Are these countersunk on the chassis side to fit in where the countersunk screws originally went in? Just asking because if they aren't wouldn't they shift even a little bit where the countersink would pull them to the center of the holes.

No ther are no issues with that. We have been using these for our frineds and ourselves for years and have not had 1 issue with moving around.

The only thing would be if the screws th chassis come with are very short, then they may be too short when the skid is installed. but most of the time the factory scews work fine with all the models me have tested.

These aluminum plates last longer than the plastoc ones, and are more reliable in that they dont pull up or ripp off like the plastic type plates. But they still do wear out and will not last forever. BUt they are a good way to lenghten chassis life while still being reliable to race with as they wont pull off and ruin a race from them hanging down and dragging.

Thanks,
Lance

I actually just switched to the Sh buggy and truggy. I am working on a design for it right now. Hopefully I will be finished with the final product in a few weeks. I have a few ideas I am going to try out before I make a decision on how the end product will be some there is some testing We must do before we finalize it.

BUt keep checking in, we will have some very soon

AGama plates will be available from our website on thursday 7-28 (thanks James for lending me a chassis)

The aluminum usually last about 3x longer. Just depends on how abrasive the track surface is. They still wear, but they are just not ever going to pull up or off from the chassis causing you a problem in a race. They are more reliable I guess you would say in a race.

Thanks,
Lance

If you need to make one for Agama, just grab a Losi :P. JK, in all seriousness, I want to try these, I tried some before, but they were just to heavy. How do these compare in weight to the typical DE racing or TBONE Plastic ones?

I will be the first to admit that the Agama has many similarities with the Losi, but Agama Notched out the chassis for the rear skid plate so that the rear of the chassis never grinds down. The skid plate sits into a cut-out so it does not hang up on anything...its brilliant!. My original chassis got 18 gallons of fuel on it before I retired it

Lance, Please take a picture of the agama skid inset into the chassis cut-out. Thank you

Awesome stuff, looking forward to these. About the only option I'm missing.

Lance have you ever thought about making aluminium chassis braces?
