Default Which has the better front end, DIMEC metal +8?

Hi, Change from losi 22 to the dex210 (v1.5 ish) and have struggled with lack of front end especially on corner exit when grip comes up.

I'm running the Dimec version B +8 chassis and wondering if anyone has compared it to the +8 metal chassis and if the front end any better with it?

I found that the standard type B DIMEC chassis can flex too much on higher grip surfaces, affecting the handling handling particularly during cornering. Depending on how high the grip is, I would recommend the Type B DIMEC20 or Aluminium chassis.

Great thanks, think that is exactly what i am experiencing. Car handles well in low grip but when grip comes up is very vague.

You can also try a bit less front droop for more on power steering

For the sake of anyone else with these issues a +8 metal chassis and a -2mm lrc rear block gave me an extra lap and half on quite a big track so a massive improvement.
