For those running the composite +8 chassis, if you had to pick one which would it be? dimeC or dime20? I run at indoor and outdoor tracks. Medium to medium large tracks and medium small indoor. In AZ it's 60's in the winter and up over a 110 in the summer. Do I need to have two chassis', or can I get by with one?

Another thing I noticed is that if you slightly case a jump the car doesn't flip over nearly as easily as the aluminum chassis would.
Yeah..with the stock aluminum chassis my 210 was not good..middle of the pack at best..all I did was change the chassis and it's money..seriously one and a half seconds a lap faster..it's a game changer for me..

The look of defeat, total let down to be honest. Bright side I guess if there is one, the dimec20 chassis i've had on backorder from tower for months finally shipped today.

If anyone is wondering I didn't really crash hard or get in a really bad tumble. I think what must have done it was I landed on a pipe off one of the jumps. I hadn't even noticed until I came of the stand to change batteries and pinion.

I've seen a few stock SC's break in the same location, so I'm starting to think this is an area of concern..but my buggy is soooooo dialed with the + 8..I don't care..

Use thread lock and just snug up the bolt but not too tight. might help this on the new chassis you get it.

Hey guys need some opinions. The exotek parts for is buggy are they just all bling or are there performance advantages with the parts. Looking at getting some parts but not sure which to get. Any input would be much appreciated!
