No doubt Xray has the best manual out there. The worst I've come across is Serpent.

Three guys posted pictures. I am sure a lot more have had some denting. I am one example. Doesn't really bother me unless it gets much worse...and it probably will.

A bit of an update on the newer chassis, My brothers cars chassis is a different color from mine. Mine is more of a gold tint to it, where as his has more of a blue tint to it. I am getting pictures of his sent to email address later today. Hoping to get home in time to race at West Coast and get first hand shots.

Any word from Kyosho about us getting a updated chassis?
Or are we stuck with these ones with cut up t-plates?

The dented chassis does not hurt performance at all. Its purely cosmetic.

Personally, I prefer the minuscule bit of additional flex a thinner rear gives me :P

Making running changers is normal in all industries, and itīs better they are doing it as fast as possible if they discover something.
As i see it, this is not an big issue
