Hi Folks,

 

I've just come across a tamiya boom chassis that appears to have been designed for a 26d.  All the boom chassis I've seen in the past had a cast hole in the end sized for a 36D or 16D gimbal bearing housing.  An adapter plate was used to fit dirrerent motors.  This new one has a cast hole sized for a 26D endbell.  It has strengthening around the back corners near the rear body mount.  Check the picture below.  Is it possible that this is a repro chassis or did Tamiya adapt the cast rear section of their boom chassis for 26Ds?

Bump.  Maybe Bruce Nesmith can help on this one.
