I am not saying this chassis will not have a different flex characteristic than the stock. It will by nature as it is 2mm. So it will have a different amount of flex. Just because the battery slots are not there and it is 2mm it will not equal the flex of the stock. It just will not have equal flex. The T3 has as close to equal flex as possible for an Xray.

I guess if you need a chassis this is a good low cost alternative.
I guess I should of used the term "MORE equal" then the stock chassis

Why is equal flex so important to some of you guys????

Will it help to lower lap times or give a good feeling that you have semi-equal flex?

I'm just curious how everyone is determining that they have flex, and then if its equal flex? Are you putting a deflection meter on the corners of the cars? Or some kind of scale? Is this based purely on handling characteristics and if so how do you know that everything else on your car is equal?

i don't know about equal flex, semi equal flex, right left balance, forward rear balance or whatever the speed term of the week is,

but I do know that by simply unscrewing the botton plate along with the top deck and replacing it with the exotex parts, and no other setup change, my Mi3 went .5 per lap faster.

If it works half as good on the xray, then its worth getting.

Ritchie, you went faster only because we were running oval in the opposite direction that day

but seriously, I'm glad they came out with a chassis that has symmetry left to right. It can only be better, mo betta or whatever the case is , it is a refinement of the shipping chassis.

??

It will make the chassis more consistent.... more consistent means easier to drive, easier to drive means better lap times. Is it really that hard for you to understand? Having a properly setup, well balanced car, in all regards, will always give you faster lap times, and that includes a chassis that flexes as close to semetrically as possible.

T3 has the best cornering speed i have ever seen
009 is slower than the T3
get a T3 not a 009 and stay stock and you will see the corner speed that they carry
