There is no standoffs used with the new 2mm topdeck, I think the hole you are talking about in the front is where the servo saver cover goes, not sure which one in the back your talkin bout

Default General Question

Using an average droop value (common set-up sheet), should the arms appear to be level with the chassis, above the chassis, or bellow.

mrrc, are you running foam tires or rubber tires?

Default Rubber

Rubber. Mainly I'm wondering if it's normal for the arms to be above level, with a droop value of about 5

Similar set-up as before. If the car is way off, the narrow top deck will not solve all its woes, but it can help.
Like SW said, it seems to aid overall grip when installed. Also, there are no multi-flex settings or chassis posts, so there is only one flex setting when it is installed.

"above level"...do you mean angled down all together, or lower than the chassis itself?

Thank God! THe xray Eu top deck was ugly, as well as the weir looking rear chassis brace- it looks like its for carpet. Now the new top deck makes it look like a asphalt car, as its supposed to be. But what about that rear CF brace? Can it be removed and replaced by the heat sink-style brace for the '06 T2?

Wow!! $37 for a top deck? I can buy a CF sheet for $5 and cut out and exact replica. Why is it costing so much? Also, this is what it should have come with from the beginning!

The 2mm Topdeck comes with the rear brace like the one on the 1st t2, why is it so expensive, cause the tag on it says XRay

there is always options.i am about to release our new asphalt chassis kit which include a 2.25mm chassis and 2 pc. top deck for 99.99.the material is a satin finish quasi isotropic carbon fiber which is cut to allow for chassis flex but the chassis will have more memory.just something to consider.

Would you post pictures of it when available. I'm looking for options to convert my US edition to an asphalt car but I'm on a budget $99 sounds better than $90+$37 I would have to pay for the EU chassis and the new topdeck plus if I went with yours that would save me the chassis filing
