View Full Version : Flipping LRP Blast's chassis for front-motor config?

Hi guys,

I want to ask if anyone has tried successfully flipping the chassis around so the motor is in the front (for the better center of gravity). I know that Blast's chassis is symmetrical at both ends (identical diff boxes). So I assume it is possible :)

Maybe just the steering servo position and battery tray would be a problem. But this could be solved by drilling new holes for servo and trimming battery tray to push it back a little for the servo to fit.

Thanks for answers :)

i would say theres more than that.the motor would be in the way of the steering assembly..im not too familiar to the blast but by looking at the pictures of it on google...i would say its possible but a long job as you might have to make your own steering assembly.

I'd take a look at how the Kyosho ZX5 FS2 steering works - the motor is right up front in that car too.
