Yeah from the extra grip/speed/down force that 17.5 TC have over SS I'd say the bump steer effects are much greater due to compression/lean of the car. Makes sense. Car looked good yesterday. Track is technical in areas and really easy to lose time.

do you need direct drive, like a pan car? If not, you could just remove one of the belts and make the car either front or rear wheel drive only.

Looking to get less flex out of the chassis. How much stiffer does the aluminum chassis get over the stock 2015 one?

I personally dont run it but kody and carnage (mike) both run them. i do believe they have had them milled and they still flex quite a bit. unmilled i think they are quite stiffer. why are you looking to stiffen up the chassis? does it flex too much for you?

More have been ordered. We left the back order option open at ShopViper if you want to pre order for the next round. Due in next week... will update when I know more.

Note to Kyle -- there were more than 10 -- that's just when you saw it...
Nick I ordered the ATS version car tonight and it didn't say anything about a back order - I assume they are in stock again?

I do believe that nick was refering to the ats upgrade kit. not the car kit with ats. the upgrade kits sold out very quickly.

We run on a fairly high grip technical asphalt track. 17.5 blinky.
I test drove a fellow drivers TCX and loved the way it was very responsive in every area of the corner like on rails. And the lap times prove it. Tried to copy the setup, but could not get that same feeling until I noticed how stiff the car was. It had a 2.5mm upper and lower deck, which made it very stiff. Not looking to get that extreme, but I was wondering how I can come close to that with the existing parts available.

Already have the front stiffener on the way... probably try that first.

If you want to try really stiff, either the alloy chassis or the original 2.5mm plank eerr i mean chassis from the 2010 kit. (beware you will need the original 2010 hinge pins also, 2mm longer)
Have you tried the original motor mount? the flex motor mount provides a ton more flex than the original.

Yes, I run the milled out stock chassis from Hobby Velocity. I feel it's the perfect blend of stiff and flexible. The carbon fiber chassis has a ton of flex which makes it perfect for asphalt, and the stock aluminum chassis is almost too stiff at times. The milled version that HV has is as close to perfect for what I want. It flexes to a point and then stiffens. Hard to really put into words, you'd have to feel it for yourself. I have it on my 17.5 blinky and it's perfect for me.

the front stiffener really gives alot of steering. i tested it and have removed it for carpet. it may work well on asphalt (no testing on that yet). be prepared it really increases the turn in. really aggressive feel. thats with the screw in it decreases when you remove the screw and less so when you take it out completely.
