Doing some research on a new TC ..

Are the stock shock bodies on a T3 plastic? or aluminum? If they are plastic, do most people upgrade them?

The T3 comes with the plastic shock bodies. The aluminum ones look nice but I have'nt heard or seen much of a difference handling wise from the plastic to aluminum ones.

They are plastic. I think most people just leave them the way they are. I haven't ever had a problem with the plastic bodies.

Finaly had a chance today to sit down and play with the tweak business. I followed the 2 tweak reports on this page
http://forum.teamxray.com/viewtopic.php?t=2872
Very happy, after putting it on the hudy tweak station, I tweaked the shock spring adjusters a bees dick and all is good.
Now also the chassis is sitting square on the droop gauge blocks.

Default Smallest pinion possible with stock 84T spur

Does anyone know whats the smallest pinion that I can use with the stock 84T 48DP spur? Would like to run a 18T pinion but it seems there wouldn't be enough room to mesh properly.
