Well after seeing how much the fiberglass flexes with the top plate off while working on the car I definitely want graphite. It was giving our newer driver a little hassles while working on the car. But even without that I'd get it just because it is graphite.

Ohh man, I am def gonna upgrade!! Do they have it as a whole kit?

Also, I have a low profile servo, and I would like to know what aftermarket servo stay works. Does the tamiya hop-up blue one work? Is tamiya blue the same color as 3racing blue?

When I get home I will be e-mailing 3Racing to see if they plan on having a kit with the graphite instead of the fiberglass.

That isn't the same one 3Racing is coming out with...looks like someone took the stock chassis and had one cut. If 3Racing wasn't coming out with their own you could probably send a stock chassis to Penguin RC and get one cut for less than half that.

Haha, funny that someone found my ebay post about the carbon chassis !!!

its is not from 3racing but from a UK company specialize in carbon RC chassis.

It is indeed pricey and hope that 3racing will release one for less then $80.

Well considering the 3Racing chassis kit for the F201 had machined bulkheads and stand-offs and sold for $65...I would guess this one would be around $60

not that Easy--hell it's impossible--I 'd order one or two from anywhere --if I could find 'em.
I have zip ties holding my front mount together--and race it that way just about every week.

I just heard back from 3Racing...the carbon fiber chassis will be an upgrade only. There is no plans for a kit containing that chassis right now. At least that was my understanding...language barrier may have had that interpreted wrong but that's what I got out of it. Also the knuckles and caster adjusters are being made right now so should be available soon.
