I was just simply showing ppl a pic of an adjustable top plate that someone made.........

go ahead jump to some more conclusions....DA
Assuming that's a ball end attached to the front, how do you control twist? it's going to twist until the ball can't rotate anymore, fore/aft flex isn't nearly as important imo.

yes Mike ....the block adjusts back and forth ....works surprisingly well ....he just made it to find out what top plate he wants.....if the two available are not what he likes he just will make a custom top plate of his own thickness ...

Nice Nash....that looks like a back and forth deal with the two stand-offs in the middle..Dans car there's no fore and aft ...just flex side to side...

when the rear belt starts to fray on the sides, does this mean it is too loose or too tight? i have it on the loosest setting I'm pretty sure.

Usually just means it's worn out.

As bits of crud etc get pulled through the pulleys they slowly take their toll on the belt.

After a hiatus from on road do to 1/8th Offroad I'm ready to get back in the game! Both of my x rays are now ready. The t3 12 for practice so I can stop getting my butt kicked and the xb9 for the rc pro race next weekend.

I was able to mount a TC3 body post to the center slot of the front tower with a washer over the bolt to reach both sides of the slot. Works fine for me.
