Default Cougar Laydown Lipo Brace 3D printed!

Made my own lipo brace that allows the cells to go further forward then the option part. If anyone wants one - I can print and post one with 2x o-rings for £10 - or collect from me at Batley etc for £8. You will need the hardware (long screws and a lock nut or similar. I just cut some old carbon sheet rot make the clamp as you cannot tighten the nut down onto the plastic printed part really. If you want to supply your own o-rings - I can post you just the brace and lipo post 'stops' for £8

These are printed with 100% material infill - so are as strong as a 3D print can be - basically solid plastic!

Cheers Adam.

If you want one with just holes in - let me know - I did print one for someone as they asked for it as theirs slipped in a 'crash' - happy to post you one with holes just for the cost of postage
PM me if you want one

Looking at Adam's car and the nice way its all 'prepped' i'd have guessed he's not a 'crasher'

Sometimes though shit happens - I hit a parked car on the straight at MB indoors and bent a new YZ2 chassis - so nothing is indestructible if you try hard enough

Yeah right! Managed to ram the car into the base of a ramp at Stone tonight!!

Ran the holder tonight and very happy with it, also fitted the square retainers directly behind the Lipo so I could retain a Lipo weight underneath!

Some gear mid-air overtakes too though

Cheers Andy, it seems fairly well clamped down to be fair, but might need to order a wing mount anyway, they look ace!
