Arrow NTC3 chassis options/discussion

hello : I am looking to upgrade my chassis and I know of four different types these are below
  • K-Factory
  • Hardcore
  • fioroni
  • bmi
with these four options I have no idea which one to get, they all look so damned good and my budget doesn't allow me trying them all so I would like to know if anybody else has or has tried any of the above and wether they are good or not, oh and if there is any others (chassis manufacturers) that anybody knows of let me know thx.

yes the stock one is STRONG enough, but I thought I could get a lighter one, to reduce the weight of the car

I have tried all the chassis you have listed except the Fioroni. The BMI is the pick in my opinion, but it comes at a price. The GH (not listed) chassis is good value as well. In saying that AE have done a good job on the stock chassis.

I'm quite tempted to get the 4mm chassis, Integy, 3Racing and RDLogics make'em, but with different price tags... 40 USD cheapest by Integy. Anyways, anyone has any comment on this chassis? Like the fact that it is 4mm thick, no more scratching of the flywheel on the ground and stripping those engine mounting screwz...

There is nothing wrong with the factory chassis, in fact you need to add weight to the car to be on the safe side... This is also after using say a 1100 ma pack. Weigh the car on 4 scales, you will see the balance is near perfect.. From memory i think we added weight to the battery pack side... Something like 15 grms...

The K factory side brace is about the only optional part worth looking at...
