Is a kraken x3 chassis stronger than a standard? Is stiff enough to flex, without bending? (Im thinking of there where the front top plate bolt on) I know the Chassis nose is stronger!!
Kraken RC X3 is the next generation Hi-Tech Chassis developed for the HPI Baja Series with newly re-engineered
Super Tough Polymer and fused with 4mm steel plate in the front kick up. IMHO i would say its lighter, tougher and more resistant to bending being 12mm thick in the front and 10 mm thick on the bottom,if it does bend it just flexes back. I run the x2 on my 5b and i love it. The hd top plate is a must have if you upgrade to this chassis in my opinion, i beleive i remember reading somewhere that u have a stainless top plate, that should work well. plus if you break it kraken has a no questions asked 3 time replacement warranty from what i understand.

Thank you Sam. Good Info.
Kraken must built a front top plate to!! My car take all its hits at the front. It will be excellent if the front flex and is also stiff enough to take the punishment. I have a ss-top plate, if the chassis flex, it still bends the top plat, that’s my problem.
