Hey Jason, here's a suggestion, why don't you cut back the edge of the chassis about .250" directly under the motor so that people with the Tamale fan mounting ring can mount it with out it hitting the chassis ?

Don't forget to post your spool setup.

Thanks.

Jason,
Any chance of making a Lipo-friendly version of the T2 chassis? One with no battery slots but with the chassis milled out slightly where the Lipo pack would sit.

cool.i got into the chassis stuff and it was not for the money,it was for the fun of it and it became a part of my job that i really enjoyed.now with my regular work getting more busy it has been just alot of added stress that i dont want.it started getting stressfull and that made it lose the fun factor.once i get things running smoothly again i am sure i will be back at it.doing some racing should help me get back into it also.

I think its more of dealing with all these self proclaimed r/c car engineers It's amazing how many people try and redesign his chassis kits
