    Mod My FLM

    I decided to mod one of my FLM chassis. And this is what it turned out like:

    I used a jigsaw to cut the alloy out battery tray area. Then sanded it all back and polished it.
    I had a square bar of alloy the I cut, sanded and polished. And used them for the battery tray brackets.
    Then i used a tap and die to make threads inside the battery brackets. And screwed them to the underside of the chassis.
    My inspiration came from the Magneto chassis

    Very, very cool. Looks really good. Id like to see how it handles in the air on jumps. I would assume it has a very slightly lower CG? Is that tray bracket made from the piece you cut off or was it cut from other material you had?

    Can you tell me where you got the supports for the two chassis supports underneath the chassis. I mean the cross braces, as I would also like a set. Thanks for the help, and happy bashing.
