Are you racing carpet ?? If not the stock chassis works best,On asphalt I have not gotten my BMI car to work as well as the stock chassis car.. I have not seen the PRP chassis but I have a BMI chassis and IMHO their is no better made chassis on the market..

I really like my PRP chassis, as mentioned before it has more options than the BMI chassis and has cut-outs for weight savings, ok, you don't get new shock towers and it is $10 more but I think it's worth it....

How does it have more options,the BMI chassis is light enough.

The PRP has adjustable wheelbase built in, it has side bars for protection, the top plate and chassis have extra holes that allow for posts to be put in to make the chassis even stiffer...

the BMI chassis does come with revised towers but the chassis is the same as stock, just thicker...
