Stole my son's T2 '008 to use at the IIC. I now have a nearly complete set of Xray springs...the colored ones!

Anybody know the conversions from the "numbered" springs to the colored ones?

Hi Shesha,

(By the way that Kuwait indoor track looks great!)

Can you tell me what effect it has having 75% rebound at rear and 25% at front, as i'm always searching for more rear grip, particullarly mid corner and corner entry rear grip.

Yes bill you are correct. You have to add about 10 grams to get it up to weight with the 9551.

This iŽve tried - sure, but there is $29 shipping which seems a lot to me - if the item cost $75..
But iŽve already orderer "Smokem" T3 lipo chassis - much cheaper inc. shipping, i hope it will be fine as well, looks so similar..

You won't be disappointed with the Smokem chassis. Very nicely made.

I got one of the Smokem Chassis also, and I agree with Pablo. Very nice work, everything fit great.

How are you guys only adding 10-20 grams to get it to weight. I had to add 60 grams to get it to 1420gms. I am trying to find out the best weights and place to add it to get the car balanced front to back and side to side. I have the XRAY black lipo balancing weights but they do not fit the T3, and i have the chrome ones too.

Lol at the reedy race I had to add a 105 grams!! That put me at 1430 so I did not have to worry about being under.
