We just put it in the freezer, it is like the extreme cold relaxed it.

I tried it on one of the TA05 Carbon chassis, and it helped but didn't do as well in it as it did on the TA05

I know it's not a carbon fiber chassis, but shouldn't it be sitting flat? Or is that just the downside of a tub chassis? Does this happen to the rest of you?
Yes it happened to everyone who bought the carbon chassis. There was a lot of complaining about it initially, but people either got over it or dumped money on a plate chassis setup.

I haven't noticed any problems caused by this. The car still handles perfectly.

Yea, I got immuned with my TA05's carbon chassis tweak thingy. Fed-up so just left as is and rebuild once in a while.

Typical things a TA05 owner hears when they come off the track...."Dang man, what car is that!?!..." followed by... "Uhh...you think I could drive that a couple laps?..." followed by... "Jezzz man, why doesn't my $400 <insert name here> turn like that?..." concluding with... "and how much did you say you paid for that!??!?!!!"

ahahaha so true
