the front edge of the battery door panel to secure it in place to the bottom of the JRXS. They screws thread into the aluminum mid-car bulkhead.

It is basically a trap door design for six in-line cells. The door is basically the length of five cells. There is a minor amount of manipulation required for inserting the six cell pack in through the door and then securing it.

So is it such "tight clearance" that you have to direct solder your battery leads? ...I've been using those round tube connector deals for a while now, hate direct soldering

I'm with you on this point about direct soldering; but, I didn't look at that part of the chassis enough to determine if the round tube connectors would work.
