I have the PRP 3mm chassis and top deck and I've had no problems with the chassis tweaking, without the mod. My stock chassis and top deck did sed to hold a tweak.

I much prefer the thicker chassis on carpet with foams, however, it seems that if you run rubbers then the 2mm chassis is the way to go (Look at Andy Moores Donington Park Setup).

Oh god.....how many TEAMS that Father Horisaka is working with now...? Yokomo for sure, then Kyosho at WORLD, now HPI Horosaka PRO 4...?

P.S...thanks for the tweaking 101.....like most of the ppl here with PRO 4...they are all running the PRP or BMI or HPI 3mm chassis instead of the 2mm for INDOOR rubber or foam, yes I am cheap, but if my tweaking problem does not resolved, I will have no choice to pick up a PRP 3mm chassis.

If any one has a prp or Bmi chassis that run carpet with foam, Did you notice a big difference in the car from the stock chassis?
