    Hi I bought and built the Evo1 Ms chassis kit and the car runs great however I have noticed the fiberglass chassis is rather brittle as the battery push outs broke right away but I don't need them but I want to safely be able to remove the motor cover as to be able to change motors per track that changes every week at our local hobby shop. I am worried that I will brake the motor cover little snaps clamps if I force it incorrectly. As this is a very expensive car could someone tell me what is the proper way to remove the motor cover. Thanks in advance!

    Those battery tabs are brittle on all the chassis they're moulded on, the rest of the car is fine and you can remove the cover as normal. For me, I usually just flex the front end of the chassis down until the cover just pops out, but go with what ever you feel comfortable doing.
