    Race grade aluminum LCG chassis kits going away?

    I had been looking around at some of the products I had planned on purchasing for nice aluminum LCG kits and it appears they are all going away!?

    Anyone else notice this?

    I was hoping to get the T-RCE kit but it appears to be gone...

    I went ahead and purchased what pieces STRC still sells and ill have to fab the rest. Bought 2 of the front and rear setups just incase they stop selling those also.

    The SSC8 kit is still available but at $200 it is a bit pricy for what my purposes are. Certainly a good product though.
    I'm going to hack mine up to pieces so I wanted a cheaper one

    Aluminum? Are you using this as a rover on Mars?

    I have their V1 like the ebay auction, setup as a 1/8 buggy style. I moved the servo to the lower plate so I can run a 1/8 buggy body. They aren't bad, they did start the LCG movement for the Slash. I've had to modify the motor mount though.
    Slash 4x4 lcg(heavily modded), Telluride(modded)gone, TCP, Monster Buggy, Latrax SST(heavily modded), Spartan, "My Summit" pic of that posted in the gallery........and some other things.

    Osensnolf - Every racing grade RC company (Losi, Team Associated etc... ) makes their chassis either out of aluminum or CF. Many who did CF are getting back to Aluminum to keep the center of gravity lower.

    The Traxxas plastic LCG chassis is pretty decent but not nearly as good as the aftermarket ones.

    I was wondering was your needs were.

    In that case, what about an X0-1 to GT8 conversion?

    Looks interesting and may be a worthy contender instead of the official lcg?

    That means I can keep my upgraded motor plate and mount etc. but get a LCG.

    While that does look good I have too much $$$ invested in this slash already to abandon it.

    I have not seen anyone try it. I have been trying to talk a friend into modding his Rustler with the ChuckWorks mid engine chassis. It seems like they are good products for the money.
