Rebellion-RC BD9 MM mid-motor chassis conversion kit

RC-Carbonstore have announced their latest Rebellion-RC MM mid-motor conversion kit, this time for the popular Yokomo BD9 touring car. The main feature of the upgrade set is the patent pending sliding motor mount design that allows gear mesh adjustment through the chassis bottom, with the narrow design of the whole assembly ensuring the overall motor and battery width remains the same as in the “rear motor” standard car, creating a very centralised weight distribution and less unwanted chassis roll compared to current mid motor conversions. In addition the design makes for an ultra low centre of gravity while allowing integrated flex settings via up to seven motor mount screws. The sliding design also ensures a very wide gear mesh adjustment range, fitting up to 48T pinion and 114T main gears, making the conversion ideal for both stock and modified racing. The final specification of the kit now also incorporates several chassis stiffness adjustment areas that allow to brace the upper and lower deck in front of the rear bulkhead, and in front of the centre shaft – allowing to access complex chassis flex settings. Other features include the possibility to combine the aluminium colour options of black and orange with Rebellion-RC’s full range of carbon fibre twill colours. Not to be forgotten is a floating motor fan mount that attaches to the motor mount and that can be used with standard 30mm and 40mm fan units while not disturbing natural chassis flex. Included with the kit, that is completely made in Austria, also come high-quality Bando Kevlar belts as well as all needed screws and bearings. Not included however is the necessary Xray off-set main gear.
