Default Heavy duty servo/battery tray

I'm looking for a heavy duty servo/battery tray for my scx10.2. Something heavy duty plastic of some sort or aluminum. The best thing I've found so far is bowhouse setup. Seems like it will hold up really good. Just not quite the setup/mounting I want. I've tried looking though some build threads and looked many places for something. Maybe I'm blind or just not looking in the right place. Does one have any ideas or links of a good place to look for a heavy duty servo/battery tray?

Why that? Everybody is trying to keep the cog low. Heavy duty must mean weight.

I recently installed the bow house mount on my scx10.2, and I couldn’t be happier. It simplifies the front end as a one piece design, and eliminates a lot of weak axial plastic.

My only complaint is that by the time I’ve upgraded the parts that bug me on my 10.2 chassis (servo mount/battery tray, sliders/side trays, aluminum shock towers, rear chassis brace, etc) i could have just bought a vs410 chassis kit for $110, saved money and possibly got better performance.

I used that Atomik rc servo and battery tray as well in my 10.2 . Huge improvement over stock setup.

I use a similar set up (samix) in my 10.2 and like it as well. Need to use a nice flat/skinny pack for the best benefits.

Sorry been absent from the forums for a bit. To much of working my ass off and other problems at home. I've been checking into the samix version for the battery tray and move the servo location with one of the samix front bumper/servo mounts.

I take it Topher builds that you used a front bumper/servo mount? If so did you also have to shorten the drag link/linkage at all from stock form?

So has anyone used the samix battery tray and servo mount? It claims it doesn't fit the raw builders kit. But from the pictures it looks like it should work.

Hey man no problem!

If you get a chance, could you put a battery on there and take a picture of how high it sticks up? I am thinking about getting one, but donít want to get it and it not work in my situation.

Hopefully you should be able to see what you need with theses pictures. If you need another view let me know. The atomic mount sits lower than the axial, or bowhouse. I didn't have any major issues with the mount. But the front driveline came really close to the rear corner of the mount so I chopped the ends off of the mount to give it a little more clearance with the driveline.
