Ok it's dang pretty yes. I brought the first one. I have a few questions. First have the bugs been fixed? Pinion clearance? Those people with a centax also said they were having issues. I see the throttle servo has been solved by the way it looks at least. Bottom line can we put the motor, bulkhead and everything else on without shimming or the use of a dremel. Plus why should I get this Generation 2? Don't get me wrong the first chassis was way better than stock. If I had to do it all over again starting from scratch I would buy another. But going from g1 to g2 why? I need an incentive. BMI is all that but so is my money.

there was a few changes with this chassis,1 is that i listened to everyone with the issues they had with the assembly like the gear problems with a centax and i have redesigned the rear brace to clear.it fits as good as the stock car now,i also tackled the weight issue and took some more weight out of it,i changed the throttle servo mounting due to request.no more problems there,i lowered the receiver box down about .093 and thinned the narrowest part of the chassis just a bit.it now accepts a k factory tank and pullstart motor with no problems. i made it the generation 2 because from all of the people that have purchased my chassis have helped it evolve into what it is now,the perfect chassis.it handles just as good as the first one with just a bit more acceleration out of the corners due to the light weight .there is nothing wrong with the first chassis,i still run it on 1 of my cars.i will retire that when someone beats it.lol.the new one i spent even more time on to really improve the looks and functionality of it.hope you guys like it.thanks for looking and thanks for all of your input from the last one

I'm interested in the Electric TC3 chassis. I like the Demon from Warpspeed but the thing has the top brace mounted so high and its so big that it looks chessy compared to cars like the PRO4,YokSD,Tamiya. Any chance yours will be different?

yes mine is going to be much different.the upper bace is going to be very low,it is acually going to be lower than any of the other cars on the market.upper brace is going to mount to the transmision cases and also to the chassis.it is goin to just clear the motor and batteries.motor and batteries are going to be recessed into the chassis and run flush with the bottom of the chassis and motor is going to be installed from underneath the car.upper brace is going to have a 3rd mount right in the center of the car to make it the strongest chassis on the market.batteries are going to be in close to the driveshaft and car will take nitro or electric steering rack.and last but not least,all edges are going to be champhered to ensure a perfectly finished product
