Jaybee: thanks. just wanted to be sure. i have a set of those from my CGM. have to thank you for mentioning that coz for some strange reason, it never occured to me to try those out for my BD since it should really help improve steering. this just might be the ticket! definitely gonna try them out this weekend at the track. we have a warm up race for an upcoming big race and should be a good time to test it.

This chassis is super stiff. The quality of graphite is the best I have seen. The cells sit in regular slots which lowers the battery over 2mm's. The car is stiffer than anything I have seen so far including a JRXS, RDX, X-Ray, TC4, and Schumacher. I also believe it is one the narrowest cars too. It is the same width as a RDX. The top deck just attached to the bulkheads is stiffer than a complete regualr BD. Will get the weight for foams and rubber tires this weekend on it.

Anyone intrested in having some upper bulkheads with more camber options? Looking at making some up, but need to have it worth while to do it.

Let me correct myself... the axles are the MIP ones for the MR4-TC and I actually got one set from Stormer and the other from MIP (although getting them from MIP is MORE expensive). -JB

So this particular chassis is as narrow as the RDX (4.034"/102mm approx.)!? -JB

You have to cut off your servo ears and shoe goo it down though. No biggie to me as a new servo case is only a couple of bucks

Unfortunatly, the one that Matt has is only slightly narrower than stock as he wanted to be able to use the cell holders
The chassis that Brian is using does not use the cell holders and IS as narrow as the RDX, this is achieved by moving the batteries closer to the centerline.
Hope that this answers your question
Jim

We will be experimenting with these in the next couple of weeks. We wanted to have a chassis that we were satisified with first as we are on the 4 different one now. Testing should be done within the next 2 weeks, then we will start with the arms. The biggest thing is availabilty of the arms right now. Watch for something trick in the future.

Yes, this chassis is the exact same width as a RDX. Batteries moved in and also lower. This is the newest one that has been done. Cell slots fit 3800 and 3700 batteries. The only downfall is having to shoe goo the servo in, but then benefits outweigh having to do this.

I "heard" that EA's first chassis guy was taking too long and now he's going to have BMI do the chassis for him now. This is second hand info but I believe it's pretty accurate.

I will have to see what we have left for graphite. Someone goofed when the sheet was first cut down, so there was alot of material lost. We should have some pictures up this weekend or the beginning of next week.

It took me 8 hours to build this car, but it was really worth it. The Quality of the parts is simply amazing, but one A-Arm had no holes drilled in it, well I had an second Kit here, so I have 4 working A Arms now

hope you like it
