How it performs and compare with Smokem and TRF Lipo chasis?
We had the Exotek in my son's car in the worlds. Asked a TRF team member after the race about driving feel and performance difference compared to the TRF parts they already had at that time. The comment was that Exotek is very close in performance and feel to the TRF update chassis.

My son didn't want to put the new TRF parts to his car yet as we just got it a few days before the last race of our national series.

3Racing site says this diff needs 3.5mm blades? Tamiya blades are 3mm... When will you have the 3.5mm blades from 3Racing?

I must have missed this when I first read Kentech's report from the worlds

For people like me that change shocks and springs all the time, the new style of ball joints the dampers mount on are awesome! On my old 416 I had replaced the standard joints with the hex headed ones, but after a while they strip the arms. I had considered using the shock top and ends from TOP or XRAY shocks to make this happen but if tamiya are going to offer the ball joints in the same size as the current ones then that would be a much easier solution
