The T-Bone chassis brace & front bumper is very large. Which is good for impacts but I was wondering how the car reacts aerodynamically at higher speeds (50+ mph)?
the speed calculators say i am at 63 mph
i run a tbone, full skid and bumpers
dont have an issue with it.... i dont think it does anything bad to the aerodynamics... it actually isn't too heavy, and the weight it does add, is down low, helping keep it planted.....
now my bug body... haha, that thing is like a parachute
i haven't had any proper issues with it. but theoretically, wouldn't it help air scoop underneith the vehicle?
Don't forget it does have holes it, which air can pass through
t-bone is the best insurance you can have on the mini, and it doesn't affect the handling of the car.
I'm tempted to go for bumpers alone to save weight and slightly improve clearance when running on grass. But having that full length plate looks like it could improve chassis strength significantly, and maybe prevent broken bulkheads, etc.
I'd like to get it, but I don't think it will work with my wheelie bar.
I have the whole set up and I wish I would have bought it from the get, it would have saved so many parts, I also believe if you run the whole 3 piece set up it would help from busting bulkheads and the chassis since all 3 pieces are connected.
i just hit a curb at 70km'ish
flew 2m in the air and quite a nice aerobatic menuever too lol
no serious damage, just a broken tie rod end... and a wolverine style graze on my tbone front bumper
it'll definitely save you, get the whole set. great insurance
