It features a purpose designed nylon bracket / holder for all components, like the 2 saddle Lipo packs 4800 or even higher capacity cells, the speedo and the receiver. The large high power BL motor is securely mounted on a sturdy alu motorplate between the rear 2-speed bracket and the alu radioplate support.
