Hey Dave, have you ever come across a few weak/brittle chassis?
Whilst working on my cuda just now I noticed another spot where the graphite seems to have chipped or more like shattered off a layer or two, noticed as a felt a splinter of graphite stuck in my finger it's at the holes on the outside edge of the motor mount and there are signs of a crack starting to go into the chassis at this point
I know my chassis has taken a lot of punishment at some places but I sealed the edges well and there haven't been many crashes, just some hits as it bottoms out, which I would expect to scrape it more than chip it, which it has at the rear right. The motor mount one is obviously a weak spot but they way it has shattered more than split is annoying, and around the right rear screw hole it's done a similar thing, then at the corner itself it has split.

I was planning on replacing the chassis anyway, in a future upgrade/second kit build, but I didn't think it would be this urgent this soon
I've seen plenty other chassis take similar punishment and worse and be years older yet they hold up better

I havent had any problems, or seen any problems with the R2 chassis splitting or shattering, honestly I would think it's from the surfaces you race on...

Well I'm just about ready and I'm shattered
10.40pm and I'll probably get to bed properly in 20mins, then I have to wake up at around 5.30am I've gone to bed closer to that time than I've woken up close to that time

where has everyone been today? all quiet before the storm?
