I saw that as well. I did not use one at the Nats and did not see any of them in the Mugen tent either, but I was not really looking either. The 4 mm chassis was used by a lot of the guys though.

This may be a stupid question, but I don't know the answer. If I use the solid axle, instead of the gears for the front diff, do I still use diff. oil??

It is not needed since there will not be anything turning. Friction/lubrication is not needed.

The only stupid question, is the one not asked.

I believe the brass (bling!!) battery tray is available through Mugen USA. Have your LHS contact them.
I used it during the Nats and gave my car more stability and steering. YBSLOW was so focused and couldn't be bothered that he probobly didn't see it floating around(j/k Brad). If I'm not mistaken, Sohl, Ishitani, and some other Mugen drivers used it.
I'm sure when Mugen USA has it in stock, their website will post pictures.

I did have 25 grams of lead bolted to the left side of the chassis and 20 grams under the foam bumper. How heavy was the brass battery tray?

Default LCG Brass Battery Trays

YBSLOW and others:

I'm developing the brass battery trays for the team. These are protoypes. I'm selling off the last few on eBay now. They seem to have been a little too heavy so I'm making some changes. Expect an updated version soon.

Damn Sohl, I thought we were friends. No prototype for me?

It would have been perfect. 68 grams in current form. I drilled 4 5 MM holes and lost ~ 10 grams

I personally don't like the three racing chassis. They use a weak alum. mix. 4mm bent on my V-ones. The bow effect was like a 2.5mm difference from center to ends. The Kawahara is nice. They use a duraluminum type metal that's light and harder to tweak. Similar to the optional SP chassis's that Kyosho uses.

As far a 3racing goes. I've had some of their drivetrain parts fail me a couple years ago and haven't bought any thing they make since. The worst was when I busted one of their alum. middle shafts during a main. Snapped it, not the belt but the shaft. And that was from stress not a crash. Go figure.

I would go with the Mugen 4mm or Kawahara. I heard that Xpack was pretty good out in the UK as well.

Kawahara # K-878

Personally I've never had any problems with Dinball AKA rcMart. I've probably had over 10 orders with them within the last 3 yrs. I find RC Champ to be the best. They'll hunt down parts for you if you really, really want it.
