LOL, I wondered why what looks like a matress or couch was reflecting the light from the chassis edge

that reminds me, I have to get a setup board too, another thing to add to the list

I like the looks of the speedway pal chassis, like the extra cut outs, but I don't want the extra stifness from the top deck, not for running on wooden floors and some of our bumpy outdoor tracks. I also think the cells on the right is better since it means they are on the inside of most tracks, since we usually run clockwise, saying that a chassis should really be balanced right to left but I usualy just add whatever is needed to make it legal

My plans are quite simple, Xenon conversion and some lightening of the drive train, not that it's exactly slowing me down in stock form I also need to get the rest of the screws replaced with Ti, using three different drivers to take apart the main chassis is a pain in the butt

most likely M3x8mm screws or M3x10 if you want, most people would have lots of them floating around in their spares box, it's the motor mount screws I'd be worried about.

lol you like the print that is just a cover the wife keeps on my futon in the office/R/C room.

Im hoping this chassis will hook up on the carpet and did you say ti screws let me know when and i bet the 3 different screws types is a pain

I was gonna say, just about everyone with that conversion will ditch the screws it came with and would go with the Torx ones anyway...

You should just build the car and run it instead of worrying about all these crazy upgrades. You will be very happy with the car, and that chassis wouldn't make any difference for you...

Randman :

I'm thinking about buying either a Barracuda or EVO III SE. Now I know you have both. So which one do you like better?

Both cars have their own problems.

Barracuda:
Need Pal System so the spur dosen't strip. Cost me more $$.

EVO III:
The One-Way strip problem...

Nope! It has not been fixed yet. I know a couple of racers around here who are still having the same problems with the Surikan.
