Thats the spot mate. It would mean run times of about ten or twelve minutes I reckon. I just dont know whether to cut it or make a new top plate in the same design as the old standard FF one but in something saucy like carbon fibre!!

lol - u lazy get!! just bring it in after 5 mins and refuel!!

is carbon fibre gonna take the bangs and crashes ok? then again, its not like u r house jumping or owt, so if its reasonably thick mate, go for it. it would look nice on there i reckon. and it seems a shame to cut the jt stuff up. azzmans alloy rod would help the cf out a bit too, im still looking for something like that, but i run out of the hardware store before the power tools section sucks me in.

Yeah its kind of a leap of faith cutting up that lovely ali. To make the tank work with the old top plate would mean cutting right up to the front mounting holes and Im not sure that grade of ali would stand up to it too well. I really do want to use this tank though, it looks pretty good when its on and will mean run times are similar the the Savage with its 160cc tank.

Hmmm what tank you got... that pic I posted will fit the OFNA 125cc tank, I just havent drilled the hole yet but it will be about 5mm to the centre so still plenty of meat left.

Its a bumpstart at the moment but would leave exactly enough room for a ps if I made the cut. Its a tough one but I may just have to do it properly and get some cf. Tha tank is a Schumacher one. It fits prefectly between the front brace and the rear hole for the tank mounts on the JT chassis.

Clears the steering by about 3mm. It really does look like it was made for it! The rear is lower than the front so as to clear the steering mechanism when in place. It also has rear pick up so as to avoid the dreaded Savage 'half tank leaning' problems. I am going to see if I can cut a custom top plate today out of some 3mm ali I have lying around, if not the JT could be going under the knife!

Well, its on. Managed to rig up some custom mounts. One comes from the front bulkhead mount to the fuel tank, the other from the original tank mounting holes in the chassis, goes across the chassis floor to the correct position for the rear tank pillar to screw to. The best part is that no JT products were harmed during this process!!

No digi camera I'm afraid. I will get some snaps and have them put onto cd so as to transfer them onto pc. Post them as soon as I get them. Well made up though, I tried to knock up a top plate today that would have allowed the use of the New Era roll cage on the JT chassis. Sadly the ali that I had was not up to the job and was WAY too soft. Still, run times of over ten minutes is a pretty good start.

Does anybody have any contact info for JT. It seems that I am in need of a new shock tower. They break instead of bend on hard landings.
Thanks

rolland, let us know if they do bits separately. It would be handy to know for future breakages. Incidentally, just how bad a crash was it to bust a shock tower? As far as I know, you are the only person to push any JT part beyond its limits.

i got my jt chassis from ebay, direct from jt racing for about $50!!. try the email address above for supplier info. www.renegade-rc.com might also be a good place to contact.

its a very nice bit of kit, much stronger than the standard item.

They don't put the CEN chassis on the site, I gave you the link so you could contact them and see what they were all about! Sorry for the confusion.

Well first hand I can say the stock shock towers are alot stronger than the JT towers.

It wasn't that bad of a landing. The one time I actually jumped my MT2 (I rarely take it off of anything higher than 2 feet) I come down with the nose a little high on pavement and when the shocks bottomed out, the tower snapped off right above the diff case. I don't know if it is a faulty part or not I have not been to rough with the chassis since I installed it so I would like to think that it is faulty.

If you do jump with this chassis I suggest setting the suspension up so that the truck does bottom out because apparently the shock towers can't take that much force.

The chassis can also be ordered from ehobbies. Even if you don't use the shock towers the chassis is a worthwhile upgrade, much stronger than stock.

Thanks for the info I will e-mail and post the findings.

Thanks

I think the grade of aluminium they have used gives more resistance to bending but alas more prone to snapping if pushed hard enough. Also looking at them side by side the standard mounts actually look like the design will take more punishment due to the "legs" being wider apart and the actual width of each "leg" being wider as well.
