Your tires might be hitting the wing.

Is the noise only on acceleration? Or does it happen when landing jumps? It could be the wing rubbing the tiers..?.

No its not that. I know exactly what the dude who first posted it meant. When u are stand still and hit the throttle it makes a quick not so loud "cuck cuck" sound. U gotta be standing right in front of car to hear it. Its not a big deal by any means, but i noticed it too. Usually when the pack is fresh and motor is laying down torque to the drive train.

Does the car stutter when it makes the noise?

Thanks. The local guy really does awesome work! It isn't red, more of a fluorescent orange.

Here's another shot of it.

Ok fellers here's what I have been running since the chassis addition. I ran it this last Saturday and was able to run my personal bests in Round 1, then beating that by 4 seconds in Round 2. In the main I ran my fastest lap and had a lap on everyone, with some good competition. The new chassis makes the car easier to drive for sure in my opinion. I run on an indoor track that isn't really clay, its mainly hard packed dirt. Needless to say it can get dusty and loose at times so traction is up and down.

I put the new chassis on, went back to a setup I had run before, and did some battery adjustments that the new chassis allows you to do. My car weighs 1545g, and on the old chassis it was around 1580g. Pretty nice difference and it flexes more!
