Default chassis

Dont know of one that just sells a plate for a weed eater motor. FG sells 1/6 stuff, maybe you can just pick up a chassis from them? If not, msc.com sells sheet Al. in all sizes. I would use a 1/8 buggy as a guide and extend it.

The cheapest way might be to get an FG rather then build your own 1/6.

Mounting a weedeater engine on an existing 1/8 scale chassis or MT wouldnt be that difficult the hard part is getting all the components to hold up to all that extra weight and HP/Torque.

For a chassis simply draw out what you want, or mock it up in carboard and get in touch with the folks at Twisted Toys. Their custom chassis work is top shelf.
