i'm not sure if it has same flex as the LCG.
But BD is a bit stiffer... probably due to more solid alum. bulk head and braces.

LCG is like a flexy noodle. Which.. I like!

You can buy a firm chassis for the BD. Without the firm chassis the BD flex's a lot. The firm chassis for the BD is still not stiff enough for foams on carpet but is fine with rubber on carpet.

Default Fibre Lyte

Fibre Lyte
The chassis has been updated and the company will not send products to the US. I brought my chassis from "acutts" as he lives in the UK. He sold it to me like 3 years ago. The thing was on rails on carpet. Easiest shaft car to drive for me at least. Plus no one has one over here. Lots of oohs and aaahhhsss...
Pure c/f.
