Default K-Factory Chassis

Is anyone here also using the K-Factory Chassis (for sometime) and have any issues with it?

I find I contantly need to be putting a straight edge at the bottom and tweaking the chassis to remove a "belly". Is this normal with all chassis?

Somehow I did not remember having to do this with the stock chassis.

I have loosen all the screws and tightened it back on my Hudy board. Then a bit of racing and a slight belly develops again. I am pleased with the handiling, but would love to get rid of this problem.

No, the screws are all very thight. I use hex throughout the whole car and it's always rather thight.

Do you think maybe I should change the plastic brace connecting the front & rear top decks to aluminum?

Option A so that the flywheel turns anti-clockwise when looking from the front of the engine.
