M2C machines new JQRacing White Edition alu chassis

M2C Chassis
See: M2C
M2C Racing has released their new aluminum chassis for the JQRacing THECar White Edition nitro buggy. The chassis includes skid plates as well as “A” and “D” suspension blocks, for use only with the M2C chassis. These updated blocks are necessary to adapt to the skid plate design. These blocks use the stock JQ inserts.
This chassis is made using 4mm thick 7075 aircraft grade aluminum materials and clear anodized. Use of this material greatly increases the overall life of the chassis.

The new chassis features unique skid plates that mount flush on the underside of the chassis. As normal wear happens, the replaceable skid plates will wear and can be replaced as needed, leaving the chassis fresher longer, making this chassis suitable for tracks with high wear characteristics. Additionally, since the skid plates mount flush with the underside of the chassis, they will not effect droop settings or scrub speed on landings.


  • Made from 7075 Aluminum
  • 4mm thick
  • Includes front and rear skid plates
  • Hardened steel droop screw stops

Race Report by Tom Erickson, Photos by Joe Gates & Alex Vande Berg
Stateline R/C Raceway hosted Round#4 of the Michigan State Championship Series Saturday, July 18th, 2015. The event drew 142 entries in 9 classes covering Off Road Nitro and Electric, 8th scale and 10th scale vehicles even with looming storms on the horizon. Kevin Myers, Track owner, called the event all day. Kevin and his crew updated the track layout for the event. The 2015 season has been battling Mother Nature all season and Round#4 was no different first delaying the event for a few hours and then ending the day at 8PM. Not all classes were able to complete their main events even though qualifying was shortened to only 2 attempts.
