Not really. Narrowing the rear of the car will give your car some push. It actually make more rear traction.

But based on what Hagberg has said about the mod to me it suggests more steering which would be less rear grip:

"This mod makes the rear of the car quite a lot narrower which results in more turn-in and mid corner rotation. The car will be more aggressive and difficult to drive but faster for some conditions."

I read somewhere that he made the modification to get a shorter rear camber link which helps give more steering.

I've found it improved steering, but haven't yet found it made the car more difficult to drive, I have kept in on at every track I've been to.

The original question was which chassis gives more rear grip. Would like to know the same.

The 2.0 mm chassis is for tracks with less grip so if you have to ask this question more than likely the 2.0mm chassis.

Post T3 Gear Chart PDF

I wasted money buying gears before I realized that certain gear combos just wont fit into the T3 so I decided to make my own chart which clearly shows which gear combos fit and which don't. Thought I would share.
It should be fairly accurate, I test fit several different gears and then extrapolated the rest of the chart from there.

Thanks

If you can confirm this for sure, let me know and I can adjust the chart. I have those gears so I can double check this when I get home tonight.

Not raced for 12 years, so learning curve again.
Basic question for you guys for this Xray T3 2012 kit.
Instructions state using a thread lock at certain points, what brands work well these days and what is generally suitable for all kits?
(I also just got a F104 kit).

As the chassis are carbon fibre (new to me) just want to make sure thread locks that won't cause chemical issues etc.

Most important thing though is a good thread lock that works so your car doesn't fall apart!

Blue, you only need to use thread lock on the cvd's.
