Default Relocated the batteries

Moved the batteries to the sides, made a simple tray that is mounted between the frame and lower skid plate and mounter 2 rc monster universal battery trays
to lower the CG a little. Going to try and get some videos

Nice handiwork, but that looks a bit dubious to me - in that the batteries look a bit vulnerable sticking out like that. I think I'd want them up front.. Or is there some other advantage to having them on the sides?

The batts are sitting in hard palstic cases and are velcroed in there, not in much danger or at least the same as a erevo or savage that has them mounted on the outside of the frame. I also lowers the CG of the truck.
