You won't get them completely dead because the old bladders allow the piston to bounce off of them. The low profile bladders will help a good deal but I find them a bit more fragile than the old ones.

Second, you should drill a small hole through the plastic shock cap. Essentially you are allowing the air between the bladder and cap to vent.

Yes the tamiya bladders fit. They are pretty much identical to the new xray bladders. If you take your time in shock building making sure that there is zero rebound and the damping feels roughly the same it will make a great deal of difference to the handling of the car. also you need to drill the shock caps for zero rebound. Drew Ellis was meant to release a shock building video for the car but i have never seen it anywhere.

Many racers use this fan! I believe Robbie Dodge uses one and he can confirm if he wishes to!

of all of you that converted your t3 with the lipo chassis plate, which one did you use? Are you happy with it? I want to replace the chassis on my T3 and I am hoping to put a lipo chassis on it but I dont know what to use. Smokem or exotec or replace with Xray stock one.

If your meaning a narrow chassis, if you use the Xray stock piece, you'll have to upgrade to the dual bellcrank steering as well. Pretty sure they didn't make a narrow plate for the '10 stock. So your choices would be the smokem or the exotec only.

No I meant the 6cell chassis that comes on the EU car as for the other chassis yes I mean the narrow one. What are the differences that people noticed between the three chassis.

For my asphalt track conditions, the original T3 6-cell EU chassis had a lot of drag marks on it. Going to the Exotech chassis reduced that for me and made the car more predictable in turns without experiencing any drag. On carpet, I have yet to make my T3 Exotech handle as well as my Corally RDX Phi did. I have not gone to the T3 2011 because I have concerns about the new dual lever steering setup.

I do have a near perfect T3 6-cell EU chassis plate with all the edges prepped for cheap. Doubt I will go back to it; so, PM me if interested.

Are these "NT1 composite wheel hubs" what came on my T3R?
Thanks, GeorgeC

Just curious what concerns you have about the dual steering? It's dual steering... Most TCs are using it.

if you have space issues then you can use this.
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=689&id=9848


both are fully adjustable,you can basically position the fan anywhere around the length of the motor. they both come with high rpm fans (15,000+rpm) that are good for cooling 30degF to 40degF cooler compared to no fans.

It looks like they are both out of stock, you can buy them here too. r1wurks.com
