What would be the main benefit for this type of mod? I have a similar chassis, but not that narrow..

well ,during the race , I've noticed the bottom of my stock chassis is rubbing on the carpet...So If I could narrow chassis it will solve my problem...
If you read pages back ,there was a person names martin C. who did his done and it works great...lot of new high end TC are come with narrow chassis are standard...

btw it is not the cexf
I also have bell crank custom made as well .

EJ had a handful made, a few of us locals bought some. Just switched over will try out this weekend. EJ seems to like it. I believe he's at the snowbirds and running the narrow chassis

Do you grind the bumps off the bottom of your batteries?

I know they do exist, but I have never seen a battery yet that has any bumps on the bottom. I'm sure if you only had those kinds of batteries, then yes, you would need to cut the bumps off to use a chassis that doesn't have the cutouts for the bumps, like those prototype narrow ones.

To everyone running the Side Piece Racing Mira Outdrives and XRay 50mm ECS. We have found out that adding a 1mm shim behind the spool cups helps prevent any plastic blade breakage. If you do have a blade break though these super tough outdrives just take it w/o wear .... but don't forget to change the blade for the next run!

Any advantage of running the shorter 50mm as oppose to the 52mm? That would eliminate the need for the shim.

The Venom batteries in the dark green transparent cases have bumps. 8 of 'em!
