cheers, i made it from a bog standard racer kit TC3 it took a very long time almost a year, only working sats kinda sucked and i got the warpspeed of sombody off this very site alot of people say that modding the TC3 doesnt work, but i woked from the outside in, hubs, then steering blocks, wishbones etc it took ages but i found it helped, now all i gotta do is find a motor that doesnt cook easily lol but it is expensive as i found about 250 quid maybe more for all the hop ups inc warpspeed

question, when you make the cuts to move the battery closer to the shaft as well as making cuts in the chassis between the cells, how much does that reduce the stiffness of the chassis? i run carpet so should i get the irs stiffening kit?

Yes the chassis looses some of its stiffness. The IRS stiffening kit should solve that problem.
