Just in the process of building my A800MMXA at the moment, so far I've mounted the front/rear bulkheads and the motor mount on the chassis plate (no top deck mounted yet).

I noticed that the chassis seemed to lift about the longitudinal axis when I press along the edges (the opposite side would lift up), as if it was not flat. I thought it was the bulkheads/motor mount that was binding the chassis (I used a bulkhead alignment block, maybe not necessary, and I suspected that maybe the chassis was bent by misaligned screws forcing against it), so it started removing the parts piece by piece and it was the same by the time all parts were removed from the chassis. I was almost sure that I might have deformed the chassis by using the bulkhead alignment block, and I remember checking the chassis plate on glass at first and it was flat (forgot which side it was).

However when I flipped the chassis over with its top side (non countersunk side) facing the glass, it was flat

Then doing a search on this thread I came across this post by Oleg. Checking with a straight edge against my chassis plate, it had a noticeable transverse convex shape on the bottom side and a slight concave on the top side, which is opposite to his post.

Are the current chassis still manufactured this way?

I was about to order myself a new chassis plate , or maybe I do have a now deformed chassis? Anybody notice this?

Bottom side, convex, left



Bottom side, convex, right


Top side, barely concave

Nothing to worry about.
We mentioned already in many areas that its close to impossible to produce 100% flat 2mm thick true 7075 T6 alloy chassis plates with milled areas on one of side. With EVERY hole, cut out and/or countersunk you deform the material structure.

Others alloy types (6061 or 2024 that very often are used under name of 7075 alloy....) can be flat during other material properties.

The latest step in a chassis production is the "straightening", because the raw plate is always bent after milling and cutting.
Like always and everywhere there are tolerances. Chassis which aren't inside the given tolerances, will be not find the way to a customer.

Additional info:
You will note that once you installed all parts of the car (bulkheads, motomounts, topdeck's, dampers and and and....) the flatness is good.
Chassis with bulkheads installed and not topdecks = never flat IMO.

Everyone is using the BSR heavy front bumper on black carpet but I can't find it in stock anywhere. Can someone tell me how much it weighs? I'll just add weight to the stock bumper. Thanks!

we are awaiting BSR to re-make this for us. the part was inspired by the XRay T2 hard bumper (which is no longer made). the bumper weight has varied throughout the years but it should be 20g+

Will the latest bumpers be 15mm or 17mm thick? I'm currently using the BSR 3 lugs bumpers but the latest I bought are too thick (about 17mm vs about 15mm). I have to shim the upper bumper in order to use them.

you are too much sophisticated, build the car and enjoy. I've seen top drivers with different geometry and wins word titles. Right to have a good balance of the car , so get a decent and a good setup for you and go to the track.
Some EP drivers make me smiling too much, too much precise on everything and seen them always at the end of the race line.

ENJOY

I don't think Awesomatix vehicles are the "build it and enjoy" type of kit. If you have invested this much time and money into a vehicle you are looking to get the best performance from your car.
