Made a "C" shaped servo/receiver plate.
Here it is cut, drilled, polished and mounted with an HPI waterproof receiver box.

many parts look like factory made, I am envious and jelaous of your skills in a good way :)
Great job!
I would add some braces or even some sort of a plate right above the center diff, it is asking for some reinforcement, just to make the chassis even stronger and more rigid.There is only a skidplate at the bottom, with nothing above it. Just my 2 cents.

I wonder what Aluminium grade you are using and what is the polish equipment and type of polish you use?

Please show me. I need my Savage Chassis blink like yours.

Fantastic craftsmanship!  Tell me you have a milling machine and you aren't doing this with your drill, hacksaw and a file.  What did you use as your center diff?
