Stock chassis warp

I originaly bought a boxed microsizer, the one with the controler, and later bought a speed set about a week later. I have found that the way the chassis on the original holds the gears, axle and motor wasn't as good/efficient as the chassis on the speed set. By using and swapping back and forth the same gears, axle, motor and heatsink into the two chassis I found that everyting moved smoother in the speed set chassis. Just by rolling the car by hand I could tell that there is less resistance in the speed set chassis. I couldn't notice a speed difference while driving but I'd bet there is. It was quieter too... the gears meshed a little better on the speed set chassis(even when the other stock gears were put in it)

By looking closely I noticed that the original chassis possibly didn't come out of the mold as cleanly as the speed set chassis. Now I'm not saying it's faulty or wrong but are these things a crap shoot as far as getting a fast stock chassis???
I've read posts where pepole say that one stock car is faster than another and now I can understand why that is possible.
Anyone else notice this and come to any conclusions
