Xray releases a new touring car every year. It is usually announced around October, give or take a month.

I was wondering about the rear front suspension holder that some have mentioned to deal with the unequal rear toe issue on the T3'12.

I hear it reduces rear grip...

Has anyone tried it and had sucess in getting that rear grip back?
Does removing the screws closer to the spur gear on the rear end of the top deck negate the loss of rear grip?

I put the one piece block on my car and didn't notice any difference in the rear grip.

Can't tell for sure but look like reflex racing new battery mounts.

I know Paul L was running some experimental parts at the Worlds Warm Up. I'm sure we will see pictures surface after or around the Worlds or possibly the Nationals at the latest or atleast some sort of verbage on it.

So I got around to installing the one piece and still have a 1 degree rear toe discrepancy.
I removed the washers and see that I have exactly 1 deg on the right and 0 deg on the left.
I loosened the screws on the bottom then rescrewed, same problem.

What can be the issue?

You can read some discussion on this issue a few pages back... Posts #2409-#2435.. it may offer some solutions... Also.. the difference between the one piece mount vs the 2 piece mount is more to do with chassis flex and can contribute to or diminish rear traction a small amount depending on other factors in your setup; more of a tuning option instead of one better than the other... IMO, try to avoid removing screws in the top deck as it seems to make the car abit less consistent... Hope it helps..

Switch the hubs from side to side and re-measure the toe. Does it change?

Check for bent hinge pins.

64p pinion gear to fit T3. Having a hard time finding a 46t and 48t 64p pinion in stock by PRS so i tried a Team epic. The Team epic is a little wider than the PRS's and its extremely close to top deck and belt. Not a big fan robinson racing pinions, does anybody have a suggestion. Haven't tried xray's so i'm not sure if they are worth $15 dollars or so.
thanks for any suggestion
