I wonder why they continued on with the anti-roll bar on the C3 and C3.1? It wasn't until just recently they did away with the anti-roll bar.

I would imagine on a bumpy track the sway bar would cause the car to lose ground clearance and slow it down if the chassis touched the ground. Especially if you are running it low at 3mm.

My V2 chassis.



Inline configuration is so easy to drive, has mega traction and tons of corner speed.

My original chassis is completely tweaked. The carbon is bending so bad I can't even set it up anymore. Not sure how it happened. No one at my track has seen something like this. Any ideas what caused it? Should I just get the V2 carbon instead of replacing the chassis?

I have not seen this happen yet, but email me at the store and I will give issue you a coupon to save some money on a V2 carbon update kit to make it up to you.

JFTs, I like the way they feel coming out of a corner compared to other brands, the way webbing is done in the rear wheels supports the wheel from the middle out. Contacts have a similar design but for some reason they tend to chunk more than JFTs

My original chassis(running 17.5 class) got hit by a mod TC 3/4 down the straight ( braked too late) and launched my car about 30 ft. in the air, hit the bay door and landed on the board. The pod plate broke, I fixed it but after that my car never drove the same.

After I built my V2, I noticed that my Original chassis did not tweak but it flexed a lot.

I've never even gotten to race my v1 car yet as I received it on a Friday before my last race and the first race for me is still 2 weeks away. I will be waiting on the new front end as I'm very interested in seeing how it does in modified in theory should be a lot better. I did like Josh's car with the flex plates, worked very well for me. Just stopped driving it as parts were getting hard to get
