Kevin, there's those two and also the .150" forward. The .350 just means that the cells are moved .350" forward from full rear (approx half a cell, right jason?).

Woohoo 2000 posts!

I'll be getting my 350 car within the next day or two, and will post results after I run it.

Haha nice 2k!

That's what I thought about the 350. But aren't the cells also moved inward toward the center? If so, are they also moved inward on the 150?

Yes they are. You want the 350 car, so far it's the best chassis we've come up with yet.

hey kevin,
there is 2 chassis kits that i make for the xray.1 is the 350 kit which is the batteries moved forward .350 from stock rear position for a very aggressive feel.2 is the 1/8 forward which is 1/8 forward from stock rear position which makes the car a little more aggressive over stock but not as much as the 350.both kits also have the batteries moved closer to the centerline of the car and is incredibly rigid.

the split cell chassis was only made for a few guys on special order.i did not put these into production because it was not my design.i wouldnt feel right doing that.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. That will be the chassis I'll get when the time comes! Thanks for the help.

Ok...sounds great! The 350 sounds like the chassis for me. Thanks for the help.

But like I said-bigger foam tires, a thinnner front sway bar and a little toe out did the trick.
Take off the ackerman attachments. I took mine off after I realize the car doesn't turn as tight as with it on.

Hello Mike,

Bad luck at the Roar Nats. I thought for sure you would take it out.

Would you be so kind as to post your 1/12th setup from this meeting.

Thanks
