The T3 is a very, very solid car. I had some trouble initially with front CV pins backing out and either breaking off or just tearing up the knuckle's. Other than that I broke only one rear hub carrier all last indoor season. Be sure to use the updated rear inner hinge pin mount for sure.

I see. Looks like I'll be buying a few extra rear hub carriers...

What about the front steering knuckle? I have a Cyclone, and on that car, the steering knuckles break a lot (and the c-hubs).

You won't be breaking C-hubs and knuckles on the T3 unless your hitting stuff....a lot!. The Cyclone is quite fragile compared to any Xray chassis (I've raced the Cyclone too). You're gonna love the T3 for sure!

Hey - if your coming to Jackson this saturday don't worry about parts... they don't call me RCAmerica East for nothing . honestly, there are a lot of xray runners at the track (along w/ our T.O.P. competition).

in all honesty, having a spare steering knuckle, left/right c-hubs, hinge pins, steering bushings, front arm, and rear arm. also make sure to buy a hard bumper - from xray or parma. the 2.8 springs in the front are pretty dialed too. we have a few T3 set-ups posted on forum.teamxray.com.

you should check out 'joey's setup from the past weekend for 17.5. his car was very easy to drive yielding a TQ + Win in 17.5T.

Atomic RC imports/makes this brand. They have had a gear diff for the 416 and just released the 38 tooth version for the T3. I'd like to see how it survives 13.5/Tekin and mod motors.
