Will there be a version that's compatible with the XRay chassis? Perhaps with a one piece inside mount? I actually prefer toe blocks from an ease of adjustment standpoint. I fiddle with roll center a whole lot more than toe or width, and I just can't get the hang of shims on screws into toe blocks.

Is there a performance benefit?

How is the chassis flex compared with the standard T3'12 chassis and your older T3'11 chassis I linked to.

225' straight? eek! Time for a mod. Gears, maybe 3.9ish FDR depending on the motor. Ask around the track.

A couple of advantages of mounting the pins using this block system is you no longer have to worry about your arms binding from hitting objects or just normal driving, rear toe settings are more consistent. No plans for a '12 chassis for kit blocks that I am aware of. We are toying with the idea of offering carbon one piece shims in .5mm and 1mm to eliminate the need of having to use individual round shims for adjusting the pin height.

There's a bit more flex built into the XR3'12 chassis compared to the XR3'11 and the kit '12 chassis's. The XR3'12 is 2.25mm and narrower as well than the kit '12 chassis which yields more cornerspeed.

Soon, we went into production a few weeks ago.

Im running 4.0 on a layout that has about a 65- 70 foot long straight. Thats honestly a tough one because there is only so low you can go for blinky gears before you overheat it on any track. I would start maybe around a 3.5 fdr and check temps every 3 or 4 minutes

So the new blocks you showed in the pictures, those will only work with the Exotek chassis?

One piece shims would be really nice.

Anyone cutting the outer servo mount off the chassis? The "nub" drags on carpet pretty bad for me, may be causing some inconsistent handling??
