I recently got an Integy CF chassis for my MERV. Everything went together quite well,
but due to what I've read/heard about the quality of Integy's products, I'm
hesitant to do any hardcore bashing before I get a chassis brace. I would appreciate any input
regarding what chassis brace I should use.
There are not too many options out there...
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
Thanks. I think I'll go for the T-Bone brace. I want something that will mount to both
bulkheads as well as the chassis. The only issue with the CF chassis is that there are
fewer holes on the aluminum end pieces than what were on the original chassis.
I put the toyz braces on my merv and really like them. They stiffened up the bulkheads dramatically. Shocks rubbed slightly so I dremeled the edges for clearance. Now I have the t bones bumper/brace combo too. merv is about as bullet proof as it can get.
Yeah, I expect my MERV to be pretty much indestructible once I
get a T-Bone brace. The CF chassis allows for excellent ventilation
to the batteries and esc. The whole reason that I got a CF chassis
is because I jumped my MERV and broke the rear portion of the
chassis as well as the rear bulkhead.
The toyz chassis braces probably would have saved it. Those CF chassis' are cool. Light,strong, as you said better ventilation. But carbon fiber being more rigid, can shatter or break in hard crashes, where the plastic will flex, most of the time. Put some pics up when you get it done.
