I'm not sure why you want more cuttouts in your chassis, but if you wanna do it, use a dremel with a carbide cutting bit, and cut some material out of the tunnel. A dremel is really the only thing to use because the way the chassis is you cannot put it in a jig to use a mill... Hope this steers you in the right direction.

KO- yeah I saw that yous car was for sale and how sweet it looked. Thats why I asked how to do it. I know Kinwald did it a while back so I thought I would take the chassis that came with the original car and play with cutting it out. I mean what am I going to do with at plastic chassis when my car is all graphite. By the way, that can is so tight with the white ball cups. I want some! LOL

You can also do it with a dremel... I did, but it takes a TON of time (6 hours for mine) and it's much easier to mess up with a dremel.
