    Just curious if anyone could give me some feedback on this chassis. I found a lightly used one and was thinking of buying it. Using it to practice TAG a little and race LO206.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    I would be ready to get two 30mm body clamps and cut that front cross bar so you can remove for LO206 then replace for tag.

    I weigh about 200 lbs. 5′ 10′. Do you have four stokes on any of yours. The website says that the elite was built for clone and LO206, but I don’t see why a LO206 wouldn’t fit on a rapido.

    I’ve had confirmation from Italian Motors that they recommend the Rapido V for 4-stroke applications.  If you go to their website, they often have used 4-cycle packages advertised on the Rapido frames.

    No need to do any cutting of anything (maybe if you have a mid-00’s Rapido, but not a 2013).  Run a soft axle in the rear.

    What is the minimum front track width which can be set on the Rapido?  From the photos, the spindle and hub appear to be set very wide.
