thanks guys.the chassis is coming along real well.
john,keep me posted on the top deck dude
RC Knight,as i stated earlier with the pics,i didnt finish the chassis yet.i just assembled it to double check the whole locations.i still need to pocket under the motor,bevel the battery slots bevel spur gear clearance pocket and pocket under the bulkheads.its almost done though.as for the top deck standoffs,that actually helps the car to not get tweaked.the bulkheads are under alot of load and the wide bracing helps alot.this is the route i took over 2 years ago with the release of my tc3 chassis.if you like you can always remove the standoffs.
the changes i made to the chassis are that i made the tape slots also fit battery strap standoffs and the included battery brace.i changed the battery strap today and i will post a new pic of the finalized kit real soon.i made the motor mount adjustable so you can slide it forward and backward.it also will fit 3300,3600,and 3700 cells.i moved the motor mount out 1mm to help with balance and save your spur gear.i am including nice standoffs instead of the barbell looking ones along with battery strap standoffs.i will be making infinately adjustable shock towers for the car similar to the ones i did on the Mi2.i will keep you posted on any further enhancements.
thanks for looking guys
