Problem is, if you don't mill out the material where the motor will sit, then the motor will sit on the chassis and possibly cause interference, I agree the endbell protector would be better, but this is the first chassis and do appreciate the input guys.

keep us updated, will there be a thicker chassis and top deck too? that would be great.

That all depends on the guy making them and whether there is enough interest. This is made from high grade Carbon Fibre, 2.5mm thick, and with the topdeck fitted, there is very little flex in the chassis at all, most of which comes from the diff bulkheads.

Only reason I done this, is as much as I like the one from Speedtech, I am not a fan of keeping the stock plastic chassis braces, I think they will be an inducer for tweak if anything.

The topdeck, I intend having the cutouts made smaller to leave a little more beef in thee. The Chassis is also designed to accept the Yokomo BD cell trays, so when new cells come out, they can be swapped over.

The chassis looks pretty cool. The one thing that i thought of for the flat carbon chassis is what if you did some milling where the bulkheads bolt onto the chassis? That way they are keyed into the chassis like the stock setup. keep us informed with your progress.

If the chassis was made from thicker material, yes, but as it is, that would not leave much material UNDER the bulkheads to form the countersink etc..

What about double or trippling the thickness in the areas by adding extra layers, then milling through that.

What would that gain and how would you 'make' the extra thickness.

Hey every one! I recently acquired a TA 05 to use for our TCS race in less than 3 weeks and was wondering if any one had a good starting point setup for a nearly box stock car on rubber and Fasttrack carpet. I will have the carbon shock towers and maybe a front one way? I usually ran the TA04R and have done very well with it in the past. I still have it and wonder if it's possible to get the 05 going better than the 04R. Any input will be helpfull!

Thanks!
Mike
Hope to see new faces at the Trackside TCS race this year! March 4+5!

I'm not going to do that for simple reasons : 1st the bulkheads are fixed on the chassis by countersunk screws, unlike with the plastic chassis, so there would be a conflict if i was to key them, 2nd is it would add to the cost, 3rd is it would change the drivetrain's height (and subsequently the part where the top deck fixes onto the bulkhead won't be at proper height anymore).

I don't get what you mean, but I see no reason of doing so, and no way of doing it in a financially efficient manner.

If you just thicken under the bulkeds then you could mill down and brace without giving up structural integerity.

How do you do that though, machine a second peice of material to sit on the chassis, then you got to fixe that peice of meterial to or you have a thicker chassis and machine the whole lot.

It just isn't practical to be honest.

Laminate a second smaller peice to the deck.

It should just be big enough to provide stiffness and structural integerity.
