Exclamation OS .12 TZ (P) 3Port

I'm about 95% done assembling my EVO WCE. Only problem to make it fully assembled is, I can't seem to find a place where I can purchase the OS .12 TZ (P) 3Port #OS 11373 for under $200 with S/H included.....

RC-Toro was the only store that sold them for $185-$189...but currently they don't have it listed anymore on their website.

Does anybody know where I can get the engine for around the same price or slightly higher like between $200-$210 with S/H included?

Thanks for the help.

Check the EVO thread where you asked the same question. A few answers on that one.

It's good. I have it on both of my RRRs. Much more durable than the stock chassis. Quite a number of people that have tried it says it improves the handling of the car. Just keep in mind, the battery compartment is not removable.

Hi Rmd,

What is your opinion on it? Did you notice a direct improvement in handling when making this change alone on your car?

On WCE #1, I made too many changes at once to be able to notice the difference. That's the time I converted it to the UE/X and started using a front diff instead of a one-way. On WCE #2, I built it with the SP chassis and a front diff from the start.

The solid battery compartment should make the chassis flex less than a chassis with an open battery compartment. Since I always run on the same track, I'm not sure if it's best suited for a low, medium and/or high traction track. Also, it's 7075. I'm not sure if the standard RRR chassis (VZ228) is 7075 or not, but it sure doesn't have that anodized coating.

I bought the chassis because people where saying it improved the handling of the car. Durability wise, I don't have gouges in the bottom like I did with the stock chassis, even though it is scratched up - and considering how many times I've tumbled the cars (end-over-end), the chassis is as straight as the day I got it.

Hi Rmd,

Thanks for the detailed feedback as always.

One more question....Can you say how much heavier this chassis is?

Thanks.

Unfortunately, I do not know how much the SP chassis weighs.

This chasis was used for smooth high grip tracks
typically when you need to stiffen up your car due to track conditions this was the simply way to go
