Default Aluminum Chassis Tweak Tool/Plate

I found a Aluminum Chassis Tweak Tool before and cant find it now. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

It was an aluminum plate that you use, milled for a few cars, xray and rdx I think.

Anyone know what I am talking about.

Thanks

I have the X-ray T2 and use it every race day... Hell, I leave it on the car after racing to make sure the chassis is straight while it sits and rests.

SO what do you do? you screw the plate on to the bottom of ur chassis to make sure it is not tweaked? (sorry complete newb), thx for posting pics and helping me out. its nice to see "friendly racers" is not a myth.

You loosen the bulkheads and chassis plates, screw it down flat on the aluminum plate, then re-tighten everything while the chassis is completely flat.

Here is the process:
1. put car on plate with battery in place.
2. loosen up top deck
3. screw car to plate
4. tighten top deck
5. unscrew car from plate.

Total time: 5 minutes....


Here is what X-ray recommends to remove tweak from chassis:

TIPS FOR REMOVING TWEAK FROM THE T2 CHASSIS
REMOVING TWEAK AFTER A CRASH
Retighten the screws only slightly, not fully.
To tighten the screws slightly, start with the screws at the front v
of the top deck. When tightening the screws in the front of the top
deck, push on the chassis through the front shock tower. Tighten the
screws lightly.
When tightening the screws in the rear, push on the top of the
rear bulkheads so you push the car against the droop gauges.
If the chassis is flat and lays flatly on the droop gauges, then
it is correct. Now tighten all screws fully. Again follow the same
proccedure.
When tightening the screws fully in the front of the top deck, push on
the chassis through the front shock tower.
When tightening the screws fully in the rear, push on the top of the
rear bulkheads so you push the car against the droop gauges.
If the chassis is not flat then repeat this procedure again.
Release the screws of the top deck. The released tension will
allow the chassis and top deck to return to their normal standard
flat position.

Oh... thanks for the post. This makes it much clearer hehe. It is amazing what we do for our little cars to get them "just right".
