"The chassis design is focused on weight distribution and high-traction characteristics, with *the new minimum chassis weight rule in mind. *The 2012 world championship regulations state that the minimum chassis weight will be restricted to 1,350g. (1,450g in 2010). "

100g change is pretty considerable. I have no idea if this will happen at the tracks we run, I just found it interesting and was wondering how much and where people are using extra weight. Thanks in advance.
here is my setup. not super clean, but its a race car not a show car

What brands of servo, or individual servos fit the T3'11 inner mounting holes? Would prefer a low-profile as well. I know the Futaba ones fit the outer holes. Looking for options.

I would recommend getting a full sized servo, since many are using it to help balance the car. I would like to use my low profile, but finding a place to mount the transponder can be difficult. I find it best to mount it on end of the servo so it clears the graphite chassis. There's room if you don't mind mounting the receiver on top of the servo. Another resaon to get a full size one.

Only change in swaybars since the T2007 has been the colors have all gone to black with laser etched sizing marks (circa t2008). Which car are you planning on running them on? the T3 2011 comes with swaybars for a starting place.

the car comes with 1.4 mm front bar and 1.2mm rear bar. That's a good starting place. you can get +1/-1 from that by changing the last digit on the part number Front is 302484 (1.4mm), rear is 303482 (1.2mm). I haven't nailed down my setup but last year I liked the 1.4 front bar / 0 rear bar setup that I have on the xray site. In the coming weeks I should be able to nail down a final starting setup for my 2011.

Not sure what you mean. I'm asking which servo's are narrow enough to mount between the inner holes (either full size or low-pro).

It really depends on your RX and ESC combo, if your running a small esc like the Tekin RS Pro, and a small rx like KO, it all fits fine, if your running LRP and say spektrum etc you might have to shuffle things around a bit and stand your rx on its side.
