Default esc shelf mod

I decided to mod the esc shelf...minor modification but It lowers it by 8mm or so. I think this rig can use any and help possible to lower the cg since the cage sit's pretty high up.

So here is what I did;
1) reverse the shelf front to back so the shelf sits flush on the shock tower
2) cut one spacer into two 1/4" pieces
3) used 4/40X 3/4" front screws and 4/40x 1/2" back......Done!

Maybe this has been done before but I didn't see it.

Good idea!
Do the holes line up properly?
They seem further apart on the one end than on the other.
Guess I'll have to go find my calipers.

Can you tell the difference while driving?
I can hardly imagine that, at least with the RS Pro (rated at 2.3oz including wires) I use.
But hey, it's a free mod, so why the hell not, right?

And yes, pics would be nice!

you can also use the T-plate as well and mount your esc and receiver to it. Hole line up perfectly, just need to trim spacers. Looks good and it keeps it clean

I did this mod but not sure if it's worth it. Also, you can't run the sway bar if you do this mod. Ended up going back to stock.
