Default xxx-s chassis milling

Is there anyone out there that mills XXX-S chassis. If so who and how can I get a hold of them. I would like to see some of their work also.

Thanks,
Greg

Hope I'm not too late to help. I would definitely caution against usin oval car bodies on a touring car. The monte carlo in particular is asymetrical and designed only to be effeicient when turning left. And the new dodge from protoform is even worse with some of the guys running body posts 4mm taller on one side!

I dont think anyone really does it commercially, but anyone will do it for the right price lol.

Hey Bill I also have always used the Protoform Alfa but I understand it is no longer going to be produced! Checked out all the local shops yesterday couldnt find any but Steve at HW had one unpainted personal he sold me. The question is, what body do you think will work at the tracks we race at ? You know I use all your setups so I might as well use the same body just cant bring myself to paint them ORANGE LOL. Hope to see you this weekend .Thanx Bill

Oh my gawd. Even Badboy has switched to the Protoform Alfa. Fortunately, I have a couple unpainted ones to carry me for awhile. Also got the new Stratus 3.0 (looks killer); but, you have to trim back the XXX-S front bumper to get the wheel openings of the body to align properly to the XXX-S chassis.

FYI...I believe Matt Francis said that he has something like three different bumper profiles to align to various car bodies. I gotta do that.

Oh, please paint it bright so I can see it...And not run into it...

Not as much as the Protoform Alfa. The Losi Skoda does have some usefulness though.

Yes they will definitely loosen a car up. I tried one and it was like snot on glass, never had a body change make me change my setup so much.
