LOL. I'm thinking about coming back, not 100% sure though. Won't be able to make as many big races if I do come back, but just want to have fun with it. I got too serious and got burned out. Have to realise I'm not going to be a top driver. Have to be happy witb being mediocre. Hope to see you if I come back.

I've been off the Xray band wagon for awhile now but I like some of the changes made to this car.

Obviously you've never driven one. In my experience my exotek '12 works well on asphalt. For carpet I prefer my stock '12. When I was in the market to replace my stock chassis from.running on quite a few parking lot tracks I decided to just replace it with exotek version. The other reason I preferred the exotek for asphalt is because it's much faster to change roll centers to match the various surfaces I run on. For carpet the setup is pretty close from track to track so fine tuning is all that is needed.

It looks like the shock towers sit much lower on the bulkheads than the T3. Does that mean the shocks are shorter?

Also, that cantilever servo mount, is that to minimize the servo mount's effect on chassis flex?
