i'm thinking that if you use a VXR lipo like me, they are rather short, so if a machinist could make a brass tray with weight behind the battery and infront of it, that would be the perfect battery tray i wish i had a CNC machine

Way to go Team Xray, taking 1st and 3rd in the A-main way to represent, not to mention all the other Xray drivers that made it to the A-main making it the most represented car in the A-main field...

does anyone make a 100gram battery tray? ...serious? anyone?

also the hard bumper is some 25 grams heavier than the stocky

Where did you get the titanium pivot balls?! Did they fit correctly? I've installed the Serpent onces but those are a little bigger...

I also use the serpent ones with the nylon locknuts from serpent, heated the inside op the upright so they formed to the pivotball.

hey guys, I have access to very good titanium pivot balls and T6 3mm Chassis. These are OEM in China ( but not GPM or 3 racing). The Chassis material from US. The Ti pivot ball weight 2.15g each.

Both the chassis and pivot ball was used at the weekend Big Race in China and TQ / finished A1

http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=206332

Anyone interested, please PM me.
