Do not launch the car off the ground. Some tracks have "alligator teeth" or even small ramp like areas instead of using pipe. Revelation has these as well as the track in toledo. When your car lands, it causes more chassis flex and if you are on the gas it puts a lot of stress on the drivetrain.

The other thing to try for guys having that issue is to get one-piece engine mounts. Skyline makes them and the Kyosho V one RRR mounts fits as well.
Scott,

You've said anything about one piece mount...
Is the 3racing Mtx4 one piece mount a good one ?
have u tried it ?

I just got the 4mm off ebay for around 55 bucks shipped. everything lined up perfectly and it has a very nice finish. Nicer than the stock one. Anyone doubting the quality from 3racing, it is top shelf. It is somewhat similar to bolting some jewelery onto your car.

The obvious I could figure out on why use a 4mm chassis:
Pros:
-More stiff
-Less chance to tweak (bend) the chassis
-More weight in the part you need it most
-You now have a spare chassis (if you bought aftermarket one)

Cons:
-More weight means a tad bit slower

The difference between stock mtx-3 chassis and the 4mm prospec chassis was about 5-15g which is about nothing...

I own three of the skyline one piece engine mounts. I like them so far. There are a few people that have complained about stripping out the screw holes but I have not had that problem. I can also say that at least in one case the threads stripped because the screw being used was too long. If you are nervous about using the skyline engine mount, you can use the Kyosho mount. It costs more money though.

I have the 3racing one. All I can say its awesome and I have not had any problem with stripping the screw holes.

On another note, for the middle shaft block and the upper deck support, go with the 3racing one. The skyline one uses nuts provided and you have to glue them...

can you tell us if the top of the chassis is milled down so everything mounts at the same height as before?

You dont actually need the board (although it helps), just a flat surface and a setup system like hudy (which I like) or PMB (which I dislike for being transparent).

Wouldn't it affect the setup since the whole suspension is lifted up by 1mm? Or just subtract 1mm when setting up ride height?

You're right. You change the suspension geometry when you use a thicker chassis because you have a different angle on the arms with the same ride height on a 4mm chassis compared to a 3mm chassis.
