this is going to be long journey before I get this car to run. My set-up will be plain and simple with no hidden tricks . I've started building mine last night after hearing that there will be other body design coming up soon in the market. I am not going for the speed record here, just to have fun bashing at any empty parking lot or streets in my neighborhood. Can't decide yet if I want to go with traxxas stock spline driveshaft or tekno cvd along with their 17mm adapters, well see.....
here are some pics as of now
looks like I can go as big as 5692 BL motor
more pics coming as it progress

Yes, you can run a 5692 if you move the battery cups forward, but that really limits battery selection. The 5682 fits with the battery cups all the way towards the rear.
Looks good man. I was wondering if anybody had experimented with the Tekno stuff. I'm going through axles like crazy now.
The Annihilator....fastest XO-1 on planet Earth.
I'll take your word and get the 5682, that way I can save up that space for later use with larger batts.
little update: I have a very good experience with Tekno CVD's, so I went ahead and order a set of M6 along with their 17mm adapters.

Dude I always love your builds. I have yet to bust my Traxxas CVD's of course I havent put a whole lot of power to them though.
I know you are a huge fan of Tekno. I have a set on my MMM 2650kv Sl4sh, which have done an excellent job holding up to power. I'm curious and interested at the same time at how well these will work out for you.
BTW what happened to your profile pic?
Another build on the go...nice . I will be following your thread.
Rock n Rolla !
Did you order the wrong ones?
Ah that stinks.
That's good they are taking care of you.
Also joining the 8S club here. Leopard mounted and esc mounted to chassis. Used thermal paste on the underside of the esc and turn the aluminum chassis into a giant heat sink
Yea it's a good fit if you take out the plastic case, it's actually perfect with the battery mount in the original position too. New 5682 will be here tmrw for my third chassis. Will mount this one with the battery tray in its original position.
lol yea hopefully the arctic silver will transfer most of the heat to the chassis. Chassis is constantly being cooled while driving anyways. We'll see though

You should still be able to fit some kind of fan on the esc.
Which mount is that for the 5682?
