yes so far very happy with Krazedbuilds new design, I ran the car identical to last month race , tires, motor ,body ,and gear ratio. just swapped chassis. Last month best time in the main was 27 laps 5:11.553 with a fast lap of 11.537 today was 27 laps 5:07.741 fast lap 11.365. I'm racing it tomorrow at another outdoor local track to compare from last weeks times.11

Tested the chassis today right away I noticed car has more off power steering and rear end is very stable with same setup. Second run I switch to Yokomo/Axon 2.5/2.8 progressive springs and it is even more dialed.

Default Officiana rc bypass oils

I have moved to indoor carpet racing and it is a grey low to medium(by the end of the night) grip level. I have been trying the bypass shocks but think I was very thin on the oil (400cst). The car rolled quite a bit in the front and the front end caused quite a bit oversteer. When using the bypass shocks what range of oils should I be using?

at minimum I would double the oil to 800

Raced the new chassis at this track and went from 13.0-13.1 laps to consistent 12.5's-12.6 ran the same set up as the previous week just swapped to the new chassis.

In theory the green/aqua areas show the amount of flex the front has and how far back that flex is traveling. The solid blue is 'so to say' flat.
The stock chassis carries a lot of front flex back and in opinion gives the car a lot of steering.
The Krazed Chassis breaks that steering flex up and disperses its energy sooner (behind the motor vs behind the battery) allowing the rear to regain some traction.
But that doesnt mean steering was loss. Going by the numbers it can be retained or even gained a little. But overall the feel should be increased balance from apex to exit and getting on the throttle sooner.
At least thats what I hear from drivers about their designs.

on the ARC I was able to run less rear toe-in and still maintain stability as i did with the stock chassis and increased rear toe. My tire wear was also slightly more balanced.

Iíve ran it with 400 and car was way to soft in the front. Went to 600 and it improved but was still too soft. Will try the 800 next time out and also going to try 400 with piston holes glued closed
