Strange, I have the IP5600 50c packs and they fit fine with both the STD Xray chassis as well as the exotek and smokem chassis that I have tried.

On all the chassis' they clear under the top deck with no issues what so ever and I run the corally connectors to the front of the car.

No idea on the first bit, remove the two screwws that attach the top deck to the layshaft mounts.

You have to think of your shock to shock tower as a two dimensial adjustment. If you find that moving a shock up and down via the shock tower holes changes the way your car feels, when you do the spacer at the top, it does the same thing, but in the forward momentem aspect. So putting a spacer in (or forward angle change of the shock) will give more forward bite. No spacers will make the shock neutral, and spacers in the lower arm will make the shock feel softer in a forward feel adjustment. (Like moving the bottom of the shock to a outer hole on the arm, but effects forward feel instead of side to side feel.)

For your corner entry issue you could try a thicker rear sway bar. Also possibly a ackerman change, but be careful of that as a extreme ackerman change could give better turn in, but will kill the corner speed, this should be done in small steps.

Was anyone else hugely disappointed to find no turnbuckle wrenches in their T3 kit? None of the LHS stock them here in Seattle so I had to wait several days to get one from an online shop.

I made the same jump last month. Get ready for some steering that the Corally never had. I am using a 25% rebound per Jeff Hastings' setup for the Reedy Race that is posted on the Xray website. No squeaking.
