A quick question..I have been running the kit top deck in stock class but have broken 3 top decks..I have the flex top deck but just looking at it do not know where you would use it ( would tweak the car very easily)Is the stiff top deck the Go?

The "stiff" top deck basically feels just like the stock top deck on the track, but doesn't hold tweak as easilly. I don't run anything else for asphalt and rubber tire carpet.

with the core rc pack shifted all the way to the side make it flush with the chassis i only had to add about 2 1/2 ounces depending on what brushless esc/motor combo you are using

Was the 2 1/2 ounces to make the car balanced or was it enough to make legal weight? I have to had close to 100 grams or 3.5 ounces to make legal weight with the core pack and brushless.

I'm running brushless with NiMH packs, steel screws on 75% of the car, and stock bulkheads and I'm underweight, not sure how everyone seems to be overweight.

My sheer anal-ness makes me run the same screw because the others will look different

It's a problem I've had for years now.
