I put the exotek chassis on my car that I usually use for the slow classes as it only had an original 6 cell chassis on that one before. Fortunately the class I'm mainly using it for right now has no weight limit
I just received the "EJ" narrow chassis in the mail yesterday. I plan to use it on my newer car that I use for super stock and mod on rare occasions, but might save it for the carpet season. That graphite just looks too pretty to kill right away on the asphalt.
After one day at the track, even though it was only 21.5 blinky, the nub sticking out of the exotek for east/west servo mounting, is showing a fair bit of wear. I might go back to the north/south servo position and just chop that nub off. Because of the location where you have to connect the servo link to the bellcrank for east/west, it acts like a lever and doesn't require much force at the wheels to rotate a normal servo saver. It would mean it's also much easier to strip servo gears if you opt to not use a servo saver like I did, because there was simply too much slop with the ones I have.
I'm not great at picking up subtle differences in handling yet and I changed a bunch of things at once when I switched the chassis, but I can say it feels like a completely new car now. It was pretty decent before, but now it's an absolute pleasure to drive. If someone was looking at me when I put it down for the first few laps, they would have seen the most ridiculous grin in my face
. It's almost unfair how good my car is now compared to the others I'm racing against. It's a totally legal car, but I expect to be accused of cheating this weekend. Some guys thought I was cheating before when my car weighed around 1500g
