a clamping aluminum version.
Battery space mount and weight balance
The battery is mounted perfectly in the center line of the car. In case of using
a Shorty-pack, it can be moved to front or back to play with weight balance.
Pieces of hard foam are supplied to do so and secure the battery in position.
The carbon fibre battery-top-brace has a secure quick release system with handy
twist nuts and acts as a chassis stiffener too. The flex can be influences by
using 2 small grubscrews. When using the upright transmission, the Shorty can
also be mounted longtudinal .
The limited slip ball differential is a super compact, effective and durable
unit. Utilizing 1.8th inch diff balls for ultimate durability. The structure
and assembly is common type in this class, but the high quality parts and well
functioning make it stand out.
