Several of the guys at our local track (myself included) have ground the center brace all the way to the middle. The battaries won't hit the drive shaft. It helps even more if you take material out of the battery slots to lower the battaries in the chassis. My cars at the track now (we have permenant pit areas), I'll post some pictures of it this weekend. I have the fan, ground center brace, lowered battaries, NTC3 rack, ect.

Can I recommend a idea for the Warpspeed chassis:

*batteries moved over close to the shaft
*Center brace like the Kai style
*Options to use the NTC3 or the factory TC3 steering.

I was considering making a chassis but if these ideas could be used it would be killer.

What does using the NTC3 rack do for the car? Does it give it more ackerman, or...?

Thanks

Come on, guys, don't be shy. I did mine with a Mighty Mini Dremel and about 3 different attachments. The hard part was getting the batteries to sit low and wait for the batteries to recharge.\

Howz the flex with the center brace cut out? Are you guys running a top plate to compensate?

I checked (by hand) before and after and it felt about the same. The chasis bows a bit anyway even before milling. Try it and watch the shaft and front input cup.

I'd like to get or make a brace, but I'm not sure if there is a benefit outside mod carpet class.

BTW, I drove the car in the street for one pack and it seemed better than before, but it's hard to tell until I get it to the track. Still need to leave the transponder where is was though.

I am also running the rear tower in front, locked dif, shocks out on the tower, blue front/silver rear springs, 30 wt oil all around, all links up and in.

Thanks for info. Carpet mod is what i race each week with brushless, so chassis flex has pretty notable effect.
But i'll try it on the spare chassis.
