Even though the body portion of the T2 chassis is the same width and length, once you get past the wide corners it becomes narrower and is about 3+mm shorter in the rear and 4+mm shorter in the front. Therefore all four posts moved towards the middle of the car. I would assume the front posts were moved towards the centerline as part of the design goal to centralize mass along the centerline.

It is important for two reasons. It helps to minimize delamination of the glued together CF plates. It also helps to keep the chassis/deck/bulkhead screws from binding to the CF, resulting in stripped screws.

I also rounded and CA'd the outer edges of my shock towers.

this should also allow more chassis roll.....

Ah I see. So you put it around the edges of the chassis and the shock towers?

my bad, I thought you were talking about the wishbone mounts....not the body posts.....I should read things more slowly....ignore my PM, although trus is completely irrelevant in this case....

The post being centred will reduce body roll by bringing the vertical component of the bodies mass towards the centreline as stated....DOH!


Oh, and I am hearing "end of this week" for US customers......has the T2 cleared customs yet.,.....its killing me knowing my xray is sitting less than a mile from me and its going to take days to get here

I look at DFW airport from my office window!

Yep. Make sure you lightly sand off the sharp parts of the outer edges before applying the CA. Also make sure you wipe off the excess CA from both flat surfaces on the parts. I tend to CA one section at a time, wipe off the excess and then use instant cure/set spray to harden the CA immediately. Then I use motor cleaner to clean off the instant cure and move on to CA'ing the next section.

You're not having any covert operation thoughts are you?

There are two types of Losi CA Glue. Thick and Thin. Which one do you guys recommend for chassis glueing?
