hi Ben, no one here is keen on the idea of adding an Upper Deck on the CGM chasis. It will be very expensive If only I alone will have it done.
Anyways, more power and God Bless!

Peace and Happy Racing!

Thanks for the update, Lem. If you'd like anything else, please feel free to send me an email.

Kevin, thanks for the comments - looking forward to hearing about this weekend!

Doug, glad they are working in those cases! The roll center plates will be shipping the same time as the chassis- June.

JD, it will be around the general pricing of other chassis upgrades. I don't have a set price yet because I am still finalizing the design.

Thanks!

Hey masterjr33, we sold out of our Pro 3 upper decks around December. At that time I was going to discontinue it, but I have had many requests for the Pro 3 upper decks again. So I might do a limited run of them again this summer. I'll post info on the site and on here once I have more details ready.

Thanks!
Ben

you sir are a god.. i know im out dated.. but i still drive a Big Block convertible mustang in traffic next to all these civics.. it might not be the best thing to have out there. but it gets me going.. kinda like my little pro 3.

i cant wait for my pro 4 these parts are a MUST!!!.
they look great.. and im sure they help stability and consistancy . im glad to see the aftermarket picking up on the new chassis so fast..

Ben......I raced the chassis this weekend on asphalt with foam tires and in the open electric class so needless to say we were racing with 8 turns. I ended up Tq with two wins in the triple A main securing my overall victory and my Tq time was faster then the Nitro 200mm Tq time by a few seconds....also my fastest lap was almost a second faster then the fastest nitro lap. The car was very good all day and I never struggled with the car at all. The track was in a parking-lot its about 185ft x 100ft and it wasnt the smoothest and the track temp was around 110 to 90 deg. This was also the first leg of a 6 race point serries that runs all summer so we are off to a good start. I think next weekend I will get some time with rubber tires and see how the car works with them.

I will post my setup later today.....

Default ONE WAY PLATE UPDATE

The brace plate is being anodized this week and will ship out next week. I'll send everyone that placed an order an email tomorrow (Tuesday, May 18th).

I was hoping to have it ready this week but I decided to go with a different anodizing company.

Thanks again to everyone that has pre ordered, it really has helped out!
Ben

Kevin-Curious what size your tires were.
I run on a 180x80 track. With rubber and a 9 double Ti.
I dumped with a 32/98. But that is on 63 mm tires.
Needs to go down to a 29 or 30 with that big of tire.

How much weight did you add and where?
I had to add 49 grams to get it to balance Left to Right.
Or 7 of the 1/4 oz weights. Seems like alot.
