I know that TC3 looks bad, but maybe if he keeps it up, he'll be doing work like what I just posted.. and that was all done by hand with a dremel.

no thats not just a first attempt that went bad by a newbie! on lightening a chassis. what that kid did is just stupid even newbies know that you need support on your chassis and you need it to be rigid, all that kid did was ruin a perfectly good car

Randman! that is awsome!

all done by hand with a dremel

what tool did you use? how did you manage to get it all so straight, flat and not manage to go "through" the chassis wall?

I think I'd be a little bit worried about the electronics hanging there like that.... Not to mention that it's got no foam bumper to help protect the front end...

WOW..... I removed weight from my Xray M18 chassis using a simular technique, but I put little more tought into the locations and amount of material to be removed. I also replaced the upper tube brace with a hand made custom carbon fibre one which increase the chassis stiffness with out adding alot more wieght.

Guess you have to start somwhere, unfortunally at the cost of a new chassis. Live and learn

It's one of those new SWISS chassis........ It's called the Heidi Chassis.




I am wondering if they guy was a music major...... I bet the car sounded like a flute when he raced.....
