has anyone thought about having someone (e.g. BMI) make an aftermarket chassis for the rev4? I would love a chassis without the cutouts in the front and with machined divots for the servo saver and electronics. Maybe even divots for the supension links; can you say lower low roll center?

Mike Dumas - IIC 2006 Vegas - TQ and 1st Place Modified


Protoform Speed12 Body cut at body line, mounted slightly back

JACO Double Pink Wrap front tires trued to 1.67", super glued outside about 3/4 sidewall

Two .033 aluminum caster shims under the front of each arm

.0080 camber shims

lowered front steering spindles = .033 lower

.020 front springs

SpeedMerchant part #5015 Aluminum Front Braces

JR Z3650 Digital Race Servo

SpeedMerchant #5031 Aluminum Straight Servo Mounts

SpeedMerchant #5054 Hollow Carbon Fiber roll over antenna

Novak GTX ESC

Novak Super Flex 16 gauge wire for motor

JR Synth Micro Rec.

Team Br00d IB4200 4-cell pack

45 Weight silicone shock oil

Associated Red VCS spring

1 degree of pod droop

New #5062 .23 Side Springs - about 1/8th of a turn pre-load

20,000 Silicone fluid in damper tubes (10 and 30 mixed)

Team Br00d V2 10-Double Mike Dumas Signature Series motor

29/100 gearing 64 pitch

JACO Double Pink Wrap rear tires trued to 1.77"

The Vegas set-up was very close to what we always run. We went with a little heavier shock oil than normal, and the front tires were only glued about 3/4's of the sidewall. The track was relatively low grip, so finding a nice balance in the car was very important. Note: you can see the yellow paint and #118 on the chassis. These are chassis tech marks left over from the Worlds in Italy. As always, the car Mike uses (or any of our team guys) is the same car you get from your local hobby store or on-line. Nothing really special, just good preparation and some great driving.

Take care.-Bruce
