The only reason the front extension isn't favored is because you have a kickup angle to deal with and compensate for, and you have the steering system that will be out of whack in relation to where it's engineered to run.
It's just so much simpler to extend the rear of the chassis.
Am i right in thinking though that the Rustler conversion at the front joint doesn't reach the kick up but joins on flat at the underside of the front bulkhead ?
Was thinking of an extension plate from here braced with the upper chassis piece as usual. (will the joint be too weak at the bulkhead maybe ?) With a brace from the newly fabricated mounting posts (on the extension plate) of the upper chassis to the usual mounting points in the lower chassis.
Worth a try, or headed for disaster ?
Main reason im looking toward the front rather than the rear is that there's less weight hanging from an extension plate at the front than there is the rear.
