Started this a few weeks ago before buying any parts. Knew I wanted to change things up but not too much...I've been very happy with the PEDE as is for 2 years. First thing was to change up the chassis a little.
Last mod I did, one of them, was a 2" chassis extension. I cut a third piece to fill in the gap for now but will use 2 black chassis for the final build.
Next would be the placement of electronics. I removed the large plate that the ESC and waterproof receiver box were on. Removed the two tabs from the sides of the ESC and a piece of the chassis for the ESC to fit in the far back...and shortened the motor wires.
The waterproof box was too big so out came the liquid electrical tape... it now sits up front just behind the servo.
