Can anyone give me the weights of the standard T3 Bumper, T4 bumper and the T3 hard bumper in grams please.

My standard T4 bumper was actually starting to tear and being quite thin was flexing down and touching the ground causing the front end to appear to judder and understeer under braking.
Just trying to work out the best solution but need the weights to help with the decision.

Thanks
Skiddins

Do you know what that bumper weighed once you'd shaved it down.

The T3 hard bumper started out at 22 grams. After we sanded it down it weighed 9 grams.

Still going strong too.

Maybe a stone or crud in the pulley, you should get months out of the belts...

I'm running with Paul and many other fast T4 drivers this weekend @ the hudy championship race car has felt great has taken many abusive spills and havent broke 1 part. Let Paul check my car over with his Cleveland set up on it and he thought I had no droop...(I set front with gauge @1-1.5mm & rear @ 2-2.5mm of travel) he put his magic wrench to it and the Paul touch (as if it was his car he said) wow he added like 3.5-4mm of droop f&r!! Drove car and Damn it made it 2x more consistent thru the apex . Then ran 2.3-2.6 progressive all around a bam this car can do magic things now . It's nutz how this works o chassis isn't draging anymore either...

Theirs 10 T4 here this weekend and no-one has broke or stripped a gear. Yesterday I shifted my motor into the spur in a backwards crash around the sweeper... But out of 10 major wrecks I've had that was the only time that happened. I have a 2012 I will trade u along with some boot . Lol

No stripped spurs here or any real issues with the car. I don't like the motor mount, but it isn't causing me any issues.

I've turned 500+ laps ran 4 qualifiers today and have 1 and a main tomorrow . My 11yr son has probably turned 1000 laps with his usgt T4 and he did break one inner hinge pin mount.
