As far as the old school chasis goes what are the major differences?? Are the mounting locaions the same for the bulkheads. Is the old chasis just more stiff (rigid) thanks

Pretty much it is more stiff..battereis are mounted more forward if I remember correctly... that is why we like them for Carpet Racing. When the Newer 6 cell chassis came out we knew they were going to dicontinue the old one so we got as many as we could. The battery placement is different on the old one then it is one the Newer Chassis but only by about 2mm and that is because they put 6 slots on each side.

Even more turn I guess... it also balances the car a bit more since there is a lot of weight in the back half of the car so front to back balance is better. It also gives you more room to mess with the motor wires .

Eye candy? I'm still using the plastic ones. I once ran into the boards hard and practically ripped the front left side off. The front hinge pin mount popped the e-clip pulled out of the bulkhead. The end was still usable so I popped it back in and put on a new e-clip. If I had the aluminum ones, I'm pretty sure it would have held but I'd have two broken arms.

I ran the type S at socal raceway today. I must admit I did turn some heads with it. You are right, the car is super stable allowing me to corner on rails. I also ran a 23T in the car and the speed added to the effect. I wonder how it will drive with a mod motor in it. Sometimes I feel I want to drive another body besides the stratus or alfa.

Here is the blerb from the Xray site:

Xray site:
For steering setting and fine tuning

High-quality CNC machined aluminum arm holders are a great add-on for your T1 to help you fine tune your steering. Exchange the standard nylon holder for these alu holders and adjust the steering very precisely - exactly how you will need and require. These eccentric holders will greatly help you to tune and improve the steering characteristic.

The alu eccentric holders have two holes for placing them in two positions. The first position is the standard position as the original nylon holders in the kits, with hole for the pins in the centerline. When you rotate the holder by 90 you will achieve the second position; here the hole is 1.5 mm off center, which creates the possibility to have multiple positions of the front upper arm.
Looking at the picture, it looks like you get to play with more settings.
