By the way, how thick is the main chassis?
Also, how much do they mill out the chassis to lower the Motor?

I believe Milling the chassis instead of making a cutout (like what Corally did) is better. The chassis will be much stiffer this way.

3mm chassis and it is milled down 1mm
should be hella stiff...just like the Tech Chassis and the Newer Barracuda Xenon/PAL 3mm chassis

Is the diff any easier to take out or it's the same process as the 414?

Near the bulk heads, there is another graphite piece. Does that need to be taken off aswell to work on the diff? Does the rear diff use the EVO III diff? It looks off-set.

The spur gear area reminds me of the conifguration of my OVA T4. Almost looks the same set up.
