But you $$$ for it.
weidjd,
After a post is over about 2 years old, it's best to leave it alone. That post was from August of 2001?

I am just restating something that was said to me so you know how that goes-but the person said no 4mm chassis.

So I guess they werent running exactly what they are going to sell in the Factory kit. But think of it this way-that chassis alone might skyrocket the price of the factory kit to unreachable territory.

I was just curious if they are going to make it at all even as an aftermarket part..that's all

Why would the chassis skyrocket the price when the graphite sheets are only a few dollars more? My thoughts are all the other companies that manufacture aftermarket chassis for cars would loose alot of business if Xray came out with the thick chassis as part of the hop-ups for the Factory Xray. If you look at prices like the Tamiya's Evo 3/ TRF 415 or Corally Assassin at $385 or what you would have in a Barracuda and the Xray at $330 (without the thick chassis), I think there is still margin there to keep the price well below $385 to have the thick chassis. Considering if you buy an aftermarket chassis you will have to spend at least an extra $80. Just my .02 cents.

Does anyone know if or when the new chassis will be available seperately? Im deciding Im going to finally get a CF chassis for my t1R . The chassis is so soft that when you pull down on the suspension arms the droop screws just flex the chassis down .

Also, I installed the short arms on my t1r. It changed the toe in on the front. Are the front short arms a little narrower over all when installed compared to the long arms? Do I need to do any shimming or anything?

Do I need to change anything on the rear of the car for the short arms? Thank

I was told the short arms make the car roll less in corners so the car can carry more corner speed. So they will probably only be good in high traction conditions like carpet and not most outdoor racing. I drove my friends car with the short arms and the car was visibly faster in corners, unlike mine which rolled a lot and lost a lot of corner speed. I just got the short arms and cant wait to try them.
