Can some please elaborate on whether the flex in the carbon or whether the alu chassis would make more sense in this scenario?

Like a fool with no self control I have bought two cars and am going to try them both out at my next meeting but wanted to get the group think view here.
it all depends on the amount of bite the carpet has.

counterintuitively more bite more flex required? Or less flex? The tracks seem to come up in traction at big meetings.

then you will be better off with the aluminum in low to medium bite carbon is ok

On high Grip CRC the new U7327- 2.0mm Stiff carbon is money. Lighter then the Aluminium and stiffens the car up. The Aluminium Chassis is discontinued. You won't miss it with this chassis.
2.0mm Chassis

2.0mm Chassis
great, would you believe that I have both. Was the stiffer carbon chassis supplied with rounded edges? I have 4 versions and an alu chassis. I have one that looks similiar to your link. Will try that too. I have the 3 ml one attached Now.

thanks for the help.

The Stiff one is only 2mm thick so look at that to tell which one you have.
Where did you get a 3mm chassis? I don't Schumacher made one of those.

If anyone is willing to sell an aluminum flex chassis that he no longer uses for the MI6 Evo, I would buy it. I'm looking for a lightly used on carpet or used and still straight. PM me if you have one.
Thanks.

I was wrong, its the 2.25mm. Ran the Alloy this weekend and it was consistent. I did better than last time so I guess that is what matters.

What is the most effective way to remove the diff and then replace it? I can easily get it out, but I end up taking half the car apart to get it back in...

Take off spur gear
Roll the belt off the side of the layshaft pulley
Undo the carbon fiber plate holding the diff in place on the bulkheads,
Undo one side of the ARB bearing holders and move the ARB out of the way
Undo the 2 screws from underside of chassis that hold the diff eccentric's pulley position
Pull diff out

To put back in, the reverse and you shouldn't need to worry about the car's tweak etc ...

Simples

It's real 35 weight. I use AE 45 weight all around on mine with the short shocks and the 3 hole pistons.
