If i do this i will let everyone know how it goes. If any of you have opinions or ideas on this method please post them.
Can you measure the thickness of the chassis under the trans? just interested if yours is thicker than my caved in piece. Which measured 0.4mm.

Depending on what Kyosho do with my chassis I sent,I will most likely make a piece of plastic to take up the void.
