The Smokem MX chassis works very well on the T3. A lot of Aussie racers ran this chassis on their T3 and felt it gave the car more steering without it being twitchy. For what it's worth I have the 417MX chassis on the 417 and can't fault in.

Nope. It's a great car but nothing new has come for them now that we are two versions into the T4.

Yeah your right. Now were into the home grown mod's that some guy's are thinking up. Caught a post somewhere about a chassis mod to accept the CSO aluminum servo brace. Supposed to really tighten up the steering feel.
ymmv

the best springs for asphalt are hpi silver springs all round, which is why you see them on most the cars at the big races, such as the asphalt rounds of the ets, worlds etc... I have tested many springs, and hpi are by far the best

I had a spare set if T4 shocks laying around, so I found a company named RACEBERRY RC. They have a T4 conversion towers set to lower the CG's on the T3. Look them up.

Just got my CSO floating servo mount from RCgoods.com. From Hong Kong to my house in just 7 days! It's a floating mount as this is where the newest designs seem to be taking chassis development. The mount was meant to bolt to the t3-12 CSO chassis, but I'm using the VBC chassis. Just measured the bolt spacing and carefully drilled a 2nd. hole in the chassis, mounted right up! The servo mount allows it to float (on the one side) so as to let the chassis flex even more. I'll have it out club racing this Friday, so I'll report back how it feels.

Anyone use these springs with sucess? I remember in the early T3 2012 days Yokomo springs were popular with team drivers, are these those springs? I am little afraid with the trend of short shocks and springs for newest cars, so I'm not sure if these are short as well and if they will fit.

Those are very popular on carpet, and will work fine on the T3.

For tarmac I'd go with HPI Silvers instead:

Of course this will be an easy update for older Xray models,

And the adjustment process should be quite simple...

I ran into a funny thing when I went through my old car before I hand it over to my dad. I measured the rear toe in and found that it only had 2deg. Everything is built as it should so there's no worrys there. I couldn't find the problem, it looked as the inner hinge pin had more toe in than the wheel so I took a look at the hubs. Both said 0 toe in so it should make any difference on what side they're on. Anyway I swapped side and guess what? All of a sudden I had 3 deg toe in on both wheels! Anyone else had the same experience?
