The topdeck and chassis shapes will see slight optimization. Maybe the optimized servo mount will get thrown in. Perhaps the camber link plates will be optimized and lower with a wider range of optimized adjustment. That's about it.
I updated your post...think that's what you meant to say

P.s Although They Catch the Xray RRP but ALL other Kits comes With Alloy Steering Arms and Shocks Luxury&Plastic I don't think so LOL

Idk guys theres not much more any company can do to make this cars better ...the are pretty maxed out and this is the best any company can get this design.....now awesomatix is a company that has come up with a completley different design that is obvious to any one that it can carry more speed in the turns...but still I'SNT far superior to the rest.....i think the next chassis worth buying would be the one company that comes out with another completley different from anything weve seen chassis and then i will beleive its a must have car to stay competitive if its proven because its all about the driver but if a novice can beat a pro because of a chassis then i beleive that those changes actually make a difference.

I believe they also wish to find all new design to boost the sales but its not that easy...
they even tried to keep xray different in some areas but at the end of the day yokomo bd5 is the best car design and t3 12 is almost its twin brother with all race proven features...
Awesomatix great but I think its a bit over complicated...

Even the label that says it has been optimized has been optimized to catch your attention...

On the real, I am not sure what to think about the 2.0 chassis and 1.6 top deck. I ran them last night and my car felt a bit more inconsistent then with the stock chassis and top deck. I still need to do more testing but I think softer springs in conjunction with the thinner chassis and top deck might be required. It seems that running stiffer springs with the softer chassis may create some imbalance in the car. Anyone else have any feedback on the thinner chassis and top deck on the T3'12 on carpet?

I will keep you guys posted on what combination works best...

Thinner bottom deck works better with 2.0mm top deck.

When I swiched to the 2.0mm chassis and the flex topdeck on my s411 I went to a softer spring setup and it was a big improvement. The s411 Is a similar car to the t3 12 I have both. I think you are on the right path with your thinking. I am assuming we are talking asphalt....right...
On another note I ordered the center servo mount and the a-plus battery mounts and neither will fit on the VBC chassis, in case this saves someone money and time....
