Default Losi tuned flex chassis

How much diff will you notice going from the rtr chassis to the tf chassis in a 2.0 buggy? Or will the diff be only in the set up? I'm thinking about changing out the rtr chassis to the tf over the winter in my sons buggy and I'm curious if it will be noticeable.

yea im thinking about getting the tuned flex chassis also for the eight 1.0 b
i image it would handle a lot better i asked somebody if he nocited a diffrence in the handling copared to the stock chassis and he said he didnt notice but hes not the best driver but good so i guess i would have to ask a real good local driver

Default Bce speed

I noticed a huge differance between the rtr chassis and the Bce speed chassis at my local outdoor track were the dirt is loose and the track is rough and gets rougher through out the day. The flex chassis really makes it smother in the rough and that adds to traction. On the other hand at my local indoor track smooth clay blue groove track couldn't really notice any difference besides having to tune out some rear traction for some steering
BCE speed chassie is Killer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You will notice a huge difference from the RTR chassis to the flex tuned chassis. Last season I was driving a Losi 1.0T and I went from the race roller chassis to a flex tuned chassis. The difference was huge, the truck steered better and had tons more traction. This season I drove the 2.0T race roller with a flex tuned chassis all season and then I tested the BCE chassis and there was as big of an improvement from the non flexed to the flex tuned on the 1.0 as there was from the flex tuned to the BCE chassis. The BCE chassis is awesome and well worth the money and wait. If you are considering dropping the cash on a flex tuned chassis, check out the BCE chassis they are almost the same price.

Thanks for the quick replies guys, I'll look at the BCE chassis and get some info on it, The tracks we race on are out doors and semi smooth but no blue groove but since they do have a few bumps it may be a good idea to change up to a tf style chassis.
