well.... broxtowe is very bumpy with big curbs...so that could explain that (then again only had a few rolls, and didn't fly off the "yump" once all weekend ). However, Bedworth is really smooth, and no walls, after one run with the blades, they were showing real signs of wear.
The other thing is I'm only running 27t stock, so the loading should be less than with a mod, I just can't figure it out.
Errrr, help....

Great to have these pics!!!
I think he uses 3mm chassis.
Do you know what are these springs?
Also the front shaft and wheel axle looks very different.

I was wondering about the chassis but early 2.5mm chassis were made with the same holes as 3mm chassis so they look the same.

tamiya stand with a tamiya sticker. xenon stands are square in shape (tamiya stands have the slanted sides)

steve has them here:
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=386&id=4805

it comes in "yokomo blue" and "tamiya blue"...and yes there is a difference.

tamiya stands were a 49xxx part #..so they are out of production. just purchase a xenon stand...and slap a tamiya sticker on there

forgot to add.. the tamiya stands have the holes so you can place your shocks in there when rebuilding them. unfortunately, the xenon stands do not have that feature.

THe chassis plates I saw at Reedy were 2.5 mm think but cut like the original 415. with the wider susp mount spacing. Also we were told they were a different weave of Carbon Fiber, which was as stiff or stiffer than the 3.0 mm decks
