Hard to tell. I havent ran on the surface there. But bring your Sorex 36Rs, 27s may work as well.

The chassis works perfect as is. For the former graphite chassis car owners, the XXXS does not have an upper deck

I'll show you how the chassis comes out, it still seems to be very stiff, but does have a tiny bit of flex. Takes a ton of time to do though, definately testing my patience

Does anyone have a part # on the Losi green springs? I may have overlooked it, but couldn't find one on Losi's site.

What do you guys use for cutting the chassis? I've tried a couple of different bits in my dremel and it tends to gum up. Am I maybe running too fast a speed and overheating?

I'm using high speed cutters, they will melt the graphite if you go too deep to fast, so cut carefully.
