I know I have not been posting for a long time now, but just been away from this forum. I have to say, all the picture that I viewed, cool pic. guys. Well update on my cars, I used to own a total of 5 Xray's, 4 T1, and 1 Evo 2, one of my T1 that I kept in the box mint condidtion with the Bonus package, keeping that in the shelf's. I had sold 2 of the T1's away, didn't have room for all these cars in my collections. Among are 5 gas cars, and a plane . My Evo 2 did very well on carpet, had not been on asfault yet, using the T1 on asfault, but I'm planning on converting the T1 to the Evo 2. Well, looking forward on hearing all your experience, and sharing all tips with all ya.

just put some saddle packs together for my xray. are you guys having any problems with the gp3300 fitting into the battery slots? I find that I have to loosen one side of the battery hold down posts to get them in and then screw the post back down. Had not noticed this with the 2400.

Also one I tighten the battery post. the gp3300 seem awful tight in there.

It's a very tight fit. I wouldn't recommend using the battery hold downs, try using strapping tape. If you did use the battery hold downs you will find that the chasis will flex and bow producing a tweak.

You could also take a dremel to the edges. File the edges of the battery cutouts at a 45-degree angle but be sure not to sand so much that the batteries sit below the bottom of the chassis.

What I did to my chassis, is that I use a file and file the chassis at 45 degree angle, after filing the chassis, put some CA glue the edges. I also file down the post a little too, and now I have no problems with my packs. Hope that help.

Here's another tip for most of ya still using the stock upper bumper mount. I use the Team Associate chassis protector to reinforce the plate on both side of the plate, and use a x-acto blade to put the hole in the mounting holes, and for the bumper post, I left the other area alone to make it more stronger, and plus you can put your personal transponder on it. So far it's stronger for me. Hope that help ya.

I just noticed that the new kit comes with a small rear bumper protector and a transponder mount.
have you got a pic of this rear bumper and transponder mount?
