This is just a mock setup using some plastic parts, soon alot of the weak points will be replaced with aluminum, a ball bearing diff is in order along with a custom lowered setup with oil shocks and fitting all the elecs. 8)

What size motor is that? Will that truck actually have enough weight to keep the motor from flipping it onto it's back inside the first foot? Props to you for figureing how to install it, good luck, can't wait to see more plus vid.

It is going to be lowered, and weighed down. Along with custom mamba settings and a driver mod.

The motor is a mamba 5400

Looking really good.... and glad to see you're back into mini-z monsters. I'm still enjoying the alloy bits that were salvaged from your last project :)

If your going to go brushless like that, I suggest getting the Carbon-Techniques carbon-fiber chassis kit they have for the Monster. I lost the link to their web site but I'm sure you know which company I'm talking about. They made some killer carbon-fiber chassis for Mini-Z's a while back. I was actually thinking about custom making an aluminum pan-type chassis for my new truck.

That has got to be REALLY fast! Great job on the clean installation of the motor.
