You don't know this but it is so much better then trying to glue them in place and not making a mess with CA. Also I have had issues with the glue not even holding when trying to change droop...This is a good change. It does stink the chassis isn't just made this way.

I'm not sure but with a needle file it shouldn't take long to put in. The chassis I did yesterday already had it, the other one I did was an alloy chassis which is ready cut for these.

The way I did it was to file the new cut in until I could see it (this took about 10-15mins each hole with a 1.5" long file -.-). Then try and push the insert in a little with my thumb. If I couldn't get it in then I used a watch makers screwdriver and slid the insert onto it and supported it on the handle. This way it was easier to keep it straight whilst applying some force. If I could not get it in like this I filed some more. Once it was in a little way I turned the chassis over and pressed down on it, on a hard surface, until it went it.

When the insert is seated fully pop the grub screws in and slice off any insert sticking out the other side.

If it wasn't for the filing it's much faster build, more reliable and tighter than glueing in the round ones =]

It doesnt have to be super accurate, just enough to fit the p06-1 in

I notice there are two aluminum chassis listed. C01AL and C01AL-H. Are there any identifying features that differentiates one over the other?

ok I'm at step 6. and if I use the SF3x8 for the AT21's the screw is too long. if I use SF3x6 it's about right, but AT21 still spins freely for the rears. I know the front uses a SH0.5 spacer, and should take up the free spinning. am I doing something wrong??

According to the mothersite, the H is hard coated.

6mm counter sunk screws should work fine without spacers. That's what I have with the carbon and alloy chassis, I run without spacers front and rear.

I should be able to start a 3rd EVO build next week... Going to be able to do these in my sleep soon =] Such nice cars to build, I wouldn't mind doing 1 a week xD

Yes I know it's hard coated but is there an identifying feature that differentiates the normal from the hard. I was hoping color or texture.

Hard coating of C01AL-H chassis is true black.

Is there any advantage of getting the hard coated chassis in term of "abrasion resistance" in comparison with the normal alloy one?

Can we have pics of both to well see the difference of colour?

Will Freddy and Viljami use the alloy chassis this weekend at the ETS? Have any of you already used the alloy chassis on asphalt? Better results than carbon one?

Thanks for all,
Best regards,
G-rem

Hard coated chassis ( hard anodized) is much more "abrasion resistance" of course.
The pics will be available soon. But "black" is the black and the regular alloy chassis has the same colour as all our "dark gray titanium" alloy parts.

Freddy and Viljami will not attend this weekend at the ETS.
Both are very busy at their main jobs at the moment.

LRP TCM will be the next race for Freddy and Viljami.
