With the stock chassis it's a very flexible car, I can flex mine in my hands quite easily.

If the top is the old and the new is the bottom I am confused.

When looking at the old chassis pic, if the above statement is true, it looks like they took away the extra material where they had originally milled in the pockets on the old chassis. So now, the only thing left over from the old chassis on the new chassis is the middle spine. Which leads to my confusion, by taking these other raised edges will create less flex? I thought it would be the opposite.

I hope what I am saying makes sense to you.

Taking material away will create more flex. They basically didn't mill it out and added some more mounting holes in the middle to adjust the diff forward and back for additional weight bias tuning.

Technically? A lighter body should be better because it lowers the CG.

Realistically? If you wreck a lot it won't last as long. I run the 2W LW and am having no issues with durability. I'm going to send a 4W LW to my painter to get done.

Another deal is I use a practice body to keep my painted one lasting longer.

Yeah, I hear what you are saying. I guess I will have to wait and see the chassis in person.
