The Orange is the V1W M2 changes to further add compatibility for the Element Enduro Series, Skid, Axles, Shocks and sideboards. The M2 also includes an updated servo mount (allowing use of the AE Aluminum PanHard mount), Modified Pan-Hard Mount for easier Element Adaptation, Modified Hoop Backer with included Body Mount, Symmetrical long sliders, Simple rear Shock tower brace, Chassis and Axle side shock spacers (requires m3x25), and Incognito mounts for the 70mm and 78mm width for use with AE body posts.

UPDATE (29 APR 2020): The first batch of V1W Chassis are all gone! Thank you all for your enthusiasm and feedback on the V1W Chassis.

Mod 1 will undergo a few modification based on your feedback. The revision will be dubbed "V1W M1". 90% of the current printed parts will fit the V1W M1. The printed rear shock hoops are no longer needed unless you cut off the the rear hoop. Also the Optimus body mount Is not needed with the new version.

The two new key features are the integrated rear shock hoops and the added body mounting location for the JC Creep body. The front body mounts maintain the exact position of the printed mount so you don't have to put new holes in your Creep body with the Optimus 3. Lastly, the tapped holes on the front of the chassis proved to be problematic and were changed to pass through holes.

Introducing the latest Chassis specifically designed with the builder in mind and that box full of spare parts you have laying around just itching to be used. The Chassis is designed around a 78mm inside rail to rail spacing. This allows the widest possible use of parts from popular brands like Axial, Traxxas, and Vaterra. Many other brands may fit but the parts have not been specifically tested.

Adjustability is the key. You will note there are a large variety of holes on the skid and front/rear of the Chassis. These spacing for all of these will directly match up to stock skids, bumpers, bumper mounts and even servo mount(with a little creativity). I've used parts from an Axial Capra, Axial SCX-10 & 10.2, Vaterra Ascender, and Traxxas TRX-4 to map many possible combinations. Some parts will require inside the rail chassis spacers to achieve attachment at the 78mm spacing.

This particular design allows a great building platform for a class 2 or 3 trail rig. The chassis is cut from 6061 Aluminum and weighs just 3.6oz according to our scales.

I have built this chassis for a standard 12.5in wheelbase but can be customized to shorter or longer wheelbase depending on how you build your truck.

This is a builders chassis, expect to fabricate parts, adjust/make links, or trim parts to achieve the desired build.
