    ok, I have had a Vantage chassis and loved it... I also used carbon fibre battery and throttle servo mounts and it looked great.. was going to build an eye catcher but decided that an Erevo mamba monster should look even better sitting next to my other trucks so sold the chassis to fund the ERBE.... the right choice in my mind and would do again.

    didnt really answer the question but I didnt use it in the end and dont race so It would be unfair for me to judge.

    you will need to brace the chassis by those 2 tabs.. one is the tank mount and the other the radio tray... get a brace bwteen those two and you will have a good chassis...
    you know.. i never had a sig.. but i do now...

    How do u recommend I brace them? You are talking about the 2 tabs on the right side of the chassis more towards the rear

    a piece of aluminum or carbon fiber across between the two holes.. should be fine.. vantage made a armor kit for it that had a brace..

    on the website you will see what im talking about..its right there in the link you provided.. (the brace that is) so you can get an idea of how to brace it

    Wow this chassis is sweet. I may have to think about this and may have to have it. I will have to reaearch it more. Is the carbon fiber chassis stronger then the stock 3.3 chassis?

    I want one of these in the worst way. Where can you buy them? Also how much longer does it make the wheelbase?

    its the same as the 3.3.. but the servo is more up front and gives more weight to the front which helps with steering response, when racing..

    I believe the package I posted in the link comes with the armor and the extended drive shafts
