Monoblock Chassis Extension

Here you go y'all as requested





They begin live as a solid billet of 7075-T6 Aircraft Aluminum and lose over 85% of the original mass to make this a lightweight super strong extension.

These were originally designed for our Predator chassis, but along the way I made them generic enough so they should work with EVERY chassis on the market (as long as it's not one with an extended rear skid.)
An driveshaft will be your limitation.
We do have one for stock length chassis available, it's the Thunder Chassis Kit, if you already have one of our center shaft kits for the stock length you can get just the bone from the Thunder Chassis.



We've got a small batch done now, they are in polishing and ought to be finished Monday or Tuesday.

Here they are in the store, this is a pre-order at this time.

No, because the havoc does not use a rear skidplate.
You could probably modify it farily easily to accept the extension, all you'd need to do is create holes where the chassis braces to skid plate mounts would be, then run a stock shaped rear skid.

So the rear bone from the Thunder Kit will work with the ext block on the Pred?

Great to see new product being offered for the predator from UE. Thanks, Monstermaxx.

This extension will also eliminate the clearance problems between the pull start and the VBS for those converting to the 1/8 scale clutch and either are using the OS18 CV-RX or some other engine with the Dace offset engine mount.

This might be an interesting combination. I would like to hear how you like this set-up Robin.

That's correct, Predator+Extension will now take the Thunder's center driveshafts.

If you already have our 13512 shaft kit for the Predator (or any stock length chassis) than all you need is the Thundre's bone. If you don't have ours or one with compatable drive cups you'll need the whole kit.

The extension is for the Predator chassis (essentially making it as long as the Thunder chassis). If you're running the Thunder chassis, then I'd get the set back arms to gain wheelbase.

MM, the extension looks great. Kinda makes me wish I still had LRM1

I still haven't placed that order yet but will get to it this afternoon. Nicole is also working on your order

Not everyone is running Racer-X suspension so they can use the SB arms.

Smoother in the bumps. More predicatable handling overall. Clearance and room for motor choices.

I am running the whole UE shabang, UE 6 spiders, drive cups etc.

Running a EB OS .18 TZ, This will work well to help keep the front end down

I'll assemble & weigh when they get back from polish.

I think it'll be a little lighter than a Thunder.

I really like things with weight advertised, I'm on a big kick to spec everything lately, but can someone recommend a readily available gm/oz scale and where to get it??? I don't need some $500 instrument grade thing that changes with breathing on it, just more accurate than the post office scale
