I cant wait to try that chassis out.

I actually had it but sold it because I want to try and get the custom 350 with the staggered cell slots.

I have been told its not worth it, but the static weight balance that you can achieve with it seems like a great advantage. (Im currently running it like that on my stock chassis.)

Wanted to see what you guys thought?


Thanks.

I use to run the staggered cells on an early version of the Evo2. Found out quickly that there was too much weight forward and not enough in the rear. I compensated with setup changes but discovered that the car wasn't really balanced due to heavy loads on the left front and right rear tires and suspension. I went back to the standard saddle packs before I found out about Jason's chassis and loved it ever since.

I'm sorry, can you tell me what Jason's chassis is? Is it just the Standard saddle BMI?


Thanks

No, his Xray chassis is the 350 chassis which represents the battery slots moved forward .350". This improves forward traction without sacrificing rear traction.

I've helped Neil to get where he is today

Jeff Cuff's, great win at Jackson this past weekend. I hope to see you this winter at the carpet races.

This is what I tried to explain to you at RCCAR Nick. The chassis you had when you purchased the car was a brand new BMI 350 chassis. You thought the 350 chassis was the staggered cell chassis which you just realized its not. Btw,the tendecy of Tom's car to over rotate has alot to do with what Niel just explained to you about running staggered cells on the Xray.Sorry my advice was not sound enough for you.

Hey Jason and Brian--
I had been under the weather the past 2 weeks with tonsillitis and then mono, but am feeling much better since they oput me on some badass steroid and painkillers, heh I got a chance to finally put on the battery brace, looks very good. Thank you again Jason. Thanks for the hookup Brian.

Well if thats true than I guess I'm going to just have to try both and see what one I would like, hell its only money.

And its not that your advise wasnt sound, it that I cant tell you how many times I have listen to a person early in my RC career and ran out and bought what they said to do, only to find out it was the wrong thing to buy. Than i had to rebuy the right crap.

Jason also has a chassis that has the batteries moved
.125 farther forward too. It is designed for bigger electronics,
And also for a driver that isn't that aggressive in the corners too
( not as much weight farther forward, but still has a good feel).
For the .350 chassis it kinda tight for the electronics, and is super
aggresive in the corners.

Hope this helps too.

That was a great chassis too. The stiffness alone made the car WAY better than the flexi-easy to tweak stock Evo2 chassis plate.

Bill-if your willing to give up your one-way-you can be considered dialed for the Halloween Classic. My car is amazing right now. Truly. If I could drive it to its potential every lap-it would be unbeatable.

Bsydor... will the Kansas City crew be making it back up to Omaha any time soon.

We've started Sunday sedan racing again and we usually finish up by 5:30 or so. I'd love to run against you guys more often. Just PM me if you plan on making the trip anytime soon.

We are also running that Enduro on Sunday the 12th of September. You can read more about that HERE. It would be nice to see you guys show up for that one. Unless you can put a good team together, my team has the stock touring class locked up.

Ray,

I'll be givin' up on the one way when I come up, it will probably
be too twitchy on your carpet. With our track we run in the
8's to 9's per lap (stock), which is 34 laps in 5 mins. A front
diff is too slow on our track, Not enough forward bite.

What kind of times are you guys getting at the "Gate"?
Also been play'n with the new Roar stock motor,(Which I
heard is the handout) It has potential.
