hello, i just was driving and lost radio and my car flew like 5 mts on the air, and i bend my 720 lcg chassis, not much, it's almost straigt, the bend starts where the front bulkhead begins, and continues to the tip of the chassis, at that point of the chassis the hight from the bottomb of the chassis to the bended tip it's only like 3mm, so do any of you know a safety way to straighten bended chassis?

Rodolfo,
You can try hammering it against a piece of wood, and try to straighten it the best you can, it's hard but it's worth trying it.

hammering with a rubber hammer or steal hammer? Sam what do you think about putting it on a press(and think that's how it's called) and pullit till it gets straight, the thing is that i don't want to mess the chassis completely.

Just do it a little at a time, you got nothing to loose, it is already bent to begin with, by the way, you already have a new chassis on it's way.

What you want to do is set the chassis on your droop blocks, set the blocks about 3in apart with the bend in the midlle of the 2 blocks, then hit it with a hammer. When yoiu hit it you have to bend it back farther than the bend itself because otherwise it springs back to bent. Bend it back a little at a time.

Make sence?

I would just buy another chassis, it might be tweeked too, you never know

Default bent chasis

well...just bend it a little at a time, or the safest way is to put the chasis between 2 pieces of a flat wood/material ( like a sandwich) and use the grip vise clamp and leave it there overnight.
i learn it the hard way...i and broke it for good

talking about clutch gap ?
i used 0.4 gap on the weekend, minimal endplay. i wound the clutch spring till it started slipping and took it back one turn. was very consistent feel all day. overall happy with changing from the TM.

maybe pre heating it will makes ur job easier... aluminium tense to have minor cracks if its being bend... pre heating it may help u eliminate cracking problems... good luck...

I don't know about making it soft. When I run my car the chassis gets to about the same temp as the motor. 130dF asphalt (yes normal here in the desert and other hot places) and 260dF motor. Temp your chassis sometimes, you'll see what I mean.


Anyway, the bent chassis will not go back to how it was when new. The best way to try to straighten it so you can use it for the meantime is to get a couple of 4x6 wood (a little bit longer than the chassis itself of course). Sandwich the chassis, put it on the ground and run it over with your car (your real car!). Leave everything underneath the tire overnight. The next day you have a straight chassis.
