Are you sure about that? I thought all FT B4s come with carbon chassis?
Guess, I have to downgrade to plastic

The older kits used to come with a carbon chassis but the newer black box kits come with a plastic chassis, and it really isn't downgrading to plastic because the plastic chassis provides more traction than the carbon.

But I am quite confused, is there any link to any thread or setup to have things more clear ? Thanks!
anyone?

its done to gain side bite and to get more steering out from the rear. cutting the coil makes it stiffer and ives more steering in the end of the turn and the 4th hole gives more side bite for the bumby tracks. this is all done to compensate fr the lost of weight. less weight = less side bite. look on the associated website for brent theilke setup, thats the lightweight setup.

We did some empirical research and came to conclusion that B4 handles best with duct taped wing and jumps best from skijump on three wheels.

The proof: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91qmf3sG0aU&fmt=18
