nice work

many years ago there where carbon fibre chassis available for some factory cars but then they discovered alloy chassis was part of your heat sink for your engine.

just keep an eye on your block temp .

most onroad cars chassi are made for just that to take some of the heat off the motor.

like you said MANY YEAR AGO nitro engines and technology to keep them running cool has came a long way.
After running my car the temps have went down. NOW is it do to the new frame, or that the frame doesnt hold heat like you say maybe the motors heat sink,car being lighter,sleeve cooling ports,oil in fuel an air flow can now focus on just cooling the motor not the alloy frame as well as the motor too...... maybe im wrong I been wrong before.lol


It LOOKS SICK!!!!!
