Can anyone tell me the roll stiffness of the chassis flex versus the roll stiffness of the spring/ARB's? Just curious of how much chassis flex are we talking about here?

Thank you for the response. I am still looking for the engineering reason why the cars are faster with a flexible chassis. If it's because it lowers the roll stiffness of the front or rear, then why...

EDIT: I see you...

By chance is this a VTA car. Sometimes those tall tires can cause problems of getting the car low enough. If not, I can't imagine what the problem is. What blocks are you running for the ride...

Well, looks like I fail reading comprehension again! I have two Mid Motor A800's and on both I left the AT67 washer in place BETWEEN the two belts on the drive pulley. I was looking at the Mid...

Thanks for this perspective. But I have always thought that undamped springs are never your friend. Luckily the carbon fiber has some internal damping. The aluminum chassis does not have internal...

I also struggle with why RC car designers like chassis flex so much. Here's my take on it:

For what it's worth, I do not like the front mustache body mount. I bought a used car that had this feature, so I left it alone. The front mustache moves the mounting point back and with the forward...

That's what I said, if you lose just 1 tooth, then the belt only shortens by 1.5mm. As I said, the overall length of the belt itself shortens by 3mm, but since it has 2 sides, then the running...

I'm still running my R1 17.5 V16 and it's still a rocket. I pull with the V21 guys, no problem. I do run the aluminum screw set, have it timed at 45 degrees and run a 4.15 FDR.
