Looks like it.

Look closley at that chassis on his foam car i think that is a 3.5mm lower chassis with the gearbox's, steering, and suspension blocks all milled lower. If you look closley at where the standard none MSX has the mid decks you can see round holes milled in the chassis where the braces go. Also look where the rear gearbox mounts, you can see bare carbon where its been milled where the droop screw is.

He used a prototype 4mm chassis on his foam car and the 3mm chassis on the rubber car.

I recon marc has had that for a while or it would not have had the MS/std 415 mid deck stiffener bits milled into it.

Remember when they had the 415 chassis milled solid where the batterys sit for the carpet race in europe? They were milled with slots but not right through.

Also, props to TCS GT1 National Champion Corey Lewis for flying in Thursday night for his first time ever on carpet with no chassis, radio, or body, having a long island ice tea and qualifying cold turkey with no practice and making the A-Main in stock . precision

The chassis is brand new. Marcs mechanic brought it directly from japan to vegas. The other chassis you mentioned was for the LRP Race in Germany 2004. It was 3mm but without battery slots. Did not work very well at the race.

Default chassis

I ran the stock MS Chassis (2.5mm) as I don't have an MSX yet. As Rod indicated Marc's chassis was 4mm prototype for foam. If there is enough demand in north america Tamiya may produce it. Marc also ran a new front diff that Tamiya will be releasing (I just don't know when). For Rubber tires Mark ran the original 415 with the old suspension.

And to think-I passed up 415 only a week or two ago. Man-I wish I had bought that...OH-well-I got a TA05 for now......

From what I heard the Tamiyas were flat dialed in foam mod sedan.

I think that chassis would put the 415 on a lot of tracks. Obviously this car is one heck of an asphalt car. The MSX with its single upper deck just screams rug machine to me.

im thinkin a 4mm chassis and a solid 3mm upper deck would have that car on a LOT of carpet tracks.
