I was looking at the setup you posted. I'm a little confused with the rebound stroke. What is it? How do you measure it?

its another way of measuring droop. i think Mike Rydwell posted a few pages back how this is done.

basically you set your camber. unattach the shocks and sway bars..and using digital calipers you measure from the setting board to the top of the axle. its a more precise way of measuring droop when compared to using droop gauges.

its in the notes section of Rod's set up sheet.

There is a Xenon chassis that is pretty good. I think I heard that Penguin was making one too.

3Racing and penguin ones are by far the best, mostly because the conversion doesn't use the plastic front and rear braces from the bulkheads to the chassis. The 3Racing one is a lot cheaper though, and you will need to adjust your handling on the car a little.

I heard from speedtech guys that the Xenon is being discontinued. Bummer. It looks so sweet. Tamiya should hire him to make a Tamiya chassis. I haven't seen the Penguin one yet but I'll get a 3 Racing one becaue I got hooked up from Hong Kong.

thanx guys!

i think 3racing kit is the best option. its way much cheaper compared to xenon. hows the performance of this kit? any improvement regarding the handling of the car? my ta05 is only box stock. no trf dampers, no swaybars, etc.

vega,

if you get the 3Racing chassis, it comes with a blue alloy, finned motor mount, plus the alloy spacers.
