I'm curious how much lighter it is than the stock.

I doubt though that it would give you some flex if your still gonna be using the CNC chassis brace and it thats the case you'll probable going to shed the thread in the brace. I think it would be a lot better if they just leave that hole on the BCE chassis and just have that plastic brace as an option if chassis flex is what you're after.

Bill was very busy with the Nats the last couple of weeks. Don't worry, he will get back to you.

Those are new Cen plastic chassis braces. Corey gets a lot of the new cool stuff to test from Andrew but he has also been on the team for like 31/2 years and extremely fast. Corey Johnson has his act together.

I talked with Bill and the reason the notch for the chassis braces are not cut out on the BCE chassis is to allow for more chassis flex. You can also cut a milk container and put that type plastic between the brace and chassis to get more flex and/or go to the plastic braces. The Jammin plastic braces will fit good enough for now. The best way to fix the chassis braces would be to use a ball end like Associated and Kyosho does to allow flex side to side according to Bill.

Double Pillow ball in the chassis brace would make alot of sense. I hope Cen makes it.

atleast at this race you got to use an ez up instead of being in the back of a U-Haul truck.

Is that the same v-spec with 10+ gallons or a fresh one? The head looks in perfect condition.

Justin, it was a brand new engine. It was a mistake to use it though because I chased the tune all week and it cost me.
