Same chassis layout on the PAL as there is on the Xenon ...just 180 deg out

also on a little side not the Xenon chassis only weights 3 grams more than the Original chassis and upper deck

If you can give me five hundred dollars, I can print a 69 on an orange sticker and get one of them glitter stars that come in a package of 20 for 25cents and stick it on a box

Good job on getting number 69...an all time favorite...there's 0, then 1, then 69, then 42

Here's something just as hard to get as well. Taka's 414WCR..chassis number 0001

Chassis Numero Uno

Alright, here are some pics of the short wheelbase.

To make it work, you need to grind off about 3mm from the front of the hub carrier, and place that shim behind the carrier once it's cut. Take a front hinge pin and use it in the rear arm, you'll need to grind off about 1.5mm of material from the very back outside of the arm to get the hingepin to work (I'm doing this on hardened arms, so they are propably a little stronger than stock)

Here are some pics, let me know if there are any questions.
