I found myself more comfortable running a tighter line. I wouldn't say I picked up any steering or rear bit, but just overall I felt more connected to the car. One of the most tangible benefits I noticed was more even front tire wear; I suspect from keeping the front end flatter and allowing the tires to share the load rather than flexing and loading the outside tire.

If anyone else has any experiences with the on-point chassis I'd love to hear their feedback. I'm impressed with the differences I felt in just a chassis change.

You mean this one Dave?

Try looking at the 12R5 set ups, there was still a little brushed racing when that car came out. Set ups should transfer.

Mostly you just have to deal with the heavier batteries. So stiffer center spring and heavier dampening.

Default ManuTech Shims

Any of you 12.5.1 or 10.5 owners use these shims by ManuTech? Good or Bad?
Thanks and God Bless

Not much difference, should be ok.

Never tried the Manutech shims, prefer the light weight simple spacers that come with the kit.
Easy to change with practice.

Apparently they are just rebadged IRS ones.
People reckon they can break although in the short time ive been racing i havent broken any.

Oops thought you were talking about the rear ride height adjusters

I ran the on point chassis last saturday for the first time and the car felt great. More responsive and more predictable.
