1 of my m3 screws for the shock mounts had a dodgy start to the thread as well, I have loads of these so not a worry.

Im a bit dissapointed so far with these couple of items..

Have you guys had any issues like this or have I just been really unlucky.
I didn't have any problems with mine. I had a few glitches with my 2011 but none this year with the 2012.

Ran the car for the 1st time at a small trophy race this weekend. In my opinion the car transitions very smooth. I started with my base 11 set up and found myself working to get more steering into it... it's just planted!

Small differences made a huge difference.

One hole in one drive axle was to small. Had to press the pin through it several times to have the a moving CVD.

I finished the M2.5x6 screw when disassembling the gear diff. Material too soft. Replaced it by 10.9 steel screws which should last for eternity.

The local hobby stores don't cater to on-road racing. I would be shocked to see any of them with a new xray in stock. At best you might find one with a TC6.

Just order one from Canwest RC canwestrcshop.net or from another online shop.

Lou's Speedway in Dorchester (near London) stocks xray parts and he was getting a few t3'12 kits in, but I think they were all spoken for.

The only LHS that stocks a good amount on-road racing related items is muchhobby in richmond hill, but they don't stock xray.

I went from Tamiya to Xray and I'll never go back. The Xray setup window is much larger and the Xray parts quality is miles ahead of Tamiya. The T3 is so far from the T1 that you cannot even consider comparing the two.

If you want to run a ball diff they sell it, part number 305003:

And the battery strap kit, part number 306163-K:

Anyone know if the ECS driveshafts fit the 2012? Nexxus Racings site says they are only compatable with the T2.

Thanks in advance

Did they change a lot on the 2012 version? I'm thinking of buying a second hand 2011 version because a lot more cheaper for me. The 2011 T3 that I'd like to buy has a spec R gear diff in it btw.

Any mods need to be done? And are they worth it?
