Played with the sporty yesterday and all I can say is WOW! Had this car pulling lines the Agent has trouble with. I did end up putting on the knuckles weights and so far the car is weighing in at 4# 11oz. rtr. If anyone is on the fence getting this chassis it is well worth it!

Nice rig...

Do you have any pic with all the electronic fitted. Just want to see how the central servo position affect the rest of electronics.

I still need to get around to shortening some wires but this will give you an idea where everything is mounted.

Nice work Chris.

How are you finding the side mounted battery. Does it have much effect on the handling? What do you think of the RC Bros packs?

The side mounted battery only weighs 1.7oz so and I havent noticed any negative effects on putting it there, if anything it helps to even out the weight of the motor some. I really like the RCBros batteries and they have been working great. The 450's last a long time in the sportsman and I can get about 2 coarses out of them in the XR10 and maybe around 3 with the sportsman.

Yep. Trying to find a good source of 2mm carbon fiber now. Once I do, It will be an option.

That truck is looking good. I've seen a few people running that same style battery mount with great success.

I just switched to the side mount battery on my truck Saturday night and at our series comp on Sunday, it cleaned house. I noticed no negative effects.

Congrats! It does work well mounted on the side. Im still amazed that a sportsman can do what this car does, they have definately come a long ways from just a few years ago and this chassis is the main reason why.

Great truck! I was wondering what kind of servo mounts those are and where I can get some?
