I race an NSR Corvette at our local club (North Staffs) which now goes very well so much so that other members have told me
don't mess with it, so I've just purchased a second one to see If I can improve on the first one.

Can anyone tell what does the Extra Light chassis weigh compared with the Hard chassis assuming that's the same as the
Soft & Medium chassis.

Also compared to the Soft / Med / Hard chassis how stiff is the Extra Light chassis.

The difference is so minimal, it's not worth the hassle. The biggest issue with the yellow, extralight chassis's is they don't line up with the body posts or the motor mount like the original. If you put a yellow chassis side by side with an original you'll notice there's a difference of 4-5mm in length between the two and this is where they've lost the weight, by making the yellow chassis slightly smaller.
I literally spent hours lining everything up, which nearly resulted several times in the whole thing being thrown into the garden. Don't do it to yourself, you'll be reaching for the diazepam before you're finished

i dont know about the extra lite but the general rule of thumb on stiffness is a more flexible chassis for plastic tracks and a stiff-stiffer chassis for wood tracks. the motor pod should be very stiff,[between motor and back wheel] you dont want any flex between pinion and gear. thats taken care off by loosend screws?-springs. john

Thanks for the few replies so far and from Pete-Slot for his pm, from the way I've worded it you would think I was wanting to
use the x-light chassis, actually I was going to try a Hard (white) chassis but thought asking about the x-light v the rest might
get the answer's I required, on reflection an e-mail to NSR might have been more appropriate.

Ey Up Guys.

Hey "no 27" you are absolutely right.

I used heat treatment to straighten a Capri chassis , and awful probs getting the pod to fit and achieve movement afterwards.

Whatever you choose to do, install the pod before you use the treatment.
