I just got my 3racing chassis today. Kind of bummed out that it came prebuilt but I guess it will help when I only have to take off the top deck to install everything. Not too shabby. Just gotta super glue the edges.

Strip it down Josh, also, check clearance on the topdeck and pinion, I had to dremmel the topdeck open a little to allow bigger pinions in.

Oh, and they are Torx screws not Hex....

Anyone got a stock 05 to sell??

I assume this changes roll centre somehow, how does it affect handling?

I should be getting my TA05 today . With that said is there anywhere I can find setup sheets for rubber/carpet. Or is there a "dialed" setup that most people start with?
