Most of the US team run the kit shocks. Although lap times are the same using either, the aluminum shocks tend to generate a tiny bit more traction.

EDIT: Just read Korey's post, so ya what he said

(2) X 308306-O is what you want. The piston, shock shaft are different than what is included with the kit shocks.

As far as I am aware, it changes nothing in terms of car characteristics, just gives you a bit more space for electronics.

The measurement refers to the width of the blade. The kit diff uses the wider ones

If you have a T3 or 008/009, use 305241. 007 and earlier kits used 305240.

There really isn't a need to give pros and cons the best thing you can do is to go to your local tracks and see which car is popular

i'd say - 'get a T3 '11, kick the guys' asses at the track and make your kit the popular one'

kidding aside, u really can't go wrong either way... choose the car with more support at your track.... parts and set-up

Definitely T3

Both cars are very similar on pace but the T3 is much stronger and wears much better (except the belts). I had tamiyas for years, but now love my xray
