    Got myself a MA chassis to use for a little R&D. This set up, I believe, has some potential. The mid and rear rollers are for the straights and have very little drag. The front and rear are for the turns, with the o-ring front, it really seems to plant the nose. My testing consists of starting slow and working my way up in speed. Currently running 3.7/1 gears and a Torqued Tuned motor. Have a Rev-Tuned motor and 3.5/1 gears coming. So far, it is very stable. I'll update as I progress.

    Rev-Tuned motor and 3.5/1 gears installed. Noticeably faster, and still staying planted on the crossover. Going to try and get to Hobbytown and try it on the big track this week.

    Hi, for the front, you can actually make it bumperless and add on a HG carbon stick to make it lower which is good for lower center of gavity.

    See attached pic.

    For me, i am stuck with this bumperless chassis which is a pain when u want to construct pivot/FL bumper (Adaptive build).

    Just trying something outside the box. On the straight it uses the middle and rear rollers. With both being at zero angle, I'm shooting for less drag. The front rollers only come into contact in the corners and crossover.

    With this chassis being for R&D, I don't want to cut it up. Right now, this set up is going to get duplicated on my Tuned Class car.
    Car wasn't staying on track with open motor, going to try a different front set up, still keeping the front rollers for turns only.
