So this is my latest poject... I am making this prototype out of lexan plastic, If I can make this work correctly I will be making a final copy out of carbon fiber sheets. I started out by measuring the stock chassis and battery compartments and my imagination took off from there creating this...

The posts for the battery compartment are made of aluminum shock bodies from my 4-tec. theyy have a bolt and screw going through the middle to cennect them. I had to add some spacers on the shocks for the batteries to fit. There are a couple of other small snags that are an easy fix but the biggest problem that I have yet to figure out is how to make the whole chassis stable, I was thinking maybe a type of tube system that I could run on the top and bottom to help with the sturdiness but Im not sure about that one so if you have any ideas, comments, or tips please feel free to post!

Thanks for the tips man, right now I have the front and rear end attached and will be putting the servos in today as well. I am thinking of making a solid lower plate and using e maxx aluminum chassis braces to hold the top and bottom plate together instead of the shock bodies and am now seriously considering using the L braces. Ill try and get some more current pictures up soon.

thanks again man.
