I am a horrible driver. I love to go fast, and hit things just as hard.
Just don't like them scratches on the plate. Or the guys who's cars are stoped dead, in a blind spot,at the end of a straight and hittin em head on without them calling it out.. does do some damage. my answer is solved.
I am totally cool. thanks..

Hahaha, I wouldnt want to be racing with you on a track
Chassis plates are pretty expensive to replace, and a bit of a pain to remove all the parts and them reassemble them. You don't normally change it all that often, if at all! Id go the K-Factory RRR Chassis plate - much lighter, supposedly stronger and better, plus its got carbon fiber cool factor

you should be taking your car completely apart after a long weekend of racing which should be about 2 hours of run time, clean everything check bearings regrease all cvd's thats when you find the little things that kill tenths of you lap times

Maybe if I was running on a track that requires everything to be in perfect order!
Until I start racing on the bigger tracks (and ones that don't have a soil and mulch center across the road) Ill just keep going the way Im going as it seems to be working for me. Chassis will definitely be replaced some time during early next year for me, as for a new set of bearings, hubs, shafts and maybe outdrives.

Believe me buddy his front is stuck our K car understeers off power and on power. this weekend will go from 37f to 35f hope they survive and keep in sync with the rear

If the car is understeering on AND off-power, try using softer settings in the front ONLY if the rear is planting nicely. If the rear feels TOO planted, try using harder springs, or less toe, or moving the shocks to a more upright position. Maybe use more toe-out in the front, but yes, try the 35s in the front.

Thats what I mean. My chassis and drivetrain is new every time I "hit the track."

Exactly! Only when it needs adjusting, or something is wrong/needs changing then the motor comes out. I just brush the chassis with a thick brush, check everything and go out another time! Every so often I check the bearings, clean them and put them back in. I always find at least 1 that's seized from having so much dirt inside it!
