FINALLY!
i have been running mine for a few months now and i do like the overall design. there is some flex, but it is minimal and has no efect on performance. the cut design allows easy tranny removal and motor swaps, which is nice. love the slim black look.
i will get my unedited pics up later of my build

These are awesome chassis. I love mine. You not only get more ground clearence, but a lower center of gravity and an overall lighter chassis. It has everything you want in a comp chassis. It really does puut the sw2 to shame too, which is pretty incredible because the sw2 is an amazing chassis also, just goes to show how awesome the 3 is. As far as trannies, I run a losi xx, tmyjeeper runs the xl-5 pede, and turtle runs a b3 or b4. So we pretty much have most of the options testes out and they all work awesome. The losi tranny made a huge difference compared to the pede though. I will never run a pede tranny again in a comp rig after seeing how much lighter and lower the cg is with the xx tranny. I'll try and get some pics up later of the xx tranny in there. Awesome chassis Brad!!!

Looks nice but would be nice if the motor side plates overlapped or something so that they are tied together with screws.

Looks great as usual Bender. But, is it a requirement to run the Bug body on it?

I noticed that too for the builds. Most of them have bugs on them. Damn good body for a comp since it rolls right back over with a little throttle.

As Brad previously stated the motor plates on the production version will be a one piece design, the three piece design is only on the prototypes.

As far as the bug body, I ran mine with a slammed and dovetailed rubi body for a long time until just recently. Your at a huge disadvantage not to run a bug body, they lighter, skinnier, and roll over effortlesly.

in the fine print from bender there is a stipulation that "all SW3 chassis shall wear a bug body"

That is a very solid looking rig. I debated getting an SW2 over building a scaler for the last six months.. man I'm glad I went with a scaler now.. I'm SOLD on a second rig now..

So when and where will they be available?

The bug body is standard issue with the SW3.

Thanks, it'll be a while before I have any ready. I just finalized the production drawings last week. I still need to order material, as well as few other things, before I can get started.

I've been running my ProtoSW3 for our winter comp. It turned me into an average driver to a top place finisher.
