Springs look long, strange if X-ray would go back to long dampers again..

What will the added cylindrical "blocks" between the holders for the anti roll bar do?

What is the reason for the screw set-up in the top deck? I normally remove the ones from the bulkhead in the middle at the spur gear, all 4 of them but leaves the rest. Will this be some kind of "middle" flex setting compared to that and keeping all the screws?
This is Alex Hagberg car,
I think it is a T4 but the body has a T3 sticker.

Those are both old pictures. The one above is not a T4.

Like Andrew says below, the first pic is a pre production t4. Different top deck, different layshaft pulley holder.

That's not a T4. Top deck has too few screws, among other differences. I think the first pic is a prototype of the T4, probably with the old shocks.

Yeah, after looking again I agree, some of the screws in the top deck has wrong palcements and the servo holder is different. Pre-production T4 is my guess.

Good day all.

Anyone tried removing some screws from the top deck to improve flex?

How can you say it is a T3 if the servo mount and camber link positioning is different than the T3? At best you can call it a prototype car. It is very common for the factory driver to run a old body when testing a new product.
Hell it is just a sticker that says T3.

OK my bad, it's a T3'12. The servo mount is different because there's no servo mount rofl.

I've tried it before but at my local track, it did help a bit more with grip but the car became more lazy feeling, really evident thru chicanes. I ended up putting all the screws back on the upper deck. The stock 2.2mm chassis already offers just the right amount of flex.

If your track is more bumpy, removing screws from the upper deck may help.

Thanks! Track is not bumpy so I'll just leave it as it is

Just look at it, it's a T3 12. The chassis, bulks are spread further apart, no servo mount, shocks are all different.

Yep on my home indoortrack it helpt me to have a new track record.
No bumpy track an the surface is kind of woven vilt and feel a bit like asfalt.
Thanks
