what say ya'll
Have you ever put a deflection meter on a stock chassiss to see how much torsional twist you get out of stock chassis over a "lipo special chassis", and why do they continue to run thinner chassis in rubber. Just some ?'s that have me scratching my head. I also remember a chassiss that had similar cut outs on both sides of the chassiss, I think it was a Corally, but they aren't continuing that process either. I thought the whole idea behind the lay of the matting of a carbon fiber plate could be manipulated to twist whichever way the designer wanted it to, stiff or floppy.
