That's a great build!!! I love how low the motor is in the chassis, it should handle well.

It is actually an RC-Monster D8 motor mount and top plate mounted at 90 degrees. :)

Mike is correct^^

I took a different approach by mounting it in sideways. But in the end the motor is centered in the TVP's and it doesn't sit too high. I ran it this way for the last 2 summers without issue. (With Muggy parts)

It handles pretty well. The tires tend to roll around corners which is pretty funny to watch but it doesn't flip over.

On 6s it's a little nutty but on 4s it's fun. I will have to get some videos when the warmer weather arrives. Due for 8-10" of snow tomorrow.
