Ahh, that's what I was thinking of too. I noticed that some of the TC guys are swapping out their plastic chassis immediately with some CF to stiffen things up...

Slightly getting off topic, but no, the chassis I'm talking about is the MR-4BX versus their plasticized variant, the Bmax... Yeah, offroad can use a bit of flexibility, I used to use the center post on the Academy SB Pro as a tuning option...

BTW, I love your signature, it's so true! The best thing I got for my RCs were a pair of prescription glasses for myself, now I can SEE my cars!!!

with my ta05 and 3racing chassis + shock towers, trf shocks and spool, with ib4200 cells, futaba 9550, and a brushed motor setup, the car weighed in at 1560gr, quite heavy.

The more expensive, top end cars are lighter and also have more adjustment to them.

Thats not to say the ta05 isnt competitive because it is, especially at club level, but if you are very consistant in your lap times, the top end cars can be dialled in that little bit better sometimes, and maybe with less weight you'll get some quicker laps in.

The MR4BX is the old chassis for offroad from Yokomo. Currently they have the BMax-4 in two versions, one cheap and plastic, one top end and composite plus lots of alloy, but as I said, if nobody pointed out the differences (and the alloy bits were off) you'd be hard pressed to tell them apart.
