In terms of stiffness the XRC with the "old" wide top deck will be significantly stiffer. So for foam racing on carpet the 3mm chassis with the optional top deck that was used at the Snowbirds will probably be best. For outdoor racing as well as indoor racing with rubber tires the 2.5mm chassis will be great I think. But time will have to tell what works best when. We are still testing and learning the car ourselves.
This might sound dumb but...

Why would you want a flexier car? Even if a 2.5 will be just fine for outdoor, why not throw in the 3 so it'll work on all surfaces. Does pavement need a flexier car or something?

I'm such a carpet racer
