IH - It depends on whether you are running rubber or foam tires. I have been using the gray and brown GT-4 springs for mod with foam tires. The Rayspeed springs don't go hard enough for use with foams on carpet. We don't run rubber tires on the carpet at the track I race at.

Later, Lee

Hey guys, I'm wondering if anyone has pics of the fiberlyte chassis for the SD?

I said that I'd try the car again when the Rayspeed stuff becomes avalible, but I hear that the graphite isn't much better than stock, I'd like to check out the fiberlyte chassis parts though, and does anyone have feedback on them?

get the Black Version...i swapped the MainChassis and UpperDeck with the new YOKOMO black Carbon and the platform is stiffer...and the flat finish is very appealing to the eye... like that tuna-fish sandwich you used to drive..

I was told that even the black carbon was made of rather cheap material, that's why I'm looking for the aftermarket stuff...

Check out the Atheena carpet chassis and upper deck if you're looking for a stiffer platform...

ooh, I didn't realize that was it, I though it was the new chassis with the low CG. Does fiberlyte have a website, and how much is that chassis goin for?

BTW, does anyone have info on the low cg chassis (I forget the brand name)
