guess he may be really busy
Last time I talked to him he was very sick with pneomina... which was last week.
That means he should be closer to his computer right? j/k

Just the 411,

Well I tried rotating the rear top deck mount and changing the top deck but the chassis still bows after a handfull of laps. I'm just upset that I paid $195.00 for a new kit and it does this.

Mine has a slight bow and works fine. Small price to pay in my opinion for the overall good handleing.

I hope for a fix too. I put this chassis together with a standard setup and picked up 2ths rightaway.

Forgot to add the car seems to have a slight push when turning to the right but makes left awesome. The car is balanced front to rear and side to side and the tweek is spot on. Any ideas what I could try next.

Let me give a thought i had to remove the bow from the.chassis..
Strip the chassis back down to the.plate use some 1000grit and sand the area the 2 motor plates set on the chassis, just enough to five it a smooth glair. Also sand the bottoms of each motor plate. Now do this on a perfect surface and do it in a even mannor like a piece of glass or slate to insure the flatness of the bottom.
Now i would put a drop or 2 of slow set ca between the chassis and plate but u might want to use red locktight. One mine this area was where the issue was comin from this area. If anyone wants to fix it i think this will do it

What is the largest spur that fits in this chassis. Any thoughts on using this photon cefx on carpet with foams.

I have tried it with foam... not the right car, too much flex

Do you think with additional standoffs between the upper deck and chassis would help the chassis much. It has provisions for as much as four standoffs in the middle.
