i assumed, due to the ingenious name, that it was used to de-tweak a car. if it is intended to enhance the buildup of the car, then great, it's a new product that is an advancement in car building.

i never implied that the product does not work, or is unnecessary. what i stated is that the product appeared to address an issue that the factory is claiming is not there. that's all. i'm not hating, i just called out an inconsistency in logic, considering my initial idea of it's intended use.

bobby, what if i told you my chassis has never tweaked?

Here is my problem with the tweak/torque plate: 5-6 months and we will see the new xray (T2-EVO2 ) and probably the plate wont fit I would pay something like maybe 30 bucks for a tool I have to throw away yearly. I know it is not possible to make this one for 30, I speak in general - like I don't mind paying 25-30 bucks for a stupid wrench if it will serve me for 3-4 years (like my Hudy tools) but 100+ for something good for 5 months... that being said I WANT ONE since the day I've seen the first pictures

Alex,

I meant that the Front SERPENT shocks are shorter by 5mm than the Rear SERPENT shocks. The front ones are 68mm and the rear ones are 73mm (same size as FK05 shocks have fully extended).

I tried the 73mm Rear SERPENT shocks on my T2 and they don't fit. However since the Front SERPENT shocks are shorter those MAY fit. I don't know and I won't test it ($100 for two pair...)

Sorry for the confusion

I think one other thing you have to remember is that while there are plenty of experienced and highly skilled racers who run the T2, there are 2 (or more) racers for everyone of those guys that is the exact opposite. It takes a lot to learn how to properly prepare your a racecar and its a steep learning curve for many. I'd be willing to bet 90% of tweak related complaints are linked to a droop, camber, ride height, etc. type of problem opposed to a bulkhead problem. Of course what seaball said is "PEOPLE" have this weird way of blowing things out of proportion so they could see this product as a fix for a problem with the car... BUT thats why this thread is helpful because it informs people that, in fact, there are no problems and its just a usefull tool.

I have 2 BMI T2's, and I haven't had a problem with any "tweak" issues, at least not any that weren't the result of my own wrenching and/or driving.

The asphalt chassis are amazing to the eye and just as glamorous passing RDX's on the track. You'll love it. I've had mine out 3 times so far this spring/summer and the car just keeps getting better. I'll find out just how good it is and I am this weekend in Jackson with all the speedy East Coast guys.

I'm a Cleveland fan since I grew up in da' Ohio, which makes it really hard to live here. But the saddest part is, BOTH teams have idiodic players that got hurt on crotch-rockets. All that $ and no common sense.
