No, I'm going to make a chassis myself. I bought a mill, and it should be here in a week or so...

sounds like a big project. can't wait to see the finish product.

i'd like to make my own chassis, over here it is hard to find carbon fibre sheets.

where did you get your mill?

on ebay?

The finished part should be nice, especially the graphite sheet I'm using I'm not going to do all of the cutouts in the chassis, but I'll copy the battery slots, and steering post position on the Rayspeed chassis. I'm also going to cut the graphite where the gearboxes/motor mount sit to lower their CG, and I'll mill out material under the electronics to lower their CG as well.

I got my mill from Sherline.

too bad, Team Hybrid does not offer any of their products overseas. then again, customizing your own chassis is always nice. i find most of the fun is in building the kit. then comes racing.

Well if people are interested in having the gearboxes and motor mount lowered, we could always just do it on the stock, or RS chassis, and save some cash...
