Modular battery tray and front shock mount for the SCX24. It is designed to be robust, lightweight, and easy to print. Total weight is 4.1g with the brace and 3.6g without it.
This will only work with the Team Garage Hack TGH-24X chassis. I say again, it WILL NOT work with the stock SCX24 frame rails.
On the lowest body post hole, the body will be lowered about 4.5mm. If you don't want your body lowered, you will need to raise the post.
The battery tray is for a stick pack, like the Lumenier 300mah or BetaFPV 350mah batteries. It WILL NOT work with a stock SCX24 battery.
The shock mounts may not clear large aftermarket servos, especially on a standard wheelbase SCX24. My test truck runs an Emax ES08MAII on a stretched Deadbolt (144mm).
- If you're printing in PLA or have an inaccurate printer, it's a good idea to drill out all of the holes with a 1.15 or 1.2mm drill bit to ensure proper fitment.
Start with the shock mounts. The forward screw should be slightly loose. The rear screw should be slightly installed for alignment purposes.
- Work on the battery tray. The front of the battery tray overlaps with the shock mounts. Pull up on the back of the battery tray before tightening the screws to avoid clearance issues with the driveshaft.
- Use one of the spacers to avoid the shock body rubbing against the mount. It's easiest to put the spacer on the shock hardware. They are sized for the stock M1.4 screws. If you're using larger hardware, you will need to source different spacers (e.g. metal or nylon washer) and drill out the holes in the mount (not recommended).
- The brace isn't necessary in all cases, but I included it for anyone who wants it. May be helpful if you're not running a front bumper.
Again, not for everyone, but maybe someone will find it useful.
