Iím no where near as centered as most onroad guys are but maybe this guy didnít have a set up scale and didnít no the adverse affects of chassis twisting, especially with something thatís carbon. Bad deal but the seller may not have been in your level of maintenance and keen eye of his toy. Unfortunate but a expense buying used products. To the normal eye that car looks pretty dang clean.

No it was with aluminum chassis. When I got it, didn't think of it much and installed the chassis and bam.. He claimed he used it only for 1 day... Well that 1 day must have been a hell of a day. I bought a new chassis yesterday and took off the bent chassis and it stays bent. Well when I found the bending, I checked it so many times if there's any sort of binding to make it bent when the car was assembled and unscrewed everything and put them back on lol.

True that. But when I ask somebody to check something and that somebody answers, I assume that he's giving answer based on what he found. Not his assumption. When he said yes it is flat, I naturally thought he had checked.

No I didn't. Like I said, I didn't intent to return the car. It was a used car. I expected some problems. But I just don't like to be lied to. But anyway, I decided to take down his name. Not my nature. Thanks all for support.

what?

Totaly unrelated to this thread, So your saying the Detc410 i purchased may have a tweaked chassis because the seller shipped it fully assembled? Man I really shouldn't have gotten into on-road, these cars are way to delicate.

Not all are fragile but most of the ones I've driven from Tamiya like to break almost any time I hit a wall at any speed lol.
