i think t bars will break as easily on all t bar cars because they are made ofthe same material unless u get an aftermarket spring steel t plate

I run the car as an L car with tubes.. meaning .075" glass Tbar. No side springs.

you will find the thicker chassis is more consistant on carpet, carries a bit more corner speed...

the aluminum is beutiful... period.

the bearings are rediculous.. my car is 4 months old.. and the rear axle still will find the heavy spot on the wheels.

breaking a 1/12th scale car? uh.. nope

its pretty indestructable...

the tforce comes with a graphite tplate and you can use it it's the same thickness as a 065 and works like a 072 as it is also stronger then a 072 as it is graphite. I woulnd't think you would want a 3.2 as it's a little less likely to take a hit like you have taken. I would suggest getting a bottom plate when you buy your car. and yes you should use a toothpick to apply super glue to the edge of your bottom chassis parts. this helps seals the edge and helps to keep it from chipping and fraying. I have 3 tfource cars and I have been racing for 19 years and I still break tplates so you might get a couple of them also.

CA gluing will only help for chipping and flaking of carbon fiber, it will not prevent breaking. any car will break if u hit the right object at the right speed. i have reflex 12 i didnt do the CA gluing thing, i dont hit walls very often and i still have it.

Does anyone put super glue on the edges of the tplate to add strength. Just curious.
