I have no experience but depending the quality of the carbon I think a carbon chassis has more flex giving more grip.

the rule "more flex=more grip" is not always true... I noticed that in high grip condition a stiff chassis is better than a flex one... I think that a flex chassis is more forgiving, and i use the radioplate open only if i have rollover problems...

engine may run hotter due to carbon chassis can't release heat

Questions?? Front Traction

Will using the anti roll blades with a flat setting give me a softer setting than using the 2.2mm bar in mrx5wc?

Trying to find more front traction when running my local track backwards, I believe i have the setup for my driving style in the normal direction but don't what to make to-many changes to go backwards.

Thanks

Can someone feel the same to me that the belts and pulleys are the most consumed parts. The belts are torn exceptionally more easier than the 4.
I have replaced many times more than the years with 4.

Hope the future car improves
