I race outdoors on a rough 1/8 track and my carbon chassis has held up well. I did put the Avid protector on it after a few runs though.

What has made the car more enjoyable for me is the reliability. I have finished all but one race with this car , which I cannot say for the other 4 wheelers I have owned. I like the shock towers , and I really like the way the arms are attached to the bulkheads. The screw arrangement he came up with is pretty strong , adjustable , and pretty quick to work on . I like the arms too , really strong so far. I have slop in my rear arms finally , but I bought the car used and have no idea how much time is really on them. I have the shorty config on the car , and run it on a small clay track with a 5.5 on wed nights . Every other time I run the car , its on a large outdoor 1/8 track and I change nothing but tires and add timing to the esc. The parts are cheap in my opinion, and I am impressed with the fit and finish of most of the car. I have a chassis skin on the car and have no issues outdoors with the carbon and its a abrasive track.

What I don't like is a short list ....

I hate the stock body , the stock spur gear, the stock shock caps, and motor mount. The slop in the car actually doesn't bother me , but it sure makes others think you bought a pos. Which is funny because the 1/8 losi's are sloppy and people think they are gold ... go figure.

The first section of the For Sale Rules should answer your questions. It's one of the stickies at the top of that forum.

I run on a carpet track and this past weekend we had our Halloween Havoc race. I haven't got much time on the carpet as I would have like to have had. My wheeler has pretty much the Tessman setup on it except for a couple of different tweaks for the track. I noticed that it wants to 3 wheel bad! All the time! and I am constantly fight it. My question is would it be better to get the new HB +6mm carbon chassis with the thicker top decks? Or would it be better to get an aluminum chassis? Like the + 4 Schelle, or Avid? And would changing the chassis help slow down the weight transfer? Please and thank you for any advice!

I lost a shock collar. Does anyone know if another brand of collar will fit? I can't find a hot bodies collar for sale without having to buy the whole shock package. Thanks.

Schelle also makes a +4 carbon chassis.

I understand a longer stiffer chassis is best on carpet, but the 3 wheel problem your having might be due to sway bars not having enough play. Move collars in more and make sure free to move under full compression.

Thanks for this info RENOV8R!!! The parts came in and I can't believe how this improved the steering linkage! Along with the Exotek steering rack I am just tickled to bits how much slop was removed.

Get the DE wheels for the 22-4 and use the stock hex. Same offset as stock wheels
