Its $139

I'm wondering how he attached the back of the truck body to the chassis. It looks like he has a buggy rear shock tower with the body mount button drilled out to put the antenna tube through.

Its a serious road racing chassis. You could never run off road with that

My question is, is it needed? That's alot of moolah for a chassis. The current chassis seems to work quite well, will this be $140 well spent?

These things work pretty well as is, and since they show a lipo in the promo pics, there is no balance increase. Maybe with NiMH and saddle packs the argument could be made for balance. But that is still WELL beyond what I would want to spend on a chassis, especially since I usually have to buy stuff in pairs and am on a shoestring budget.

Heck, the cost of that chassis is the same as getting an 18R for use in the stock class.

My philosophy these days is keeping the kits stock. I love the RTR concept and I'm a big advocate of it. If the kit doesn't absolutely need it then I'm not going to buy it.

Phil, there were some guys talking about this chassis on RC Tech, and the Exotek guy (Mike)as well as Tony Phalen (Associated) said that this chassis would not work for off road, because its made to fragile to take the jumps. They even mentioned that it would not be supported for warranty if its used on off road.
Of course, It can be done, but at $140.... wow
