Someone told me that Lutz seals his chassis with pink fingernail polish because everyone knows pink will make you go faster.

IIGQ4U- Awesome job on the car, it looks really, really good! How much weight did you have to use to balance the car left to right?
*edit* just noticed those pics were 3 pages back lol.

Thanks WheelNut...

I added 1.56 ounces or about 44 grams. The weight is on the chassis but I am thinking about placing a bit of it to the outside of the battery so that I can get away with using less. You can just barely see the weight in front of the battery in the second pic. I wrapped it with black strapping tape. I also have a small piece of weight just behind the battery as well.

Mine and my friends were spot on, front and back.

If it's of, loosen the screws under the car, press down on the suspension, then re tighten.

I would highly suggest the Parma Ultimate Bumper - XRAY T2 - #8053.
This thing is ridiculously stiff, this will be standard issue on all my xray's.
The bumper is slightly thick so you can pocket out the bottom and have it go over the lower bumper so that any impact force is transferred to the right parts.

T3 + Parma bumper =

Based on the few reports of the problem with chassis after crashes we have organized last weekend a crash test session. Around 30 local drivers, mostly with T3, participated and tested at a very difficult track with strong pipe boards and triangle designed corners. There were hundreds of crashes during the day with some of really brutal crashes in full power but none of the chassis have broken. As we could not simulate any of the reported situation we made another test. We took production chassis, mounted suspension holder, fixed the chassis into a clamp and used hammer to hit the suspension holder directly with huge force but still with no breakes. I took a short video with small photo camera and will put it somewhere to see.

On the other hand we believe to those reports where after a crash the chassis was injured. Maybe it was just the "correct" angle or just the proper crash. But I want to point out that even in such a situation when the material is injured around the holder, it still can be used.

The T3 was designed for high competition racing. The bulkheads were designed to get maximum steering and traction and that is why the single stands are used as they were purposely designed for being single stands and they were proved to be strong enough in long term tests. For those drivers who experience crashes and injuries to the chassis we have now quickly designed optional 1-piece alu suspension mount which will reinforce the chassis. This alu holder is now in production and will be ready to ship by end of this week. More details including part number will be posted asap. I just want to point out that the 1-piece alu holder will reinforce the chassis but will also make the front suspension stiffer which will make the car little less steering responsive.
