Hi all, also new to this forum..
I have recently returned to RC. My first xray car was the T1 I drove at the worlds in South Africa, which took preference over the tc3 I had been racing on foam tires. I bought a t3 this year in July as my car to return to the sport (i wish i had known the t3 '11 was coming
), I love the car...
1.) response to camberlink changes is better than I've experienced before
2.) diffs are the best I have come across, and require the least maintenance of all the diffs I see at any level of racing here in SA(South Africa)
3.)ease of balancing the car
4.)diff height adjustment
5.) xray's flex adjustments
6.) new thin membranes for the shocks(although I haven't used them yet, I can see how they would help)
possible changes :
1.) alu shocks in the kit!!
2.) drive pins in the cvd with flat spots (the front ones tend to come out often, although this may be due to the extra load from foam tires?) I have resolved this issue for now with some lock-tight on the grub screw, although i dont believe its a good place for glue to be in the car... High possibility of causing unnecessary binding
3.) possibly bulk head mounted camberlinks, where all changes could be made by shimming the camberlink on either side of it
4.) lipo configuration one-way (although there may be one for the t3'11?)
5.) ecs drive shafts in the kit, perhaps abandon the normal front cvd's all together
6.) transponder mount, perhaps a cutout in the front bumper?
7.)easier balancing of weight front to rear (perhaps just two holes for the hudy balancing pins)
I look forward to further developments (and my t3 '11
) having just returned to racing, and being one of 2 xrays in the modified A-final here, we will be looking at some podiums next year
