Definitely a great looking car. Lots of adjustability.
Robbie - this is probably a good guess. We will ask the manufacture for clarification.

The front row of screws behind the front arms are clearly for the servo mounts. there are a bunch of other screw holes, above/beyond the shock mount and battery positioning.

Please keep the questions coming fellas...

If I were in the market for a new 1/12 scale, I would look hard at this thing. It looks pretty sweet.

Inline, 9650 bolted directly to chassis with the slotted mounts, slid all the way back. Go big or go home!
