Default Chassis Stiffness

I did a search and I think I found my answer but I would like to confirm/clarify.

If I wanted to loosen the TC4 chassis up for say medium grip asphalt I would remove the stand-offs? Do I need to remove all of them or pairs or one at a time? Or would I remove some of the screws that attach the upper plate to the transmission and leave the stand-offs in?

Thought I should ask before I start chasing down a setup problem when it could be related to chassis stiffness.

Thanks in advance

for medium bite asphalt i would remove all 4 side standoffs.you dont want to loosen the screws on the top deck that go to the transmissions because this will allow driveshaft compression on an impact.let me know if you need any more help buddy.

I called the other day and was told that you are not running the satin chassis for the T2 anymore. Is this true? Second question. Will all of the preorders be filled with your current shipment? Can't wait to see it in person.
