The pro chassis will work. The backplate for the Mach will rub on the chassis with the RTR mounts. There's no way it will work with the kit mounts. The RTR chassis has a small section milled out for the backplate. I got mine to work by dremeling the bottom of the backplate. The pro chassis doesn't have this mille out section, so the backplate will make the engine and CB sit at a poor angle relative to the spur gear and you will have a lot of headache. FYI.

Dragon Racing makes decent stuff too, I know someone that has a dragon racing chassis on his kyosho rtr buggy. It looks cool and works good too.

Had one on my WC. Bent like a banana some what. It curved up at both ends. Just forward and backwards of the center diff mounts. I would stick to factory chassis IMO.
