I race there and I like it. The carpet track is 100x60... Most guys are running Xray FK and most of the rookies are driving Losi xxxs..

Thanks for your reply about colors Joe B !

Then I wonder, what chassis kit do you recommend for me ?
( I am racing indoor on carpet with rubber tires aka Sorex 28 / LRP 27 )

Should I go for 350 or split chassis ? if you make split chassis for Xray FK then ?

I recall reading that Josh Cyrul said the split chassis is too much weight forward for rubber tires. Handled great for 3 or 4 laps-then overheated the tires.

IN 90% of situations-except high bite carpet-I would recommend the 350 chassis over the split. I have run them both.

mike,
the split cell chassis will have a tendency to heat up the front tires on asphalt.

So basically the split cell chassis is better suited for foams, and the 350 is more of a rubber tire chassis?
