That would be me, I have the 1.5/3 and 3/3 in stock and should have more 0/3 within the next week, and shims to go with it. They're $20 per block or $30 with 2 shims and the longer 3x12 screws, plus $5 for shipping in North America and $10 international.

For those of you running the extended chaasis, is it improving your lap times and your spot on the podium, or does it make your buggy "seem" more stable, and "seem" to improve handling?

The reason I ask is over in the b4.1 forum, they have been going on for weeks about the big bore shocks. Well a guy did a comparison between the stock shocks and the big bores and his lap times were exactly the same.

Just trying to eliminate the placebo effect and waist of money on something that is not needed.

Hey Zip, there are a lot of things we add, change, alter etc..on our cars to make them better and more durable, hoping they will make our podium spot taller...Big bore shocks are like this, if you measure by single lap times, you wont see the difference, but if they save that bobble that would have upset the car once or twice a race, or even soak up that "cased it" on the triple. Its not the single lap times they improve, its the 30 lap race time, where the difference is made...
Sorry, went off subject there..Oh, the +8 chassis..Ah, for me made a huge difference, went from a few ticks off the pace, and hard to drive, to running comfortably at race pace, and now I can make my car easier to drive..I am using the std flex +8, I have the Dimec20 chassis also, and will try that next weekend. We drive on Med+ bite, but our temps are a bit cooler up here.

Yes, It did improve my ability to consistantly pull off good lap times, at least on the low bite track we are running on at the Spektrum Race.. HOWEVER, there are guys here that are doing well with the Stock chassis, Tresrey alloy chassis, and TD DIMEC +8mm chassis. Its like any tuning piece for a car, you wont know the effects till you try it out yourself!

the durango helped me from average driver to the 3rd place in our club championship 2012
I will try the dimec +8mm for 2013

our club track is low grip hardpacked dirt

some B4.1 dudes that use their +8mm B4 say that it calms down the car, bit more consistend and stable
