On the latest Mossetti chassis two piece and one piece pans are available for each pan weight.
What handling differences do you find comparing two piece to one piece pans?
For flatter tracks such as an American King or Hillclimb:
Which chassis for Grp 10 with an LMP body?
Which chassis for Gtp with a sealed fk motor?

Thanks for any advice.

I have tried this chassis with FK motors and LMP bodies on our totally flat track
The standard 2piece pans are the best here.
I have found the front of this Defender relatively and disappointingly soft and easily bent compared to the Patriot and JK C43

Rough track? Go with the 3 piece.  Defender is the way to go.  Look at race reports, the clock doesn't lie.

Three piece Patriot or Defender is my choice for Group 10. Light steel pans seem to work best.

 For GTP the aluminum pan is the way to go with your choice of center section. Usually taped up too.

I have seen some comments about the Defender bending easily but I have not bent one yet in spite of a few big crashes.

I prefer a 3-piece chassis primarily because, from my experience, a 1-piece pan can be a headache to get to touch properly everywhere when it gets bent (or even when it's new).


I have a Striker 3-piece chassis with aluminum pans that I finally got working well enough to race last week with a GT Coupe body.  With a NASCAR body, steel pans might  be the best choice because of less down force.


Part of the tweaking I've been experimenting with the Striker is limiting some of the pan movement and it seems to have helped.
