Default Elaz EXO (full interior front seat )

Hi Guys,

This is my EXO,

I have relocated the Diff and Motor to the rear so I can make at least the front row seats a full interior detail. I swapped short and long center drive shaft then just drilled new holes and added spacer to give some clearance between gear diff and chassis plate. Made my own Alu hood and roof. Buld a brass roof rack. Its not done yet but Im near finish so I have confidence of posting. Battery is in the same location, Im now using 2500mah 3S battery but given right size (fatter and wider) lipo and it may still fit a 3000~3500mah 3S battery.

I really like the look. Seems like your stance is a little taller. Associated shocks up front? What are you running in the rear?

Very cool. Looks like your pretty handy with materials and tools. I'm not so brave :). The hood and roof rack look really good. I'd love to make a roof rack for the lexan body I got for my sand scorcher to hide the washers above the rear body clip but wouldn't even know where to start. Well done :). How easy was it to make the hood. Looks like a professional job. If I didn't have an exo and wasn't familiar with it, I'd think the hood was OEM its that good :).

Thanks the hood is just a diy no professional skill or tools used. I just used a 0.90mm thick alu plate and just use a metal sheet scissors to cut the shape out. I use the original hood to patterned a disposable paper plate the basic shape of the hood and mark the screw holes too. I then used it as template for the alu sheet. I just then cut a few millimeters outside my template so i can bend it (w/ pliers) as the lip on the edges.

Yes, its an associated shock but it came as a shock upgrade from my Old T-max so Im not sure if its the same that came from SC10's. The rear shock is stock I just use the fore front shock mounting holes on the rear suspension arms

Its custom made. The body is from Dare devil which I just painted to look like racing suit, the head is from HPI trophy truck. I use ball links on the neck to give me better neck articulation

If I would lift it up by passing a rod across the cage the CG is about half an inch from the center pillar of the cage forward so its pretty much right on the center. Maybe the weight I save from using small battery pack offset the transfer of weight of the diff and motor. What actually worries me is roll, having a high stance and extra weight of the roof rack makes it tipsy. It already rolled twice but thats the sticky tire biting the pavement from a high speed turn.

You got more weight back on this. For those of us not so much worried about scale. there might be a way to do this and get the nose dive part of this truck sorted out.

Transferring the weight to the rear will only make things worse really. Problem is not really the ballance of the car (although it could be a little better)..It the stock rear shock geometry that is causing the nose dive issue.
