Cool... The parking lot we bash at is very smooth, the only problem is the bumps, you should see my LW chassis... it's shaved already!!!

My stock chassis is scorched. LOL. I like the car in stock form. I now set the car back to 4mmF/5mmR, but stiffened the suspension in both front and rear since the front is lower to the ground. I can't wait to feel the difference with this body. Right now my two favorite cars is the R40 and the HB 8th buggy. I got new shots of my twin titans so I'll send ya the pics.

Floating rear body mounts attach directly to the rear hub carriers instead of the shock tower. That way the rear of the body presses down directly on the rear tires and doesn't compress the rear springs. This is expecially important with the lola type bodies because they generate so much rear downforce. I was getting so much pressure when I tried the lola, that the rear end was bottoming out and I would spin out.

They don't sell any for the r40 but you might be able to retrofit another brands onto it. I was thinking to get the Vone series one and see if that fits.
