I think Randy is testing out a composite chassis, but it might be months or longer before they hit the stores. It might be worth it just for the $$ savings alone.
I'm waiting for this...

I'm finishing up a good base setup on my Alum chassis 210. As soon as I have that I'll pull out my CF 210 and let you know. It will have more flex so I'm interested to see exactly what that will change (ie: handling, landing, etc.)

I'm using the b fast diff parts for the 210 with hand polished rings. I use the ceramic thrust, and 3mm carbide balls. Could be any smoother, or trouble free.

As for front droop. I am too using the Tresrey front bulkhead, with zero droop limiters and loving it. My car soaks up everything., turns on a dime, and jumps square. My setup is on Petitrc.com . Check it out.

Yea way too much shock length. But overall the car runs nice. Zippy and Jonny5 strong armed me to jump from my "other" car. My TrakPower shorty arrived in the mail today. So I'll mount up some new kicks and try again soon.
If you can't beat em, join em. . Gonna love that shorty man!

The Losi HD Caged thrust bearing set works perfect and fits better. One of the races is thicker and fills the gap that the stock races leave between the c-clip. With the Losi, there is no gap and the c-clip sits flush against the top race.

The one I saw in March was standard length. To my knowledge the only extended chassis are one-offs for factory drivers and are aluminum. Gonna be pretty easy to section an sc or st chassis down though once they are out.
