I'm actually looking a getting the MRE just for outdoor racing. Although I'm going to waiting and hear some feedback on how the new sterring rack works on carpet....
Just checked the tamiya page, and doesnt note the amount of milling, but it must be 1.5mm, as they say it lowers the suspension and geometry back to standard locations. So going from 4mm high chassis to 2.5 (std chassis thickness).
If i set it up properly, clamping the std MRE chassis against the 4mm chassis, shouldnt be too hard to get it right. but ill be sure to cut the new hole much smaller and then 'widen' the hole to match the location perfectly. Well thats the theory anyway...
