The stock chassis is drilled for a number of different batt and servo configurations. It's got alot of flex and looks like a piece of swiss cheese. Jason has achieved no , and i mean NO flex as well as moving the batteries forward and in tword the center.

Just a question. Why is it that colored carbon fiber is weaker than regular black carbon fiber?

I actually haven't noticed that it is, but if it is I would have to think it is very little and that it wouldn't make a difference.
