Default Ray,

How does the 350 chassis battery position compare with that of the 1st Gen T1? More forward? a little backward? about the same?

I can still get the same effect (moving weight forward) by locating my lead weights at the servo area right? I'm trying to make the 1530g limit my local track has just started to impose

Default Re: Ray,

I believe the original T1 had the batteries in the same place as the Evo2-only it had a lot less cutouts so it was the stiffest chassis produced by Xray (for the consumer-not team drivers).


So the 350 BMI chassis is definately more weight bias forward. I dont think placing the lead weight forward will be the same. This is because you still have the heaviest weight over the stock saddle position. I do knw some of the Team drivers at the Bird were running the batteries forward and the needed ballast in the front of the car too.

Trust me-the cars got mad steering when you first try it. Then you tune it out a bit with the diffs and other things like rear toe in and rear spring untill its comfortable for you. For me-I actually want even more steering now so last two runs I sauced the front tires out to the orange, put a little toe out in the car, took off the sway bar..... And still its So easy to drive and carries corner speed. Next time car hits track I will have raised the frnt roll center. This will definately add steering. I'll then probably be faced with putting the sway bar back on and make some other changes to compensate.

I am the quintessential sedan whore-I'll buy and drive almost anything, but ths car is awesome!! I am going to run this for a long time I think.

Thumbs up

Ray

Thanks for the reply.

So what is the F/R weight distribution of the 350 BMI like? 50/50?

Those little ball thingies were on XRay's site last week. I'm assuming the rest will be coming?

Oh wait, those are made by Xray? I was under the impression that is was an aftermarket company producing them.
