Yup, I watched all the Xray guys use them at nats to build their cars. Sent Art an e-mail, got to add one to my tool box.

Bobby is absolutely right. The Tweak Plate is a must have in everyones pits and it gets the job done. Throw away your mip tweak stations and get your Tweak plate TODAY!!

Thanks for the love fellas!! You still will need your bubble tweak station to balance sprung weight. This thing just squares everything up on the car.
Seems to be working well for everyone. Glad to hear it. Thanks for all the support guys.

Hey guys. The plates are 99.99 plus 8.10 S&H inside the U.S. I will ship anywhere, I just need to adjust the Shipping accordingly. I will have a website up this week and will post when it is up so I can handle this stuff off of this forum. I don't want to step on any toes. I am taking Paypal prepay orders now and the plates should be ready to ship in two weeks. Thanks for the support guys.

I am definately going to do these for other cars. I am going to do a poll on my website to see what car would be the next most popular to make a plate for. Right now, my boy Jason (BMI) is extremely busy filling orders for the T2 plates and I am busy trying to get through the patent process. Once things calm down a little, I am going to move on the next project. Tamiya is definatly on the short list though.

Default IRP Tweak Plate

Let me just add my support for this product. If you want to get serious about setting up your car the right way every time, the tweak plate is the solution. Alex Lopez and I were using it this weekend at the Strickland race. This thing is no joke...like EA said, all the paid Xray drivers use it. Having one is a no-brainer and don't sweat the cost. Believe me, once you use it and see how consistent your car becomes you won't think anything of it.

And for those who want to say, "my car doesn't need a tweak plate"...you have no idea. Every car needs one of these. Nice engineering Art!

I would like to add my support also... used mine the first time at Scotty's Rubber Tire Nationals... works great. I just screw the car to the plate after my race and do all my work with it attached... I then loosen and retighten the top deck screws before I remove it from the plate and I know everything is square and untweaked

this is an odd product to have, when all the factory guys say the car doesn't tweak. this product can't be good advertising for xray.

This product just makes it easy to tighten everything up and you dont have to worry about a pit board or table being flat.. this plate will hold the chassis flat no matter what.

Ouch dude!! I knew it was only a matter of time before a comment like this came up. I guess if you look hard enough, you can find a negative side to anything.

It's not like the rest of us were not thinking the same thing. A $400 you have to buy a tweak plate to make sure the chassis is straight This is why I also have an RDX as well as my T2
