Most seem to prefer the aluminum chassis for carpet because the bite is so much higher than asphalt--it keeps the car from flexing too much and allowing the suspension to work to get maximum steering and corner speeds. Outdoors on asphalt, the bite is not so extreme--so having the chassis flex and help keep the rear end planted while dialing in your steering seems to be the key!! Of course, car setup is paramount for either scenario!! Your mileage may vary!!!

On black carpet, aluminum helps keep the wheels on the ground, carbon seems to traction roll more. The benefit of carbon though, is quicker steering. If you can drive the car with carbon and not flip, it seems faster. But, that is very hard to do, lol.

From running tc and 12th on black carpet....it all comes down to setup. If you're only gonna be running on black carpet just go aluminum, more for peace of mind

Anyone done extensive testing with a gear diff and friction peg ball diff to see which was faster?<br />
<br />
I'm getting almost identical lap times with the gear diff being a smidge faster and consistent, but barely so. Just wanted to hear from someone who has tested both.

Default Bitty Design Body for F1

What is the difference between Bitty Design Type6C and Type6R body? Steering? Stability?

If you have the traction... A spool axle is nearly unbeatable. A 1/12 axle fits!

Pegs in diff (all pegs) is second best be heats up and changes thru the run.

Both are 10g lighter than a gear diff.

How has the spool axle held up with the heavier rubber f1 tires?

I'll stick with a Fenix Gear Diff. Also stick with Carbon Fiber Chassis.I'm amazed at the pinned diff and the pegs making a come back. When I first started racing all the 1/12th cars came with a straight axle. And the peg Idea came from Team Pit stop for his off road chain drive transmittion. Things just never die in r/c?

I came across a TPS new in package chain the other day while going through some boxes. Great transmission, which I still had one.
