The chassis is just thinner, no other changes but it looks different is all. It did not have the same cutouts and such. The current cars can be used without the battery strap. They tested a center bellcrank steering at the Worlds which is a bolt on for the RDX. No other changes were present.

Default Chassis

I saw a chassis with the batteries held down with tape. I think it was from the Worlds. I need to replace my chassis and was wondering if this one is available.

Oh Jeff, if you happen to have one in stock, let me I'm be at Superior for the FOCAR race.

Thanks,

Eugene

One things for sure - the corally nuts never pop off when you hit a board unlike body clips!
Yeah, funny a friend of mine drilled his posts and then lost the body clips this weekend at a race. I never have a problem with the twist on ones. Even with the Mazda 6 body. The new rear bodypost plate has different holes for the posts.

One trick you can do with the corally nuts is to squeeze them in pliers several times and turn it and squeeze again. It will stretch them a bit and they will twist on a lot better.

Eugene,

We have 2.4mm and 2.9mm chassis in stock I think that can be taped down. That was an update to the chassis several months ago. All the kits now have that update I believe.

Best way i have found to get the body post nuts free is to run a knife down two sides of the threaded posts and cut half the thread away.
Nuts are still very secure and it is much more forgiving on your fingers.

Cheers

What i meant was with the mazda 6 body its much easier to use the twist on clips at the rear due to the wing being mounted further behind the rear axle, i have the bodypost plate that has 3 sets of holes on it but all it does is move the posts towards the centre of the car therefore meaning with a stratus 3 its still a pain in the a$$ to use the twist clips as your only moving the bodyposts along the line of the wing rather than moving them forward of the wing. If you get what i mean!

Just looked on my RDX when ive got home and found that im not setup for tape without either dremeling the chassis or cutting the tape down to about 4mm width! Have i got a different chassis to everyone else or something???

I tell a lie its Kaerups car from the worlds.
Now, correct me if im wrong (and im sure you will) but that to me looks like a different top deck, chassis and steering setup?!

Jeff had said right after the world that those things were things they were just trying out. shorter chassis, new top deck, new front bulkheads, and diff i believe. Everyone was asking tons of questions about the stuff and he had said it was all just for testing. Which from what i uderstand alot of teams bring many new things to test at the worlds and other large races. if you go back through the pages i am sure you can find the posts about all that stuff from the worlds
