I think that with those side guards he may have to use the mbx5r body... Seems to wide for the mbx6 lid.

Hey guys for those that are using the Proteck Lipo receiver pack, I know they fit snuggly but is there any room to surround the battery pack with foam? If not does anyone know of any other Lipo packs that will fit better with room to cover it in foam?

I have Foam surrounding my Protek LiPo's and a very thin layer of rubber at the bottom to help stop it moving

They're carbon, I'd assume they're custom-made.

I'm not a weight-weenie I'm just curious to know the weight because of all the measures he took to lighten it.

went and did some more testing today with the mbx6, My car is super dialed now. 2nd day on the track and Im about a 1/2 second faster than I was with my rc8. Car has amazing steering on and off power and jumps perfect. I have changed the stock setup some. Im running full droop, 3-5-2 diffs middle hole on the tower front and rear shocks, rear arm spacer in the front of the arm. I did alot of tire testing today also. I have found at my track that m3 bowties are the hot ticket. I tried, aka soft cityblocks, gridirons, m3 crimefighters, they all felt good but bowties seemed to provide the most traction and stability. if anyone is struggling with setup I recommened trying my setup, it is very stable and easy to drive.

Shameless picture whoring, all that's left is breaking in the motor. I designed the scheme and did the tin work and rivets, thanks to Jer7469 for shooting the rest of it for me. All Faskolor paints, even the panel lines:

Just a fellow racer painted it for me... Jer7469, he's posted in this thread a few times. I drew and painted the panel lines and the metallic silver parts, then drew on the outside of the body the general design I wanted, bought him some Faskolor and let him have at it.

I do want to get my own airbrush but it's not in the budget for quite a while
