Nope. Other than what I suggested earlier, I have nothing more.

That is a very sweet chassis for TC3. I'm going to save some money for this chassis.

This thing has the complete suspension and steering components of the NTC3. I don't know... Seems like some heavy suspension parts for an electric car.

On the upside you probably won't bust that suspension in stock. Mod, you still can i'm sure.

Ok, look carefully, this chassis is similar to IRS TC3 chassis, but only better by 3 things they do. First, the side braces have 2 extra standoffs for both sides. Which makes the chassis more stiff than IRS. Secondly, it is like xray t1 evo2 freedom of choice. You can have choice of using regular c-hub suspension or the pivot ball suspension. Third, you can use NTC3 steering rack. It is better than TC3 steering rack. I heard that TC3 steering rack can easily caught up with dirt. The chassis and rails are 3mm thick and you also have choice for black carbon fiber chassis or SSG chassis. For me, I would get the black chassis because it is stronger and lighter than SSG. Just like Yokomo SD. This is what I think about extreme chassis by just looking at the pics. Never see the car in action. I would like to try it out.

OK go spend your money on something that hasn't been REALLY race-tested as far as i know. You want a stiff graphite TC3? Get a Warpspeed Demon kit.

I also email them about the battery position. They are in a couple of millimeters towards the center by not very much more than stock.

Demon is nice one too.
I have Warpspeed cutout upper deck. I bet Extreme + Warpspeed upper deck will be super stiff.

i dont understand the advantages of going with graphite fiber chassis when the FT composite graphite chassis is plenty stiff and light!
are these aftermarket chassis lighter or stiffer then the stock FT chassis?

If no performance improvement for aftermarket stuffs, 99% for look, 1% for weight.

The Warpspeed one IS lighter than a stock chassis, and just about as stiff and you still get the looks
