Todd- I don't know if you've heard anything about the Mazda Race Charlie Barnes is putting on in September. I didn't see your name on the entry list. You may want to check it out. Looks like it's going to be a fun race. Here's a like to the thread.

Todd,

When running a spool does the 41t pulley help to give back turn-in steering or should one look to gain steering back through different ways?

Thanks,
E

liter2-What up Dave's bro?.....lol!

jkerr-Thanks for the reminder.....just sent the entry in today.

utracer-I am not sure if Chris really has a template for it. He says he draws it onto the chassis with a pencil then goes to town with the dremmel and files.

EricF-Yes that is exactly what the overdrive does. I think its a must with a spool in a XXX-S.

Big T-- The reason I was curious in the amount of flex in the milled chassis was due to a lot of my local racers run the X-ray. I have driven their cars with the different top plates and can tell a difference between the stiff ones and the flexy ones. Most of the fast Xray dudes are running the plastic chassis as well to give their car a lil more flex. I dunno.....their cars seem to like the flex in our parking lot track. It seems to make them more consistant. Just wondering what your take is on the whole flexing chassis issue.

Thanks
Brant

pookyt-I am sure it does make a considerable difference. However I have never tested the stock chassis and this new milled chassis back to back.

utracer-Go for it!!

Thanks Todd ! Have you ever tested the stocker against the G+ chassis? Say on a med traction semi prepped parking lot?

Thanks
Brant


P.S. Do you, or have you ever run the ceramic bearings?

P.P.S. Is the black belt kit really worth the money? J/K

Todd, I like the look of your milled out chassis, this might be a stupid question but do you use it outside like this??
The pic looks like it but i thought i'd ask-sorry
