Its a front motor mount with a battery tray, you will also need a front servo mount, and skinny servo horn.

Great looking truck!

Does the GRC front motor/battery tray conversion improve or hurt performance?

the gear is a bit slower and a lil louder but it gives you so much room and lowers center of gravity.i also got the v8 engine cover but youd have to cut out the hood and figure out the hinges and im not goin that route.

What foam are you running in those tiresa? They look too soft judging from how they squish.
