What's up with the steel G7 chassis? Heard of them but no one selling them yet that I can find. With G27 Lite cars with very high lap totals I wonder how open cars will do using them? I'm sure they might be a bIt more rugged than the G27 Lite chassis as their opens.

 

Thanks for any input.

Earl,

 

The Wing car classes are all about speed and, simply put, aluminum chassis are faster because they're lighter. That's why none of the top Wing guys run anything else.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

I have also been told that the aluminum chassis heat sinks the motors better so they don't run as hot and last longer. The G27 stuff runs cooler in comparison.

Thanks for the info, and yes. I agree with you. Phil, the aluminum chassis does act like a heat sink
