I went a little odd compared to most people.
I went for a saddle configuration, and I'm using a Castle 1717 motor. Before my twin 3S batteries got old, it was an insane monster. I love wheeling the truck around. But the batteries just can't handle the amp draw anymore, they are about 3 years old now.
Looks like all my picture links are dead in that thread and I don't want to go through it again.

You did a really nice job of this! Not easy fitting all that stuff in there HAHAHA
I was thinking about running the conversion kit backwards at one time but just never followed it though since I wasn't sure if everything would fit. I like the side by side thing because you can run thinner batteries and have an easier time find bodies that fit :)
So heres is a CRT that I built into a monster truck. Came out nice and is really fun to drive! I have a MT4 and thought it might be cool to make something like that out of a CRT. The RC-Monster kits are some of the best and I love the quality of the parts. I've used these kits in 3 conversions and have two more left to build
