Default Bent Chassis

OMG!!! I new I would bash this machine (GPX4) when I bought it, but I have found I have bent the Chassis!?!?!?

Is there a method of repairing this problem?
Or shall I bin the old plate and tick a new one up to experience?

Thanks in advance lads.

P.B.
my car has qualified for the commonwealth games in gymnastics.
you should see it!! she flips, rolls, summersaults and jumps horses and shit.
the only problem I have is finding a leotard to fit the bastard.

Lmao. I love that P.S.

Anyways, you can try bending the chassis back with a hammer on a flat surface. It will, however, bend back to where it was once you crash again. In the end, you'll have to replace it if you want a perfectly flat chassis.

Cheers rolla.

so would there be a difference in the handling of the car using the bent chassis? can i set up the car to compensate?

would bending it back then create more problems, or be slightly beneficial to the handling?

Has anyone ever done this? bent the chassis back to straight?

I am not looking forward to stripping the whole car down, so im trying to weigh it up and see if its really worth it. After all, I aint chasing every second on a track or nothin. I am asking 18 thousand Q's in one post though, for which I apologise.

Changing the chassis is not as bad as it seems. It will take about 15 min. Just turn it over and only take out the screws on the bottom. Pull off the old plate and set the new one in put all of the screws back and set the gear mess.
