See these pics.

Notch the chassis with a dremmel.
You may have to bend one metal battery contact forward just a little and the other you can cut into with the dremmel.
Notice in the 'Chassis' picture one battery tab is bent forward a little and the other tab is notched along with the chassis.
Then dremmel away some of the body mount or cut it away >carefully< with an exacto blade as I did..
Notice the triangle part dremmeled off the body mount in the picture of the body mounts.

I notice that you have the XMOD offroad tires. did you have to do anything with the PCB or motor for that ?

Yeah you either have to make a notch(its easy) or use the lexan. or just a credit card, cd case, same thing.

Heres the things i made. The front is shorter and the rear is a little long width ways <-------->

I used that method and it works great to lift BUT I think there is ONE potential problem. The thickness of the material offsets the distance from the gray plastic mounting arms. So the shock ends up at an angle and this causes more friction during the shock pistons travel because it is leaning more on the inside of the red plastic tube……does that make sense ?

I use the smallest pinion and stock motor so I feel comfortable the circuit pcb will be fine.

Dean that Pajero is sweet. What mods do you have on it?

BillH ,
For mods there is oil shocks and an X-Speed motor. That's about all. I'm sure it would benefit with bearings, but it's not for racing anyway.

BTW, its much better driving the truck 'overland' pavement with the big Xmod tires.

Yeah I second that, very nice Pajero! The X-Mods tires really add to it's good looks. Got any rear pics so that we can see the clearance under the your spurgear with those tires?

I have a set on my overland. They look great. Did you fasten them to the rim at all or just fit them over the rim?
