Default XXX-S cut outs

Hey guys i was thinking of making my own custom cut outs on my chassis. I have ideas how i want designs but i was wondering if guys could give me some ideas. Like send pictures of XXX-S' that have cut out in them or something like that. This is a plastic chassis so its solid so i have more room to make my own cut outs.

Thanks

Randy Caster's method of cutting into the chassis without going all the way through is another option. Retains the integrity of the sealed tunnel structure. He posted those pics a few months ago.

James Nguyen was working on a custom CNC program to remove the material from the inside of the tunnel on the latest version of the graphite chassis. Not sure where he is at on that project.

Thanks for your opinions. I think ill stick with the whole through the tunnel no just half way. To much work

after all his work on the car he told us that he didnt notice any diffrence.

IMO you're better off getting the "new black belt" to improve the car's drivetrain. if you are more demanding you should try using a nailcutter and cut off every other tooth.

I think that was kinda forgotten about when he got out of the hobby for a while..

Maybe. The new car may make that work a mute point anyway.
