yeah.....not sure how many oval guys here....I might end up being good, but it is not something I will go out and get right away. 3 gear MM is not new to offroad and for the most part is not very popular

This may sound like a silly question, but for you guys that use chassis protectors . . . what do you use to cut out the holes to access the screws on the chassis? Do you simply use an Exacto knife, or is there some track to cutting perfect circles out around the screws?

If you run an E1D chassis protector, you can peel and stick it to access screws.

I bought this carbon fiber wrap adhesive from Auto Zone and installed it on my chassis. I had to trim it to fit after it was on the chassis, so it's covering some of the screw holes and it already on, so the hole punch won't work at this point. I thought maybe someone had a neat trick for when it's already on. I've been using an exacto knife, but the holes come out pretty jenky that way

Sorry, did not know that it was already mounted. I usually use a brand new exacto blade in that case.

No worries, I didn't give a lot of detail when I asked. I guess I'll go back to a fresh exacto blade when I have to remove any screws.

With regards to the MIP tranny-
Are there any modern ESC's that can't reverse the rotation of the motor? That's the only reason I can think of to not put the motor plate on the left side of the car.
Either way I really like the look of it, I definitely plan on getting one to test MM3 on my B5.

yeah, some esc's can motor reverse, but it gets all goofy with the timing on sensored motors.

Why would you want to reverse the motor rotation?
