Not sure what you mean. Hobbico is a distributor not anything to do with mfg. or shipping. They may have dropped them as a distributor

So it can be done. Nice picture, I just don't see the benefit. It's still shouldn't change the flex characteristics front to back for the lower chassis (unless it's too thin). It would probably benefit the chassis more to remove the battery retainer and just tape the battery in place. The posts and carbon retainer reduce side to side flex.

I believe some other brands dropped hobbico as well.

Looks good, let us know how she runs

You might want to check your wires. From the photo it looks like there is very little slack which could restrict read pod movement

This isn't your first "rodeo" is it, Bard"

Can't wait to hear some reports from on-track impressions. Just really disappointed now that our local carpet track closed.
