Anyone ever end up using the foam spec chassis for rubber based classes?

Thinking of trying it as a rubber VTA car.

Good for high grip , on carpet, but for VTA...

you'll be wanting more flex so I'd say no, unless you got one for nothing, then go ahead & try it..._

dam..thought i'd never find a T3 thread! lol.. anyway, i'm new here guys and just getting into the r/c car world. Been around some other r/c stuff before, so I know a little about the electronic side but not so much on the setup side.
Anyway, I just bought 2 XRAY chassis. One T2 that's just a rolling chassis and a T3 that does have a motor, esc, and servo on it. So I look forward to learning what I can here, making some friends, and hopefully having a fast ass car a few parts at a time!!!

I just bought an ARTR USVTA spec T3.

Before i put it on the track i was looking for advice on anything I might want to do first such as rebuild the diffs and the shocks.

Is there anything I should be picking up parts wise or do before I take it out for my first practice?

Also for the shock rebuild is there a total kit or should i buy a specific list of stuff to rebuild them with if there isnt?

this is what i dug up so far. and Im leaning towards just getting the oring and shim set and rebuilding with that.

Bumb for this old thread, I just picked one of these up and plan to use it for VTA racing.

Any one have any tips or tricks for the car?

I also plan to rebuild the diff, the shocks. What o-rings should I use to rebuild them? Can i use the o-rings from newer T4's?

I just rebuilt my shocks , the shocks are different from the T4 shocks they are shorter different shaft size ,O rings. I had to order from Amain hobbies. some Spec R parts work like diffs. I use my T3's for GT and VTA on pavement.

Good to know, I see you can still get most of the parts for it. I may have to get creative for somethings. How do you like it for vta? Are you having to add weight to make the minimum?

with my full size servo and 300g battery all I really have to add are balance weights .
I race my T3's outside where they can be competitive. Inside on black carpet it seems a little tougher to be on pace. I dont know any company that makes a aluminium chassis for it.
I race the T3 for VTA and GT outside .I also like to use Front Diffs in place of the spools
It is difficult to find replacement bulkheads, Chassis for the T3. I know many of the arms , castor blocks and hubs can be found fairly easily .

Good luck with the T3

check with "saga customs" or "flmrc" for some custom xray stuff if you really want it..and try the brass weights. they can be very helpful by trying them in different areas on the chassis.

Thank you for the info, I don't plan to be competitive. I'm new to the on road game, I'll be racing indoor carpet. I'll have to ask some of the locals for setup help.

Naw, I think I'll stay away from custom stuff. I'll try pick8ng up some brass weights, and playing around. Off road seems way more forgiving.
