Default Chassis braces

Does the Z benefit from any particular points being stiffened? Do you run any?

Fender braces are really the only useful one, and not going to do much other than remove money that could be used for real improvements

The FM chassis is already very stiff. Unless you've got a specialized race suspension with competition tires, chassis braces will not help much, if at all.

If you need to add ballast because you are underweight, they are an option. Otherwise, anchors.

Ive been very happy with my underside 'H' brace ... I dont know if it does anything but dang it takes a beating that would otherwise be taken by the chassis itself...

Thanks for the input. I saw quite a few options on Z1 and ConceptZ. Figured there must be a reason someone putting RnD into those.
