I want to see some pics! I wonder how this will hold up and if it will get tweaked and bend a little if you were in a hard crash. (I know there are reasons not to have say aluminum arms and such because of that.) How thick is this thing? Is it black, silver, or the brown color? I think it will look bad a$$ and I can't wait to see it, some one post a picture already!

The Aluminum chassis is lighter than the CF one !!! Wow... I guess it raises the CG then.... Interesting...

Less weight at the bottom chassis level raises the CG, while more weight there lowers the CG.... It's obvious.... I think the aluminum has the flex that they're looking for on that track....

Transmission, motor, battery, all electronics are 1mm lower on alloy chassis as it has 2mm thickness only ( compare to 3mm of carbon chassis).

Interesting idea to use aluminum chassis, while others try to add more flex... Maybe it's only for high grip tracks?
