Any problems after extending/shortening chassis

Post by spider » Mon Feb 10, 2014 7:17 pm

I was thinking on extending or shortening my chassis and before I did, I wanted to hear if anyone noticed any changes in the handling. Im only looking to extend/shorten by an inch but we all know that could possibly throw alot off.
Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks

What do you plan to do with it?

it will definitely change the characteristics of the chassis. longer tends to give you a slower chassis response, while shorter makes it more twitchy. overall, the biggest effect could be weight bias, which might require you to change battery location, depending on which direction you go.
