Isn`t mr huddy, supposedly a engineer? So how did he come up with a shotty design like this one. Thank god i didn`t follow everyone and buy the t3.
I`ll wait till x-ray fix the mess that they call the t3, then i`ll probably get one.
Until then, i`ll stay put driving the photon, no problems with the TOP WHATSOEVER.
Good engineer no doubt.... bad crash tester though

Default Like I said I'll wait for a redesign.

It's sad that Xray let this one out of the bag. Feel good that all us "Engineer" want-a-be called it. What do we know? lol I'm sure they will do something soon.

no doubt it doesn't feel good. But it is a new platform and a lot of new platforms have had trouble when first released. Even the photon you are driving now had a couple of issues that needed to be resolved. This isn't unique to xray.

Yep, still need to do that. I'll have it done before I race it next weekend.

I bought those tires from Nexus and took a look at them and immediately decided that it was money wasted. Thought they would work fine for pictures though.

You should contact their support about those tires. Nexus is a true stand up company and been good to me in situations like this.

C'mon Nick, Hudy has probably tested the car to how fast and generally speaking good it works on tracks where it's not very likely someone would crash it, not to mention with pilots who don't crash. I am pretty sure they will adress the issue appropiately, but we need a little patience.

I've done what a couple of other guys have done from the xray forum.Put a 3x35mm suspension pin in the lower hole of the front rear suspension holders which have been causing all the problems.Hopefully it will stop the holders from twisting and cracking the chassis in a severe impact.

Might suggest an easier solution. If the driver can run it on appropriated speed according to the track size... and always run the car at its controllable condition.

If Xray could ever comes out with a touring car which can withstand very high speed impact into curbs(bro, its concrete...)... We'll have bigger repair job then. Hmm... might need to get the Civil worker numbers ready now.

Finished my T3 and am headed out for a race. Hopefully it's as optimized as advertised.
