I'm using a brushless though, not sure if it's the same for brushed motors, I didn't bother digging out of the trash to check.

Default 1/8" Cutting Bit

I cut one of my 2.9mm chassis tonight following Harsh's words (examples: enchilada and chingadera. ) very carefully.

A few different ideas:
1) Screwed new offset motor mount to uncut chassis and used a blue Sharpie to highlight the area to be cut away.
2) Used blue tape at the boundary of the inner most cut so I could see it while the Dremel Cutting Kit Standoff thingy (another Harsh word ) is obscuring vision while on top of the work.
3) Used a 1/8" diameter cutting bit instead of the larger one (5/16"?) that Harsh showed in his pictures.
4) Vacuumed up cuttings with a Dustbuster after each cut. No mess...And no fire.

Was done in 15 minutes. Next chassis will probably take under 10 minutes and less for the next. I'm only half as good as Harsh; so, I just have three chassis to worry about...

Yep same for brushed motors on the 4 mm, you gotta do it in 2 depths, now on to my next little project ...making roll bar mounts for the new arms

Why do that? I am sure that Specialized will have them for $8 each in the near future...Or just after the Nats.

Just killing time waiting for the team guys to chime in...

A few months ago I tossed a race pack on my brand new Novak Smart Tray backwards. Not pretty. I screamed like a girl too.

Yup, just flip the switch on the back of the radio behind the module to "N".
