You'll find a time Bro!
'One' other thing must be done/revised also for this chassis.. The receiver cover! must be place higher by at least 0.85mm (assuming brother Marks info on 1.85mm lowered) to clear the ground when cornering. Especially for racers with R133ip futaba receiver.

Last but not least, the pic marks posted, does not look like the hole for sterring post arms being lowered as well while the mid braket is. So if upper deck is lowered, how do you put the alu steering post in without the hole being lowered by the same amount? Mark, did you do photoshoping again?

Me, photoshop never heard of it

Just checking my measurements and to explain more clearly, the milled out sections of the chassis are 1.1mm except for the channel for the belt which is 0.5mm lower. So the rx unit will sit 1.1mm lower than normal.

The hole for the steering post is also milled out by 1.1mm.

Cheers, Mark.

I only use the cady body at that track and oakland park. I use the mazda everywhere else. The cadi is good on the smaller tracks, it is more agressive on the steering, but you loose a little bit of the stability, but the serpent is very stable on the rear, so it is o.k. I have tried the mazda and parma alfa, but the cadi is my favorite at the Miami track.

Hey DJ, going over your setup, would you say you run more droop at RPR compared to the other tracks?

Hmm, another one to look at. Thanks for the tip Pyramid.

Looks like the front bearing blocks and rear brace for the radio tray are both milled out lower, there-by lowering the radio tray, and requiring the lower servo saver post to be lower.
