pic 6. Sorry had to list separately not sure how to put them all together.

The Dynamite graphite shock towers are .1oz lighter than the Losi Graphite towers.

So far the car is 1.4oz lighter, just for the chassis.

Nice work Crash. What type of machine did you use to do that work?

Trips-The track is smooth and high bite, I was going to try the kinwald set up off the losi site as a baseline.

Shuie- These guys up here are just soo fast with the TC3's that we have a long way to go indoors, to get this car going. It is just more consisitant and predictable, the AE car is fast and tons of punch, but it just feels like you are riding on the edge too much. The losi car just gave me the warm and fuzzy feeling when driving it. And outdoors on the larger flowing tracks the car is great, just that indoor tight car set-up is needed.

The above modifications were done on a 15 year old mill ( the name has been worn off), and a dremel. And patience.

BSYDOR,

Do you feel that you can replicate the work you did with that millwork?

MDAWSON,

Yes it could be done agan, since it was done by freehand and calipers, it probably would have some slight difference, but close.

bsydor,

Have you thought of doing this for others? if so , may be a cost of your labor?

BSYDOR: thats some kind of special work you've done there. You could make you a nice couple of pennies doing that for people.

Default But does it flex now?

The mill work looks great. However did this increase flexing torsional and/or radial flex? Please be specific. Thanks!

As far as we can tell at this time it did not decrease any of the chassis rigidity. The car will be ran this weekend and then we will have some test results. The car will have aluminum CVD's front and rear, aluminum lowering blocks, aluminum screws, titanium hinge pins, turnbuckles and ball studs. The car is being built on the premises of making it as light as possible.

Guys, Kinwald was already running a different chassis at the 'Birds.
It was also milled, but not all the way through.
So, no holes, just recessions, a lot of them

He had that chassis at the Novak race also. I saw it on one of the earlier days, but i don't think he ran it. I didn't have the camera when he had it, and it was "tucked away" in a pitbag. I could see it in the pitbag, and it was pretty trick! I did not have the camera that day, and I don't think Shane was there, i would have pointed that out....

Nice job on the chassis Crash.

will the composite CVD shafts from the TC3 fit the XXX-s? or are there losi composite shafts available? also, has anyone tried the spur gear adaptor for different size spurs? what would be a good starting point for stock (other than the 88t spur that came with the kit)? thanks for any info!
