What weight (pound rating) are the springs that came with the T3? It would be good to know in case I need to make some adjustments at the track tomorrow evening.

What was the problem, may I ask? I run a T2 007 and am looking at replacing those. Not the C hubs though. I am not sure they make aluminium C hubs for the ECS driveshaft either.

Default Yeah it looks like it's taking some....

good hits there, but from the direction he's hitting it gives the standoff the most support. He's striking it the strongest leverage point. What about a side impact? It's the weakest angle, and has the least surface area support . It will be interesting to see if Xray eventually goes to their new mounts as a kit change.

Default looks like alot of neg. comments about the car there...

but the new ones look stronger for side impacts for sure. I still like the Pro 4 blocks detail/design better, but it's a start. Using one piece shim is much easier and faster to install with more surface area across the chassis. I understand this design may have less chassis flex but traction goes up at major events anyway, right? I'll still wait for their next T? or Rpro model. My guess is the next change will be tie rod links like the, TC4, Pro 4, BD5 or the 416. Orange is still for lol Otherwiss, I love many of Xay's features.

According to the UK Distributor the optional 1 piece front is free now and will be included in future kits? Has anyone heard from RCAmerica about doing the same for the US customers?



From the UK Xray Distributor Site.

This new part will be included as option in all future T3 kits & provides stronger front end for indoor tracks with unforgiving track markers. Please note this cars was designed around the small seperate suspension mounts & this #302047 one piece will stiffen the front end & reducing steering.

RC DISCO WILL PROVIDE FREE OF CHARGE (AT ITS COST) THIS PART TO ANY UK T3 OWNERS WHO FEEL THEY NEED THIS EXTRA STRENGTH, please email direct to [email protected]

UPDATE XRAY ANNOUNCED THAT THEY SHIP FOR FREE TO T3 OWNERS
THANKS XRAY SUPER FAST & SUPER FAIR AS ALWAYS

Default Where?

Where did you see the announcement that they would be shipping out the part? How are we supposed to contact them to get it? (e-mail address or call?)
