If people here want to keep an Xray but secretly would love to have a TCX, they can adapt the steering system for a start !

I guess some guys did the same with some Tamiya parts on a T3. With the TCX parts, it's also possible.

So, besides it being the trend lately to go back to this type of steering linkage, what is the major advantage? more linear feel? It should provide what is closer to steering rack type motion, it still does follow an arc, so not 100% linear motion though. This system mounts to the lower part of the chassis, so is isolated from the top deck, so will not influence, or be influenced as much by flex, which should be good.

anything else?

Thanks.

Yep, the feeling is quite smoother, with kind of very light natural exponential effect. The car is much easier to drive and its reactions are more predictable. At least,this is how I feel it.
The last thing is the huge amount of freed space for electronic (if a low profile servo is used), which allows a cleaner installation and better air circulation between components.

Tested out the T3 with a wider wheel base the front is at 188mm and the rear at 190mm.

For the apexs the car still flips over if pushing hard into the corner.

Monitoring the car chassis roll it shows clearly there is alotof weight shift in the corners.

Going to go back to the previous wheel base and switch to antidive and see if it helps out.

With the wheel base wider and on those measurements there is a little of understeer off throttle.

Shesha -- keep the front wide, add a bit thicker front shock oil. Try removing some front camber gain. Watch the ackerman too..

Try to see where the car flips ... on entry, middle or exit.

hehhehe...la i aint happy with it today, it was not easy to push as the previous setup because of the car width, and previously I was really cuttin corners hard, was so close to hittin 27 if the car did not flip in the last 2 corners... only issue is the apexs flippen the car over...

cheers
