All of the screws went in fine and the car still lays flat on the board. I forgot to put the battery strap posts in with the other parts, so they're done with red sharpie. Doesn't look too bad unless you touch the posts and the "Shapodizing" rubs off.

I can't wait to strap a BMI chassis underneath the pretty red parts now. The wide upper deck helped out a ton but the 3mm chassis did nothing for lap times.

It reminds me of the Xpress Pro chassis that I used to race a handful of years ago.

Did you do both at the same time?

I first tried the upper deck and I was able to shave off close to a half a second per lap.

I tested the chassis flex and it was almost gone. I picked up the 3mm chassis in a trade and slapped it on the car and the lap times were the same as with just the upper deck. Maybe it was just me, but the chassis didn't make a difference and it is $80 at the track and it isn't something that someone "really" needs to have on the car to make it fast. I will be offing my 3mm chassis when the BMI comes out and keeping the stock one as a spare.

One of my friends and his brother used to run the express, that's why I decided to go red. Their cars looked trick and I wanted to try the same.

That rocks Tim! I have been e-mailing with an anodizer to get mine done in either Red or green.

Where did you have yours done? Cost? I was quoted $125 to get mine done. A bit pricy...but if it turns out half as good as yours...it's worth it!

Just curious cause when I added weight I added more on the battery-side then I did on the electronics side to try to balance the car out (I run 3300 packs).
When I put my car on the wheel scales on all four corners, the rear end was dead even. The front left (servo side) was 10 grams lighter than the right. This was with 3300s. I guess it all depends on the equipment you run. I'm using a futaba digital servo, Novak Synthesized Rx and a GTX. With foams, it weighs in at 1386 grams with a kydex front bumber, PT between bumper and bulk heads, Tamale chubs and aluminum rear hubs, cut foams and body. I plan on putting a little more weight in the rear, but a bit more in the front. As is, it's on rails.

I have pretty-much the same set-up (asside from the tamale chubs) ... I put a bit more weight at the back of the car when I added mine and found it pushed just a touch ... going to try putting more weight up front next time. For club racing, we have no weight limit so I am only going to add about 7 grams to the left-front of the car.

Thanks for the clarity -

Martin
