Hi Guys, Everything is in production. Just waiting for the main alloy parts to come in otherwise I'd have some sneak peaks worth showing you all. EX06 launches in a few more weeks Just in time for Santa!

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

How do you take the battery off the chassis. There is no room for that move.
The only way see is that you have to take the upper chassis of the chassis.

There is plate on bottom of chassis. Remove that plate and the battery falls out through bottom... I believe that is the same way as the TM E4RS chassis.

Sorry for asking so many questions, I just bought a ta06 pro and want to get a graphite chassis
My yokomo bd was also secured by tape, but to me, it seems like the cheap way out. There are no recesses to hold the battery, it's all reliant on the tape. Atleasr with the tc6 and the bd it has recesses to hold the battery and the tape just keeps it from flying out. The design on the chassis mentioned above relies on not only on tape holding eh battery, but also keeping it from moving at all.

What servos are you guys running on your cars for racing application.
Since I damaged my Futaba S9451 I am looking at SAVOX 1257TG?
