this hasn't been a big problem for myself or others running the cuda's - but has happened. its not like this happens every run or even at an event - it took or takes a BIG crash for this to move and normally something else may have moved or broken too.

i did this as a prevention or just in case type thing..... just want to be clear here on this.

the cuda is a strong car and the type hit to move this under racing conditions with my old losi would shatter suspension parts.

Here is a Pic of the Xenon One thats on Randmans car..

whats nice about the Xenon one is that it can be use on both sides of the car if you decide to upgrad to a chassis that has the batterys on the othere side...Like a PAL version..
