yeah, thats good work ray. He did the 3d cutouts for my xray bulkhead too! Jason's da bomb, and his adjustable upper deck rocks the house too. Can't wait to get it on the track again. I wish I wasn't so busy so I could race again!!!

forty6- this is in my understanding a prototype design.

I asked Jason to make me one as the other person I know running it picked up a lap at his home track with it. It has ideas that myself and many others all put our input on to maximize it for the use of short arms.

With any luck it will be on the track next week.

So again-it may be a prototype and I am not 100% sure if its ready for mass sales. As its a special chassis it has some compromises some might not be willing to make. Like batteries are very centered and moved forward. MOving them forward has left very little room for electronics in it.


And i hope I am not getting in trouble by posting a pic.

The tell tale sign of how much further forward the batteries are is by looking at where the battery strap mounting hole is. Its usually beside or behind the rear bulkhead. Its clearly way ahead of the rear bulkhead in this pic.


It should be really aggressive compared to a stock chassis. But I know at Snowbrds-some of the Team drivers had sheets of lead under the front diff to move weight way forward!! And look at Cyruls car-three cells just behind the front wheels.

Again-I cannot wait to try it. I am sure it will be built by -ohhh 1am tonight!!

I have a Pro4 for a buddy who bought one right here and its beveled too. I'd shoot a pic-but I'd have to open his packaging-so I cannot.

I like to dremel as a bit of art(??) so I dremeled and sanded-but you dont need to. Just CA and be done with it.

Hey ProTC3,

Sean K. out here in VA Beach, VA. Racing onroad with the crew at Debbies RC World. Just got your BMI eTC3 chassis with the works (nerf wings, bumper brace) from a guy who had to sell off his gear.

Really looking forward to getting the car built up and running. The chassis is utterly amazing, craftsmanship like I've never seen on an aftermarket chassis (Penguin is close though ).

Question though, I have two chassis upper braces, thin one for parking lot and thick for carpet right?

Keep up the good work.

-Sean
