Lost about 30g gonna have to add 10g somewhere.
The electronics are even more closer to the center since there is no plastic wall anymore.
Wonder how it will handle?

its def narrower than the eagle racing kit.

Can you please post a pict of the underside of the chassis and what was needed to do this mod? Maybe contact Exotek and see if they can offer a chassis layout similar to yours(being as how its more balanced, less clutter and just seems to be better balanced.)

between work, school, MW3 and my second child being due in 11 days, My time has been very limited. I have yet to race or weigh since I got the eagle racing conversion...

A great night racing today, first time since i got the car i have had 0 problems with it all night. First race i cane 2nd, by 6 seconds, 2nd race i WON and 3rd race came 4th, because dumb and dumber couldn't find the power switch when something went wrong electrics-wise. Only 2 laps behind 1st tho.

Nice.... thinking about getting either this or a TA05 ver. 2. Not sure about the dual drive system..... is it really better than the dual belt on the TA05?

We were running VTA on Wed. night, but we are probably both stepping up to 17.5 after the next race. (Going to Cali for TCS and TQ Raceway for the Friday night race on the 20th.)

Hey Franko!
I haven't heard if he is or not, I may have to call Kevin and see, that would be cool if he made it down. This is basically my bachelor party weekend, so it seemed like a good plan to head down for some racing!
I love my 06 so far, really fun to drive and I feel like I'm maybe 50% there to a good setup. Definately worth trying!

Car looks good Inpuressa, the Exotek conversion looks ace.

What servo mounts are they? Do they have threaded holes at the top and bottom of the mount?
