We have been running them for a couple of sessions, they seem to be working out well. They do decrease front track by 2mm in total, my feeling is that it gives a little more low speed steering. I haven't been experimenting with the additional camber link mounts yet, so no feedback on that yet.

We are running mid motor carpet, so the added durability is a great plus in my book.

Default Bman's +8mm Chassis

attached is photo's of my new chassis from bman. It is by far my favorite chassis and it is also my 4th +8mm. it lets me drive more aggresively and is super stable. the black hard-coat is stunning and pictures do not do it justice. Another dex driver at the track said it looks nicer then the tresrey chassis. The best part is, bman is extremely reasonable with his pricing and this is my least expensive +8 with exception to the dimec. definately wear a chassis protector to keep the stunning finish clean. its a job well done by bman indeed and i think his work speaks for itself, as well as the service he has provided us with his skids and now this chassis. Thank you!

**Also that is a standard dex210 proline bulldog mounted on +8mm. Always mount the rear in the stock hole and leave space up front for the 8mm addition. if you look close you can see the original lines around the chassis bushing, and how i cut just short of it.

I'm thinking in the next day or two. The anodizor told me to call on Tuesday. Glenn's chassis came from the first batch...

Just a heads up guys, I have new braces made for the rear inner camber ball mounts. We all know the ears break off and these eliminate this. Check them out on eBay for now. Will have them on the site by this weekend. I am also making front and rear skids to strengthen the +8 chassis. These are all for rear motor config and also fit the DESC210 and DEST210.

I rec'd a pair of Bman's chassis, and although I told him I wouldn't get to mounting them up right away, I couldn't help myself. The fit and finish was top notch, and everything went together as well as the O.E.M piece. Nice job Bman..(sorry for the crappy pics, when the camera get a charge, I'll get retakes)

I got my buggy on the track finally the other day and didn't make it 10 laps and broke the camber link mount in the tranny case. Looked around and saw a bunch of different mounts. Couldn't wait for one so I busted out the cabonfiber sheet and the dremal and made my own. It wasn't to bad. My mounts maybe off a little but I'm not a serious enough racer to really care if its off a hair. Maybe if I like it ill be the rcshox or tresrey one. Also my shocks felt very springy I'm running


Front
Dark red
6x1.3
Losi 30

Rear
Avid red
6x1.3
Losi 32.5

I made some 4 hole 1.4mm pistons and I'm gonna try tlr bb front blues and tlr bb rear pinks ????
Any ideas on shock oil.

I drilled out some 4x1.0 dual taper pistons to 1.3mm and filled them with 350frt/300 rear.. They felt really really good on an outdoor 1/8th track. Also used the White series springs Light blue front and dark blue rear.
