I have one and I was always scared of tweaking the chassis into a pretzel so I have not run it in anger.

So it just stays in its box.

I always thought they were sort of rare, am I wrong about that?

Yep. They're still commercially available at $11.75 each.

Thats good,it could be interesting added some sort of coil springs to the rear to control the roll as bit.

Bracing IS a must. A rear pan stop. Tripod the motor box. A lengthwise flag to motor stiffener is good. The front axle hole can be lowered as well since this frame IS intended for larger front OD tires.
