I don't remember hearing about any aluminum options for the '13, even finding CF chassis for the '13 is tough these days. The '14 was a better car, the '15 is yet better than that. I'm keeping my '13 for asphalt racing with a beat up CF chassis. If I were in the market for a new carpet car right now (which I almost am), I'd go '15 all the way.

Yeah, there are no options for an aluminum chassis for the '13. I like it for my 17.5 even though the '15 is much nicer. My hobby budget wont allow me to switch completely over. I have heard the aluminum chassis did great things for the '14 and '15 and have a machinest willing to make a aluminum chassis for the '13.

My question is, who else would be interested in getting one? The more I order the cheaper they become.

Wouldn't it be better to just get an aluminum chassis for the '14, and pick up some suspension mounts, inserts, and hinge pins? If you order from rcmarket, you can get the Arrowmax aluminum chassis and new suspension mounting for less than you'd probably pay doing a group buy on custom aluminum chassis for the '13, and end up with a better car.

If you guys are interested in an aluminum chassis for the '13 we can have the rx4 chassis cut out of aluminum now. This would allow you to use the '13 mounts or upgrade to the spec r R1 mounts/ rx4 mounts if you wanted to. Since we cut these in house now, I can fire them up any time now, for a very reasonable cost.

I am going to start running my car in USGT. What is a starting point for gearing with the 21.5?
Thanks.

Just the chassis plate you are looking for? I have one in near perfect condition I would part with if the price is right. Also have suspension mounts. Only scuffs from the battery, no scrapes on the bottom. PM me if interested for pics.
