No chassis braces means to way to tune chassis flex. Looks good, but how does it drive?

Only thing that really sticks out to me is the Ackermen and tie-rod length/placement; looks like there would be a lot of bumpsteer.

being a crono my guess is its much lighter than legally allowed, is really fast and breaks everytime it hits the track

Default car

Davide Tortorici went back to a Old Old RS7 because the new RS9 was so bad in his opinion and the RS9 is way over $650 US but the car could be good, you never know with the Euro style tracks.

Default rs9

seen the rs7 and true , its built like a tank, the only problem is the price, about 400 plus.

not sure the rs9 which wont be any cheaper will be a hit here in the uk

That Crono looks heavy as hell... I'd get the O'donnel.
