I think most of em just use a dremel, but I could be wrong. I dont own a TC3 so I dont know everything they do to the chassis, but if you just want to move the batteries closer to the center, I think a file if your best bet.

Cool

That looks good. Associated should have done that with their graphite chassis...

I think he is referring to milling the battery slot. So that you can move the batteries in toward the center more. But that looks like a good idea. I just got my FTTC3 and am getting ready to mill the battery sectiion, looks like I might be milling that section as well.

Looks really good Manfredo!


Does anyone have any pics of the battery modification. I have an idea, but I would like to see a pic of it.

Thanks,

No milling machine... all Dremel, file, and time! Manfredo... i like the clean lines on your chassis... that is one of the cleanest milling jobs i have seen in some time. Even detailed around the antenna mount... sweet! There are quite a few guys on here that do GERAT mill work, and sell the chassis. I think Ray Huang is one... but dont quote me. Im going from my memory on past postings i have read... and we all know what happens to memory as we get older!
