Love this car, it's so easy to drive fast. Is there any benefit to buying the Carbonfibre chassis?
Are you happy with the way it handles? If are then dont worry about it and just replace them,when they get to small.
This is sort of a personal question but how serious are you with the car?
Just haveing fun or are you trying to race people with it,and if you are what you going for? TCS or serious 1/12th. It has to do with the carbon chassis question.
I am in the middle,so I like to go fast but I will not sink a lot of money into this chassis to keep up with the other much faster guys using serious 1/12th cars. A Carbon chassis will make it stiffer and a little lighter.Your adjustments will have more effect on the chassis instead of the chassis doing the suspension work for you. That sounds good untill you see the price of the Tech or the Tamiya piece,you can easliy spend more money on this car just to have it still not be up to the more serious cars.
One cheap thing you can try to stiffen upi the front is a brace across the front suspension arms. If your is stock you can just bend the chassis,make a tie rod that goes from the top of the uprights,you can see if you like it. It will change the feel of the chassis. If you dont like it just take it off,it takes about 10 minutes to make and you most likely have parts laying around to make one up in your junk box.
I run over a 11 hour day,when the track has low grip I run without the brace,when the grip of the circuit goes up i need the front end to be stiffer,pop on the brace and away i go.NO springs to play with and no serious tires to change.
Hope that helps a little.
