Hi Skiddins,

so in order of 'stiffness' the H's would be the softest and the Graphits the hardest?

I'm asking because I have fitted the 'G' arms to my car for a major meeting this weekend but its going to be colder than I expected and I'm considerting going back to the 'H' arms.

The surface is low/med tarmac.

thanks

Mark

Yes, the graphite ones would be the hardest

Yes.

I put the graphite arms on last month, I have raced on carpet and asphalt since and have gotten used to them. If grip is that low I would certainly consider going back to standard wishbones.

They appear a lot stronger than other manufactures wishbones so I would be less worried about them failing due to the cold.

Hey guys I have a xray t3 10 with the exotek lipo chassis and was wondering what it takes to up grade the steering to the 11 or 12 style or if its even worth doing? The only upgrade it has other than the chassis is the ecs front drive shafts. Any upgrades or hopups I should do?

Any chance T3'12s will drop in price now that the T4 is coming?

My bad, nexus has the t4 cheaper than the t3 on amain. That's the best price I've seen.

FYI, for all you guys that are planning on sticking with your T3/12's. The Smokem T3MX chassis is really worth a try if you're looking for more steering without sacrificing rear grip. I've been running mine on carpet now for a couple of weeks and it's working well.
The original T3/12 is very smooth but with the Smokem chassis I'm also getting tons of steering with out being too tail happy. I'm still working on an ideal setup for the additional flex but, it's got great potential, IMO.

You would need to mount the servo the other way around. buy the twin steering posts etc get a new servo link.

It's up to you as to whether or not you think it's worth it.

Look at the exploded diagramms of the T3 and the T3'11 etc on the Xray website to see the parts you would need.

I did it by tapping a hole in my steering arms. Worked perfectly.

The stock DCJ pushes? Have anyone consider using other brands? Tamiya?
