    have you tried the car on a race track before and after the belt tensioner? Guaranteed that you WILL notice the difference in the "flexing" of the chassis.

    Have not raced this one yet waiting for my sway bars and 2 speed to be delivered, I have had a bv1 with a single speed and have never noticed the ''FLEX'' people talk about could you explain please?

    Also never raced on a track
