Well, this is debateable. If its faster at all Ill be able to drive more than an inch off the boards the whole race and win... otherwise its gonna be tough. Maybe if I had that motor of yours lol

If the part number is the same, it is the same. If you need a reference chart, here is the T1 T2 T3 parts

Yes and no. Sometimes, running changes are made, but the part number stays the same (or they add "V2" to it, but it is in the description, not the part number). For example, the C hubs were revised to be compatible with the ECS driveshafts, but they kept the part number the same. So, while they *do* fit, they aren't 100% identical. The same thing is true about the steering knuckles. They were modified to allow more steering travel, but the part number is the same. If a hobby shop has old stock (like old C hubs), you might *not* be able to use the part even though the part number is the same. Just something to be aware of (especially if you are using the ECS driveshafts).

Building the car now. Everything goes together well just like all the previous versions. Only warning, the hudy turnbuckle tool that we have all been using for so long is not wide enough for the new aluminum ones. Everything else seems to be the norm.

just finished building

only a small note, from the first T2 (2006) the overall quality of the parts has deteriorated gradually...

Default What did they skimped on...

I don't think the include carbide trust/diff balls anymore or at least they don't look high grade. Shiny vs. dull hardened.

Parts fit ok? I think I'll wait for the T3 2010. Hinge pin blocks sure look weak. I would rather have the old style hinge pin blocks but have the parralell to the chassis. Also it would be slick if you could loosen the screws and slide in the shims in from the outside for quick changes.
