(1) the tweek to the point that the chassis is 1mm lower at the front of the motor mount than the f or r. and if i fix it with in 2 clean perfect laps its right back to the same tweek(belly).
(2) also the steel its constructed of makes the car tail heavy which is great for asfault but on carpet its just to much . rear end tends to swing out more so than my photons did/ do given the same weight distribution. for this reason i added 21g to front of car to get back my 51%R/49%R front dist...

other than that COULD ASK FOR A BETTER CHASSIS.
After driving and learning to set-up the evo. I would NEVER switch back to TOP. I have found it works very well on carpet. Photon set-ups will not work on the evo. Evo is the easiest to set up and drive car I have ever owned.
