Ride Height:

Lower = lower CG; corners better; doesn't have to transition as much weight so transitioning is better. Just don't go too low because then the chassis may scrape the surface. For foam tires on carpet I usually stick with 4 mm, unless its like a 5 mm rule. So basically the lower, the better. The exception is on something like a semi-bumpy/rough asphalt surface where you may need more ground clearance, then you should run more, but in general, lower is better.
Who makes the center one way and where can I get one?

Oh yeah and for any of you DEMON owners that haven't switched to the Nitro TC3 steering rack, do so NOW. I tried it tonight in stock and mod foam and the car drives almost like a 12th scale...can you say smooth?

So, any luck with the 2.5mm chassis or is it still in testing, I can test one for you Seriously though, I'm interested in the 2.5mm kit if it turns out the same or better than the 3mm. Either way I'm getting one

Are you sure? I went to their site and it was a bunch of monster truck crap. If you have a web address that would be great. I want to get a center one way.

Muffin, make sure you lube it well. I ran one in electric stock and the unit turned to glitter after four runs.

Exclamation DEMON 2

Well as some of you may've heard already, there is a new, updated, and better than ever DEMON coming it. It's called the Demon 2. New features are short wheelbase (250mm) that makes the car extremely smooth and feels as nimble as a 12th scale car from what i hear. The Demon 2 will come with the same hardware as the Demon, just shorter chassis and top deck. This shorter wheelbase requires the use of the Nitro TC3 center driveshaft. The Demon 2 will be especially good on tight courses, but will excell on any course.

In the attached picture, the batteries are not yet centered in teh chassis, as it is a prototype, but the production version will have the centered pack just like the Demon.

The DEMON 2 will be out in late September or October.
