drilling a blind hole is hard but it could work as long as the relation of the bell crank to a-arms is the same

if its attached to the top plate yes i forget i had an aftermarket top plate and had different setup in the front.

Dont worry about the questions i was once there and still am in some ways when i build custom stuff with obscure parts like my current build.

YOU WILL HAVE TO DO IT A FEW TIMES its the nature of the beast i went into it knowing my first chassis wasn't my last one.

Yeah i did think about an extended custom top plate too but as you say this is where im going to run into alignment problems.

Im currently using the Proline steering kit, and with the std chassis the recessed dimples are not used (metal spacers fill this recess) so i think i should only need the bolt holes in the extension piece (not the recess as well) which should make it a lot easier to fabricate.

Dunno if this is any help, but I had a few sheets of 1/8 inch pvc sheets. I put the holes for the servo dimples in the front on pic. and sandwiched this onto the aluminum. You could use anything, Lexan/plexiglass/ balsawood. It works pretty good, I havent had it pop out once.

Looks good, you have any more pictures of your build as it went along ? Be grateful for any more pointers. Thanks.

Here is some pictures, The only real part I screwed up on was a couple of the rear holes, were off center, and they dont seat all the way in countersinked hole quite right.

Thanks for the pics..........

Well trying to find a suitable piece of aluminium for a front extension plate has proved trickier than i thought. Either no one has it in Thailand, or they just have no idea what im asking for....lol.

So it may be plan B and the 2 cut down chassis joined in the middle. While hunting for aluminium i spotted an aluminium draught excluder strip. Anyone got any views as to if this will be strong enough if i bolt through with one both top and bottom. Feels pretty strong to me along its length, although it does twist a little. Doubled up though, maybe ok ?

That looks strong enough I would find some flat aluminum to put on the bottom of it and it will be stronger than the rest of the chassis. The holes will get ovaled if you don't.
