I had no problems with it fitting, although I have known some people to grind the top deck a bit, but I didn't need to do that.

It was a while ago and I can't remember which way I ran it. I think it was at the front of the motor

Are you running shims under the rear blocks?

Default new 1.6 topdeck

Hi,

Appart from adding more flex to the car, how does the new thinner topdeck effect the handling?

Is it more noticable in the entry steering or in the middle part of the corner or perhaps is more noticable in rear grip, any thoughts?

It gives middle, which may cause inconsistency.

If I was running outside on medium grip asphalt I would be running the 2.0 chassis and 1.6 top deck.

I like the thinner chassis outdoors on asphalt especially with low to med grip.
Then I would adjust flex with the topdeck.

Default Exotek

I am not running any shims . With none it's pretty close to mid roll centers and outdoors I tend to stay with that most the time
