if you guys want to be fast, buy a type-r. I guarantee you it that it will teach you not to crash. parts are cheap if you don't wreck.

Just finished up my kit and tried out different pinions to see what fit as I remember someone asking on here. I didnt try anything below a 30 but that fit fine and up to a 49 was as big as I could get on and get mesh. This was with a 104 spur. So there is a pretty large gap there to be able to use for 17.5 and 13.5 with the standard motor. That might be pushing the correct rollout for 17.5 on larger tracks with foam tires.

Hi Guys, just done the superglue tech tip to the countersunk screws for the suspension holders.Would a longer screw, say a m3x8-10mm give a bit more rigidity than the reccommended m3x6mm.Also going to locktite the suckers.

I wonder if using a Ti or Aluminum screw might be a better way to go on the front rear suspension mount. That way the screw will break before it rips through the carbon. I haven't got a T3 yet (still running the 007), but just looking at the pictures on the Xray site the suspension mount design just doesn't make sense. Why would they only support that part with one screw and have no bracing towards the centre of the car? The arm mount bolts onto the mount quite high up too, so there is more leverage to create torque on that mount in a crash. The front front mount that goes all the way across, which looks like it should hold up really good. [/Arm chair engineer rant]

Yeah Ti or Alloy screws might be the way to go.That way as you say they might brake before the chassis gets damaged.

I thought the same thing but you risk not being able to get the broken piece out and needing to replace the block. While better than a chassis still not ideal. Also not sure if it wouldn't just make it worse because the numb on the block might still rip through the chassis. Definitely aluminum rather that titanium. Titanium would be too strong to break easily.

-and of course the hinge pin holder tearing through the chassis

Anybody stateside experiencing these problems?

I already inspected my kit (EU edition) and it didn't have any issues thankfully.
I've got the line on my chassis; haven't checked the sway bar ball ends yet, the alloy blocks are fine, and I'm still skeptical of the last.

Opened my kit up...

Great news...sway bars ends look great, no lines on my chassis and holes look great...Thanks.

I look forward to running it on Saturday at West Coast Raceway.

Default Arm mount

While building my T3 I tried placing the one piece mount XRA302045-O on both the front and rear of the arms and it looks like that would work instead of some extra linking piece. This would help distribute some of the stress in a collision. The rear would have no problems clearing and the front would only need a little bit of dremel work to eliminate belt drag. Those who also have the car please take a look and let me know what you think because I'd like some other opinions before I order two more mounts.
