If you're only running on tracks that are smooth with lots of turns and very few and/or smaller types of jumps.. then drilling the chassis to prevent the clutch bell from making contact may not be needed.

On the other hand if you're running on rough tracks with a lot of big jumps or extreme whoop sections then you will probably find this mod to be beneficial.

The best way to know if its necessary for you is just run your car without drilling the chassis and keep a close eye on the clutch bell and the area of the chassis directly below the bell for signs that contact is occurring during extreme chassis flex situations. It will be obvious and easily spotted.

This is what I did with my first chassis... now I just drill/dremel them before I build 'em.

Good advise, thanks mate.
The tracks i drive differ, some smooth, some rough.
But i'll do exactly as you said, just keep an eye on it for the time being.

Thanks mate..

we ran the Bitty race in Pattaya over last weekend and the track was super high bite, high ambient temp (37 deg C) and plenty of off camber corners where you needed good steering.

The team tried a few combos

5/5/3
10/10/5
7/10/5

and we adapted to the grip and track as it changed. 7/10/5 was the best balance of drive and balance. But Ill stress that the surface was like driving a gooped touring car outdoor. massive grip.

certainly nothing like the normal grippy surfaces where I always run 5/5/3

thats one of the great things about this car. you can always default to 5/5/3 but dont be afraid to change it up and try something that might suit your driving style more appropriately or the conditions you are running on

Looks very different. I seen an LRP buggy yesterday that had engine mounts just like that. Wonder if it does make much of a difference....?

Do any of you ever feel like the MP9 lacks suspension downtravel?

I run at tracks with very big jumps that have hard landings. My MP9 TKi3 is so unforgiving due to the short suspension travel it is barely driveable. I've tried different pistions, and set the car up MUCH too stiff, and it still jumps like a cinderblock!

Some people have told me to try the original TKi shocks, but I'm not sure where to find them.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
