Look at the servo, look at the way the throttle linkage is mounted,. this way you dont put any side loads on the carb, it works straight.

As far as a light chassis, look at the pic.

Yeah that's some nice machining on that chassis.

But it looks to me like it is a standard stamped chassis, so how strong is it with all that material removed

Yeah the BMI one is very nice but damn it's expensive!

Every one thinks its weak until they try it. The chassis is a tub, as long as you dont cut the raised sides it ramains strong.

hmm does this mean you are advising "customization" of the factory chassis? I was thinking about doing that
