The screw I found was made by Hobbico. I was in Idaho at Hobbytown USA when I found it. Just bring the broken one down with you. I found them by matching up the length and threads. Found some 3mm screws up to 3mm x 20 for some other screws for my Yok.
COOL! There's a Hobbytown nearby that should have it also.

Anyone experimented with custom chassis that push the cells a LONG way forward - up to one whole cells diameter forward (a la forward position in a TC3)?

I dont think it could be done, the steering would get in the way.

No, no, it can be done - you would have to run the stock steering setup, rather than the Rayspeed or a 90 degree mod.

I've measured it up (roughly), and I reckon it would give close to a true 50/50 front/rear weight distribution (slightly more to the front if anything). Standard is about 47/53. Just wanted to see if anyone had done something similar before I get one made up.

I thought about doing something like that, but moving the batts inward, and a couple mm forward, never thought about doing much further...

Well not exactly but I have run my SD with even more weight on the front than one cell forward would provide. This was done with the prototype Atheena carpet chassis with the batteries moved 8mm forward. My car is also about 45-50g underweight so I have a 45g weight that can be moved in the car (this will probably be available soon from Atheena Projects). I have tried running the weight in different places from all the way back to all the way front.

What we found when testing this was that with the extra weight up front we actually had too much weight on the front. The battery moved forward 8mm and no extra weight was the maximum that felt good so that's why the production chassis has the battery 4mm front. This way you will be able to change the weight distribution with extra weight within the area that seems to work with this car.

Sosidge. Randman and all. greetings from Malta.

If you look back about 4 or 5 pages I described how I cut my own carbon chassis, and this has the cells moved right forward.

I am using the Rayspeed geometry. in fact I use a Rayspeed top deck and towers. You just need to have the servo turnbuckle operating ahead of the steering posts instead of behind them. Easily done.

I have not only moved the cells forward, but also further towards the centre of the chassis.

Believe me I noticed the difference straight away. it is so much more responsive and precise.

Good luck.

Joe from sunny Malta.

How much did you move them forward? I was going to cut my own chassis as well, but then Yokomo announced the release of their CGM car, so I'm just going to wait for that to be released...
