Those link are pretty long. Which way does the battery mount, across the chassis or inline? Also does it still use side springs or do the links control flex like on the BMI cars?

Where's the new front end?

Both lipo orientation options are open
Side springs, yes

Initial build will be transverse, Bruce says it's the bomb

The new front end is right around the corner, Bruce said it took a lot longer then expected to get the moulds perfect... Not sure if he is going say who helped him, but lets just say.... Perfect means perfect with that company.

I have been running transverse in stock the last half of the season and it's been the bees knees! Seems to transfer quicker and also easier to drive fast

I just went to a Rev 7 with the old school front end. previously I ran a Associated 12R5. Do you have any details on this new front end from Speedmerchant? Are the upper and lower arms fixed or does the upper move like the 12r5?

Thanks

[QUOTE=oceanhighz;12466758]which model and what optional parts?[/]

Only option parts I use are the black aluminum steering knuckles and the black old school arm braces, other than that it's stock, I you want the setup I can give that to you too but it's pretty much the same setup as all the team guys run with the battery side to side

No setup necessary, was just curious. I was running inline with the sport version, just wondering about trying the transverse, as I hadn't done that. Thanks!
