I just wanted to let everyone know that the new Scaleauto SC-8003 GT3 chassis uses Torx nuts and not hex. It appears that it’s using a mix of T5 and T6 nuts. I’m getting a Wiha Torx driver set tonight to get everything apart so I can be aware of every bolt on the car.
I’ll keep this up to date on changes and things I find.

So I got into the car late last night. The carbon fiber mounting plate is thicker than the metal plate on the older cars, so it has less float. I’m not sure what that’s going to mean on the track right now so I’m not suggesting it’s either good or bad. I spent a good amount of time trying to straighten the body on the chassis as the Z4 I got was crooked and offset. Everything else looks to be the same so I’ll get to the track and true the stock tires and see how it runs.May 25, 2018 at 6:08 PM #12302
