Where do you want it to rotate? Intial turn in, mid corner or on power exit?

The build has begun. I'm amazed at the quality of the kit. The steering setup is really nice and went together without any slop or manual fitting. REALLY NICE.

+1 it doesn't ..... The new fan mounts have arrived here in Australia.
Available at rabhobbies and vbcracingaus.

Bezerk RC n Australia has all the D07 drawings now too - Chassis, top decks, Shock towers (to suit any tall/shock configuration). aluminium chassis, machined for flex ( he'll even mill your name/sponsor)
Prices are cheap considering the quality of the carbon and work involved.
Chassis $90, Top deck $25 and $20 for towers using German made carbon with variable weaving to suit your needs.

I heard Jimmy Maddison uses their chassis.
Check out their facebook page - they do amazing stuff - even make their own Bezerk X12 1/12

Stay tuned...shouldn't be long

What's the ETA on the aluminum chassis?
As mentioned above Available now. Send them a message - I'm not sure on Al chassis pricing but they'll even mill areas to increase flex if you need.

I'm looking for more mid-corner rotation. Going down on the diff oil is not the answer . Think the rear has just too much grip. I'll try camber and rear toe

The Team guys seem to run 5K-7K in the rear diffs I would try that, or maybe a little less rear toe.

I'm no expert but wouldn't thicker oil help the car rotate better on power,

Have you tried this?

For some reason I think it would make the car twitchy for us non-pro drivers. Can someone chime in on how the feel changes going from the stock 1K to 5K?

Obviously with the 5K you would have lots of power on exit and probably shorter brake points as well.
