I ran the stock 2.5mm (F) chassis near 1 year then thoroughly checked on a PPD tweak plate. The chassis was out some (.015) but less then most other TC's after what mine had been though that year.
Most people are never aware of this and dial it out in setup...they're just left wondering why the shock collars are different to get ride height ..ect.
But...the ITF 2mm chassis is a different case. Since installing that, I've had a few impacts knock it out worse (.020 +). A bent bulhead, a bent screw, or poor tightening proceedure on top deck can tweak it, not to mention a perma twist in chassis plate itself. Using the 4 orings on the top deck helps. Bottom line...the thinner the chassis, the more careful you need to be...with any TC.
