Default Chassis Flex

Chassis flex. I am running stock rubber on carpet and could use some help with chassis flex. I've picked up that for carpet foam you want a really stiff chassis. For asphalt rubber you want more flex. And it seems you want more flex for carpet rubber also. How do you find the right amount of flex?

If your car feels "soft" or "grabby" in the corners even when you have it on the stiffest springs, the chassis is too soft.

On carpet the car should slice through the corners, carrying speed throughout instead of wasting the energy in the chassis flex.
