This is a Front LiPo Battery Mount for the MST CFX-W Rock Crawler. It will let you place a small 3S Lipo battery over the front axle, right after the bumper, moving the batterys weight more toward the front.
This mount is attached through the 2 holes in the Bumper Mount (Part #230019). It has two poles and half moon poles that fill that space to keep in steady. You need two M2x10mm screws which should have come with the kit. They are the same little screws that hold the Body post in place. If not availalbe, you will need to purchase some.
**The Pictures above Show the First Version, which was Taller. You will recieve Version 2, which is half the height, I realizied and noticed there wasn't much reason to have it so tall, plus, it reduces the cost of the print.
Why I designed this:
I wanted to go with a smaller battery to reduce weight, while at the same time adjusting the wieght balance towards the front. Since there aren't many brass options for this Kit, and also to change its weight bias toward the front while keeping it light.
Additional Items Required for Installation:
2 x - M2 x 10mm Screws (for screwing the Battery Mount to the Crossmember [part#230019])
- The Lipo Used in the Picture is a Small 3S 1500mah Battery by GoldBat. Its size is shown on the pictures. Please make sure your battery is that size, or it may not fit (there is a limited amount of play inside).
- This mount was mounted on the JP1 Kit. I needed to remove the top screw post that held the Grill to the Body. There was no significant drawback to this. the Grill and Lights stay in place just fine.
- It seems that this mount will also work with the CMX and CFX Models (using cross member part 230019), but it all depends on the Body you are using. Please look and make sure a small battery would fit in that space.
