Default long chasis

On small to medium size tracks with tighter turns or very technical, I lean more on the short chassis because it seems more nimble than the long chassis in these situations. At the Leisure Hours track, I have run both and tend to like the long chassis there.
thanks for the quick info always wondered which would be better at the home track or the track in Indiana so I'll be trying to stick my long chassis

Not a problem DJ. There are only a few onroad r/c tracks in the US I have not run my car, both long and short chassis. There is one little trick you need to do to your setup on the long chassis at your track in order to get around the track better.

Curious which did you prefer short or long at Gulf Coast-Raceway?

I raced my long IGT8F "SPEC" (Team C GT8L) car last week and before that in Rendon and have to say it was a blast to drive. The car definitely felt more grounded and stable versus my ex Cobra GT.

Also wanted to invite you to join us at the Grand Prix in a few weeks.

This race is at Leisure Hours Raceway in Joliet, IL. It is usually held towards the end of June each years (usually the third weekend of that month).

What I mentioned was for DJ directly because it pertained to just his track. I PM'ed him the track-specific tip for him running at Leisure Hours. That is the only track a have to make the set-up adjustment thus far.
