I stopped using shims under my top deck awhile ago, it tends to soften the feel by allowing for more flex in the chassis, I like an aggressive feel....too soft and I feel it's lazy going into the turns. On Petit RC check some of the set ups from top drivers on the surface you race on....and hit up local racers with your chassis for specific tips for your track. Most racers will share their set ups.

Are the locating pins on the bulkheads steel or aluminum?

2 biggest factors are track size and motor, with some of the new motors start around 4.0 and adjust as needed.

Start at 3.88 and around 42-50 degrees and go from there.

Default Chassis tweak

Have a fairly newbie question. I have a aluminum flex chassis for T4 2018 with nothing attached to it (the car has been completely disassembled). When laid on a flat surface, on the rear of the car I can squeeze a 0.5mm shim under the car and can do so for about 12mm (18mm) inwards from the rear on the right (left) side. Is this going to have a significant impact on driving/setting up the car? Anything that could be done to correct this or I have to buy a new chassis pretty much?

Thank you very much for responses!

That is a pretty good amount. How much is noticed is debatable between racer to racer but trying to have it flat as possible with no tweak is Ideal. My best method to date has been to sandwhich the alum chassis between a good set up board and a thick piece of glass on top.. with 40-50 lb worth of dumbells resting on it for a few days or even a week. Trying to flex the chassis back with your hands is never really going to work. Spreading the load evenly with some weight does the trick for me. (sorry for the terrible pic quality)

really? Does this really work? I though aluminum has memory and you have to over bend it to get it straight
