Anyone here used the Dace Mfg Super Chassis plate? I have the CRT Pro kit. I use the Dace Zbrace and Engine Mount. I love them, they are nice and well designed.

I saw one of there Super Chassis plates on another rig, and i went ahead and orderd one. But i cant seem to find any information on it. I checked there site, its not listed. The online shop i buy from said they should have some images and product info shortly. Anyone else have any info on this?

Thanks in advance

Dace has a thread on the Gird. Here a pic of the plate.

This is the rear skid plate for the Jammin X1-CRT from Dace Manufacturing. This skid plate will save the rear of your chassis and make it last a lot longer than it would without this protective skid plate!



Here it is on the Dace web site!

no offense, but this is the buggy thread, not the CRT thread.

Hey guys, I have the x1 rtr. I changed the pipe for the jp-1, and wanted to know about an engine choice. This is my first nitro, but it seems to me that the force .28 that came with the car is pretty fast. Forgive my ignorance, but what I want to know is if a good .21 will have as much power and be as fast as the force .28, and if so what would be a good choice for a small track (100 x 60). With the .28 I have no problems lapping the electric 4x4's.

Yes, a good .21 will have as much power as your .28, in most cases, a good .21 will have alot more power. With the track size you listed, your .28 is more than enough power and you might even go slower with a .21 because they make their power at a higher rpm where your motor makes it at a lower rpm which is good for small tracks.

The AXE Rossi LSK or Cobra both have buckets loads of bottom end power and they rev well too. Either of these motors would have as much power if not more than your .28.

the RTR .28s have no powerband whatsoever, and pretty much any .21 has actual variations in RPM. most RTR big block engines i see have to modes, idle and open throttle. the RPM never seems to change, it's very much the same no matter whether you go full throttle or 1/4 throttle. hey, even an OS RG has a useable powerband to work with. and buggies were always meant to have .21s, big blocks are reserved for MTs.

trilerian,
I'd spend your money on setting the car up first and then learning to drive it fast before you worry about the motor.
Get your moneys worth out of the motor first and get to the point where you can out drive the motor then get yourself a faster engine.
If you put in a fast engine now you may go slower because you cannot handle the power.
There are lots of hop ups for your X1 which will help make it handle alot better.
Tires should be your first choice as they are 90% of the handling.
Then get the Alloy upper and lower B Blocks, heavier sway bars, alloy chassis braces f&r, different shock springs and some different weight shock oils.
That will help your buggy handle better along with a good set of tires.
I just put an AXE Rossi LSK in my buggy and it's got more balls than anything i've owned before (P5 & VZB)

ya, or you could just say "screw dace" and make your own chassis plate. just like your Savvy TVPs, make a copy from plywood then get a slate of aluminum and take it to the machine shop.
