the goal is to let the chassis do what it wants. when you tape the body you are actually squeezing to keep it on and that makes the entire car too stiff.

Hey Mantis,

Looks like another great product… Just curious, how did you keep your body on the chassis prior to your nylon post design? I currently use tape to prevent the body form coming off the chassis.

Yeah, I heard about the handout motors... I'm not really down with that, but whatever... Not like it will make a difference in the results. Once they see that the difference in laptimes will still be the same they won't be able to blame it on motors...
