I have a 2013 and the rear is very loose. I was reading the forum and was thinking about cutting the rear plastic chassis but I was wanting to make sure before I did this. Anyone have any pics or info on this please.

remove the rear bulkhead/trans case. remove the carbon shim in the front of it. Cut off the plastic piece on the tail of the chassis. lightly file the alum chassis in the corner where the front hanger will sit. only need a little bit for clearance. maybe 1mm or so. file the "curve" out of the rear "RR" hanger where it sat on the plastic and will now sit on the alum chassis. You will see what I mean when you set it down on the alum. the trans case will sit up a bit if you don't.

Use all the original screws and bolt it back together. Leave the carbon shim out. It's really pretty simple. once you get it apart you will see.

Are you also doing something about the lower "hump" on the rear hanger, after you take the rear plastic chassis piece out I would imagine it hangs below the chassis instead of being flush as before.

Quick question during build. They call for oil on the outdrive groove and inner diff oring. I can understand oil on the oring but the groove in the outdrive has always been lubed with black grease or maybe green slime. Any advice?

All the guys hacking the older chassis, how does it compare to putting the rear hinge pins at the lowest setting with the hinge pin inserts?

Or are you doing both, lowering the aluminum pieces and also using the lowest hinge pin inserts? Mines pretty hooked on right now on medium clay indoors with just the inserts. Thinking of buying the '14 holders but they are out of stock everywhere.

This might be just armchair engineering, but lowering the diff cups as well, at regular ride height (20mm for me rear), won't the dogbones be more at an angle. Do you guys compensate with higher ride height as well? Cos as it squats on power it will plunge more.
