1. Make the chassis narrower, so that it will scrape less in hard corners. I managed to shave 9mm from each side compared to the original Alcyon II chassis, saving a total of 18mm. The chassis is 90mm at its widest part, previously it was 108mm.
2. Remove the saddle pack holes, add openings under the diffs to let accumulated dirt drop off, and add mountings for the shorty lipos with graphite bars to reduce strapping tape usage.
3. To reduce the weight even more. On this point , i have failed, seems like this new chassis is slightly heavier than the old one. It could be becuase of the material density.
