It's a 6.5t motor, but I'm afraid I don't have any experience of motors that high. Hopefully someone else can provide more info.

It has a mazda6 speed body and a set of Jaco blues.I have always run sorex or takeoff.
I am planning on a 10.5 motor .We will be runnig on a smallish twisty track.

hey guys,

just a small question, i'm considering buying a T3 rubber edition, just wanted to know if the aluminum shocks are still hard to set (rebound) as the NT1 ones, i bought the aluminum ones and switched back to plastic because of the hard time they gave me setting the rebound!!! i saw few T3s with Tamyia shocks!! why is that ??

cheers

Can't answer your question about Xray shocks being hard to set, but the reason some guys use the Tamiya/TRF shocks is simply because the shocks are some of the smoothest and easiest to work on shocks on the market. Schumacher shocks are very comparable with the TRF shocks, and are a cheaper option.

Default Futaba 9551

For those of you running a Futaba 9551 in your T3? Did you use the rubber gromets that come with the servo or use washers instead? The fit on mine seems slightly streched where the button screws are close to the outside of the lugs, wondering if they would just tear out in a hard impact?

i don't have the servo, but on electric cars using the gromets is unnecessary. just use metal washers to prevent the small screws from ripping through the ears of the servo case. you can also double stick the servo down to the chassis for added security.

Before I switched to the Xray T3 I drove Tamiya TRF cars for 3 years. I purchased the aluminum shocks for the Xray and realized that they are essentially the same as the Tamiya TRF shocks except for the shock bladders. The TRF bladders fit fine in the Xray aluminum shocks and now they work exactly like my old TRF shocks did.

I too use TRF shocks for my T2 09 EU as in my limited experience, works better for our asphalt track (medium to low grip, lay out is technical but with about a 40 feet straight). There is a black coloured TRF shock, part number 84008 and rcmushroom carries this as I purchased it from them 2 weeks ago.

Though, i still use the stock xray springs as it gives me better and consistent traction.

I attached pictures for reference, performs very well and looks good too!

The shocks are not fully attached as the kit will be rebuilt within this week.
