Default Narrow Chassis (#68760)

Has it got more flex than the stock chassis?
Is it better suited to high grip or low grip situations?

Any input would be appreciated!

The chassis works really well on both conditions.

On the other hand, the new option narrower chassis (#68760) has a bit different flex characteristic. We found that the new chassis gives the car more aggressive drive feel compare to the stock one. You might feel kind of hard to drive but for some condition it works really well. I think it's nice to have both the stock one and the optional one as setup parts.

Thanks,

I tried it, it is true, it increases the steering, because the upper deck Spec-r is more rigid than the standard, but being more rigid, the reactions of car are less predictable in the event of low grip, it works well under conditions of medium / high grip.

Default spares

what's the situ with the spares of late?

I was going to buy one when they were first released, but the lack of parts availability put me off.

Also, what arms are people using, the hpi pro4 ones or standard arms?

I have been using tamiya arms, much stronger and easy to find.

They are the reversable arms. No part number. You can Google them.
