Default BCE speed Losi 8ight "T" 2.0 3mm chassis

I am starting this thread for our upcoming 8ight T 2.0 line of chassis. The BCE chassis is 3mm thick (1mm thinner than the stock chassis) We are just about to release our buggy chassis, and have had great luck with the performance on that. Testing is about to begin on the truggy chassis, and I want everyone to voice their opinion about what they would like to see incorperated into the chassis, We will have the line scribes, and droop screws, plus some top sercret stuff , but if you have any questions, please let us know. I will have a pic up of the chassis as soon as it is ready to throw on our first truggy for testing. Head on over to the bce speed losi 8ight 2.0 3mm chassis thread to see what people are saying about that one!

I want one as soon as possible. I'm running a brushless conversion though, so as long as it works with the motor mount and battery tray I'm putting on, then great.

Would it be possible to leave some mill on for the center spur.So it doesn't stick out the bottom.Or maybe come with slight groves notched into the chassis and a set of squarish shims with little tabs to almost lock into the grooves.Ranging from .5mm-1mm for the center diff mounts.Just an idea

OOO and secrete stuff is allways good LOL

we've got tons of ideas like that, just dont have enough time in a day to draw something like that up on the cad and implement it. These darn chassis take so long to design! Maybe once we're done with these losi chassis and we get back on track with our aftermarket parts projects(shock towers, hinge pin braces, other aluminum goodies!) we'll take a look into making something like that, I know I'd use it.

what i did on the buggy was just drilled out the spacers you use for the hubs, was perfect height.

I have sent in payment at BCE's payment request with a note that I wanted the truggy chassis. I cant wait to run this chassis.

I should be doing some testing with the truggy chassis on a 1.0 with the bce chassis on it(baby steps) at the pit for the iron man enduro. I got to hold the near final proto on sat night, so we're getting close. Will keep everyone posted. Bill should have some pics up in the coming days!!!

how about where the droop screws contact the chassis, they swing toward the flat chassis on angle and after a little wear on screws will slide past stop, could there be a raised area there on the same angle so the screws will be hitting that spot flat and not sliding

Yes, the chassis is the same length as the 2.0 t chassis, with a couple tweaks of course

On the bce chassis the screws will be where they need to be so the droop screws do not ever come in contact with the chassis, no matter how worn the screws are(within reason) Thats a good idea though, I will see what bill can cook up and see if we can solve that problem in some trick way.

When do you project the prototype will be released to those who are willing to try it.
