Trans­verse Bat­tery Mount­ing

RC Car Action - - BUILT FOR SPEED -

The new chas­sis and mud­guards al­low for two dif­fer­ent mount­ing po­si­tions of shorty bat­tery packs. You can mount the pack in line with the chas­sis or across the chas­sis to fine-tune how the truck re­acts on the track. Hav­ing the pack mounted in line puts the bat­tery’s weight along the truck’s cen­ter­line, which makes for a truck that is more re­spon­sive when turn­ing. At the same time, that will also re­duce the grip that the truck has in the turns. Mount­ing the pack side­ways spreads the weight of the bat­tery out to the sides, and in the end, that slows down the truck’s re­spon­sive­ness and im­proves grip in the turns. The open­ing is large enough to run a brick or sad­dle pack if you choose to do so. When run­ning a shorty pack side­ways, you have the op­tion of us­ing slid­ing tabs in the bat­tery brace to lo­cate it front to back or you can use the in­cluded foam spac­ers to do it.
