Anyone know what the difference between the stock FT TC4 lower chassis and the ITF lower chassis is? Doesn't look like there are any additional cutouts and they are both 2.5mm.

This is what is says on their website

"The Factory Team ITF (Increased Torsional Flex) Chassis Kit allows you to adjust the torsional flex (side to side) of your vehicle beyond the limits of the standard FT TC4 chassis, allowing for more traction in low-grip situations. The Team has also seen benefits on high-bite carpet using rubber tires"

I read that...

I can see the differences between the upper deck and spine plate, those are obvious and would increase flex. I don't however see any difference in the lower chassis. I was hoping to see someone who has one say yes they are different...here's what is different or no, they are the same.

On page 260, Tony Phalen maid a comparison between the ITF chassis and the stock chassis :

"Well, the hole is not the ONLY thing....heh heh

It is made of a different material....something that allows more flex than the stock chassis."

Things are great here . Just working and racing.


I do not have a pt#. When I got my fttc4, I was thinking about doing this to my motor mount. But never did.

I'm sure someone on the pro4 thread will have the pt#.

cya,

Get the parma bumper. The guy that makes the bumpers for the P-dub people is a dork.

Would a FT TC4 be good for a beginner?
