Hey tIANcI, you are a guy to my liking, except that strange Mugen logo of course.
In real racing everybody wants a stiff chassis. With a soft chassis you can make changes to the set-up with no or unpredictable changes. There are, however two good things about a soft chassis, it covers a wrong set-up and or geometry, and it offers a wider, but lower limit, which can make a car easier to drive.
Sorry about the logo dude, I love my Mugen a lot.

I know what you mean about being forgiving but might that not also mean no matter how well you set up the car the idiosyncrasies of the chassis makes it hard? Also, might that not mean your set up will be based on the track as the chassis will only flex then?

Hi Michael. If you talk to us more for sure they will make you tech abddict and then.......
Will be very nice talk to you about engines itselfs, but not car set ups. Did you guys try use AAC on your MS?

There is so much of setups that you can try. A good setup is a fusion of many things including chassis and shocks setup and suspension geometry combo. There would bound to be some setup combo that would work whichever way you try to achieve the ideal setup.

To give a example, you could use a super stiff 4 mm chassis, no sway bars, soft shocks, more droop and soft tires to get a perfect handling.

Putting driving skills aside, another guy could also achieve the same laps as you if he set his car with a moderately stiff 3 mm chassis, medium shocks, soft sway bars, less droop, medium tires... The end result is the same. A well balanced car.

I don't follow you... If it's not set according to the track, what should the car setting be based upon?

Car setups can change on the track itself. I occasionally change droop settings, sway bar settings and caster on the track to the required driving style and track layout.
