First off, I am not pro...
I would guess that by using an aftermarket chassis for the TC3, you recieve a more balanced chassis. Take Warpspeed for example, they moved the battery to the right side(because touring cars SHOULD turn right more ofton then left. Making the car more stable in the sweepers), and moved the battery closer to the drive shaft. By adding the upperdeck, they accomplished a very ridged design, along with all of the chassis "tweaks." You will also gain a slight weight savings when going to a duel deck setup(depending on what company you choose).

The chassis choice may also depend on how much you crash. If you crash a lot, but they are softish crashes, you may want to stick with the stock tub chassis. But if you drive cleanly, and only have a hard hit once in a while, then a duel deck may be for you. It is much easier to "untweak" the chassis of a duel deck car, than it is to "untweak" a tub chassis, but if you crash a bunch of little times, then it becomes a hassle to keep checking the tweak of your car...

Hope this helps!
Chris

I was a bit confused about the turn right more statement by bubblegum also. Perhaps it might be a good idea if he clarified himself.

The Reedy Race could be going in either the clockwise or the counter clockwise direction.

From my understanding, Warpspeed looked to the rule book, and found somewhere(I forget which rule book) that most touring tracks should be run Clock wise. I guess that my SHOULD is more meaningful like "should". That is Warpspeed's reasoning. If you want, ask some Warpspeed drivers why the battery is on the right side of the chassis, I do not know all the details of the chassis though.

If the chassis is balanced out right, and torque steer is eliminated. Then battery placement shouldnt make a difference.

Both the Warpspeed and the BMI have a great reputation and an excellent track record. I went with the BMI mainly for quality of construction and the upper deck design. Check them both out and ask alot of questions and choose wichever one makes you feel more comfortable buying.
