Yeah, sorry, I wasn't trying to offend anybody this time. I think more friendly curbs and less breakage are also a good thing. There's a lack of dots used on US tracks and I think we suffer because of it. I'm jealous, really, it looks like a fun track. And while the cars look a little loose, it seems like it's a controllable loose, which I would prefer to the snap-oversteer you sometimes encounter in higher grip.

I think friendly corners with high grip tires and average grip surface sounds better than brutal corners with low grip tires and high grip surface.

I struggled running on a dots track for the first time at Horsham earlier this year. I've become really used to hard corners and how to deal with them. When I got around dots I kept flipping the damn thing. It seems like either one is an adjustment. It sounds like you guys encounter both enough that you know how to deal with them.

I think with this kind of modification, the car will roll!

Why not directly design a chassis plate like the TC3 and totally remove the upper deck?

These parts are improving the car "MAXIMUM" ... :-P

Without topdeck and old system, there is still the problem of the different chassis flex due to the shaft/ torque (like TC3)
With the "floating front gearbox" you will have the chassis always "flat" during accelarate or brake.

When you put the car on your car stand and give full throttle, with the new parts you see how much the gearbox moves.
