    How many donuts and braids have hit the dirt too?

    Sell your old chassis, you don't have to keep them. But everything moves on...otherwise we'd all still be running homebuilt chassis - and there would still be a tonne of them in your dead chassis box from design improvements you'd made....

    "a lot of wasted money"

    What, were hoping to run your La Cucaracha until you hit the grave? Lol

    Based on all the threads I could find, the X25 was introduced way back in 2010! Oldest mentions I can find of the Cheetah 11 go back to 2007. During that period the only other chassis I can think of that was introduced was the unfortunate ProSlot/Kelly FX. It was entirely time for a new chassis.

    While I run a one chassis class, on Wednesday night (based on a few unique reasons), new equipment once in awhile to pump a few $$$ into the raceways isn't the end of the world.

    Having spent some years in sheet metal shops, one of the bad natures for 'punched' blanks in that those cut from rolls of metal tend to have the memory of what part of the roll they came from and how the roll is fed into the punch makes a big difference in flatness. When the blanks are punched or cut from flat plates, they also remember THAT condition and flatness is something that is good for center sections on slotcars.
