Default Chassis choice for NTC3

Just had a question about two choices i have for chassis on my ntc3. i am currently running an integy 4mm chassis on the car but it just seems heavy to me. i also have the chance to pick up a fioroni 4mm lightened chassis for a cheap price just wondering if any body has experience with these and if i should make the switch to the fioroni?

I would use what you have already. The car is already light. Having a bit of weight down low will help stability. Save your money for a new car when its time to upgrade.

I got one from 3Racing off e-bay for $31.00
I've used a few different chassis, so i'll see how this compares. It almost seems stiffer then the integy.

Yeah, i was at the last meeting, and at sugarbowl the last 2 weekends trying to dial in the car. Then some jackass with a monster truck decide to run over my car on the onroad track and tweaked my chassis. He took off as soon as i reached the pits, so....
