Just about finished up this off road McQueen! Custom shorty swb chassis and some trick parts for the center braces/battery strap holders coming soon! This thing runs 2 of the shorter center drive shafts instead of one short/one long. I cannibalized a new Outcast EXB bought new off the horizon sale and swapped talion towers and shocks on. Motor fitment was an issue and it looks like the 4s outcast/kraton should just barely fit. I’ll keep it on 4s unless Curt tweaks the chassis to work with the motor faced to the rear. Right now there’s too much binding in the front drive shaft if you flip it. I ordered 2, one for this thing and one for the on road version coming soon 👍🏻 also slapped 4s kraton tires on it. I was trying to make it work on outcast towers but it wasn’t looking right hence the extra holes in the body. I’ll run this one til I get used to it and then I’ll cut up a new one.

Yeah the center diff should be more towards the rear like on a Tekno, there is so much wasted space between the esc and the motor.

Yea it looks great, but I have a feeling it’s gonna be nose dive city with all that weight on the front

It’s a little motor, May not be too bad at 3668. I figure it’ll be a backflip machine though

Could you swap the 2 pieces of the center diff/motor mount so the motor was on the same side, but closer to the back? And then just flip the actual center diff around?

If you swapped them around the motor would be over where the battery will go. For whatever reason the diff sits closer to the front if you do that though. It should be noted you can’t use an exb center diff in this setup, it’s slightly longer. The motor mount w would have to be faced with the diff bearin grooves inward no matter what I think unless you made a custom mount too
Length comparison to a standard swb 6s truck running 4s outcast wheels/tires

He is going to be selling them soon. We've been messing with it for a while now. He updated the top braces to be one piece now. I'm still the test mule with fitment and everything. He was 3d printing them at first and is cutting them now. I have another for my on road mcqueen and he has one he used an outcast as the donor for everything else as well. On my old cut and welded shorty chassis made out of a stock one i had the esc on top the center diff case. I am willing to bed you could almost fit a receiver box between the esc and motor on this verson. I am going to see if i can on the off road truck and will just put the receiver on top the center diff on the on road one probably.
