If so, then why not have a ridgid chassis that is a more controlled predictable platform and change springs to accommodate whatever springing is required?
a chassis is a chassis but not a spring. if you think so, you need spring as your chassis.

the more flex the chassis, the more over traction you will get but you need to give up suspension efficiency.

Haven't heard from you in ages.

Yeah, I've seen a couple of Morgans on the track.

I'm doing my home work very hard to made a big bang next year

Yes, that's my thinking also - you will give up suspension efficiency.

higher suspension efficiency mean higher stress to tire. now you can figure it out.

But what if you soften the suspension for rubber tyres? - same thing isn't it?

they are not the same thing. flex chassis is more easy to drive and less sensitive to suspension adjustment and less stress on tire.

Default Locked oneway

I'm interested in locking my front oneway, so that I can have the benefit of brakes and the drive out of the corner that the oneway gives. If you have tried this I would be interested in how you liked it and if there is part available to do this.

Serpent have this option for the 705 and I assume the 710 where you put a couple of pins in the front diff to lock it.

I am not manti as you can see, but I will give you my reason. I think its simple foam tires do not wear at the same rate. as in the front wears slower than the rear. So with the overdrive you can cut your tires at different sizes and end up with same wear rate.

I am sure someone else who could elaborate this subject a little better than me

Futher to what you mention, I thought with smaller front tires, you'll have better turning into corners. Not too sure bout it though, jus my 2 cents...
