The horror that has been done to this chassis!

I think this one may take some prize. I have seen material removed but don't know that I have ever seen this much removed.

Yeah you are right on that one.
I also just noticed the front bulkhead and front body mount have been turned to swiss cheese. That is one compromised bulkhead. If they are doing that, might as well also drill holes in the motor plate and gearbox. Can always tape over the holes in the gearbox. :p

I seen that one because of the rear tires I've been wanting. Body isn't bad either (can you say traxxas SRT) but there just wasn't 75 bux worth of body and wheels/tires cuz once their off there isn't much left.

I'm no hard core losi fan and sure some one will correct me but jrx-t is what I'd call it from my little losi knowledge that I have :oops: . looks a lot like the losi jrx pro se I had...but truckerized...

Whats actually left that would be worth anything after body/tires/wheels? sorry for the AE guys dumb questions but just trying to enlarge my Losi knowledge base...

There was an article in RCCA many years ago about how to cut weight from cars. It showed how to drill holes along all the edges of a Losi chassis, but nothing that extreme. I remember trying it with my LX-T, and the edges of the chassis were so brittle that the drilled pieces soon broke off. :x

Maybe it was this
Official Losi drilling-F1024x768.jpg
That was Losi's official drilling :lol: , similar than they had since 1991 worlds on these plastic chassis.

My JrxPro SE chassis was also like this BITD :oops: .

Jirka, that's the exact article and chassis.

Too bad my Losi chassis never looked that good after some drilling. :lol:

Looks like the owner of that poor truck missed the part of the text that says "avoid making holes in the chassis' bottom, as they can allow dirt to enter"
