Default Chassis Question

I run a 8T 2.0. How long do you guys run your chassis before you change them out?

its up to you really and what your budget is. some of the serious racers will change it out 2 times during the season where some only change it out when it looks like it needs to be. I personally run mine till it looks like it needs to be replaced. I run skids so it prolongs it .

I race 2-3x per month with a little practice here and there and it seems my chassis needs to be replaced every 12 months or so. But then again I thjnk it's cheaper to replace the whole kit about every 12 months too. I didn't do it last yr but I might as well have I replaced all the plastic, gears , drivelines and chassis. $100 for a chassis, 100 for drivelines, and 100 for misc parts. Prob more cost effective to buy a new kit.

Yea Frank, If money wasnt funny right now I probably would just buy a whole new roller. But for right now Ill probably just do the chassis.......
