Exclamation Fioroni or Losi tuned flex chassis for my 8ight 2.0?

I'm debating what chassis I should get for my 8ight rtr. Are there any noticable differences from upgrading to a tuned flex chassis or the Fioroni chassis versus the stock rtr blue one?

Also, what are good shock tower? The tlr ones seem good.

Thanks for an help

The rtr stuff seems to be cheap metal and are simply my back up parts if i break a carbon tower. Id also go with the losi tuned chassis or a bce chassis, if you choose the bce id also get a front brace in aluminum to help stiffen the chassis up alittle.

Wrong forum since this is the Nitro Engine forum, but anyways.

Fioroni = overpriced imho. I won't buy\support any of that companies stuff at the prices they charge.

Like was said, Losi tuned flex or BCE are the chassis to get.

I know Fioroni is overpriced, but the chassis is 122, the losi one is 110. Is there a noticeable difference when switching to a higher end chassis?

Yeah sorry I posted in the wrong forum, just realized

BCE for sure- less than both of those and will last longer too. Plus higher quality and better handling to boot! Can't get much better than that.

Sounds good, but is there a noticeable difference in handling versus the stock blue chassis?

If you have the RTR 2.0, the BCE will drop in without any new parts or modifications.
