This definitely exists in blue - so the CMDLINE should be removed - can be done by admin edit.
I think the disc on top of the tow hook should be offset, more like what was done in 4796.dat, but I won't hold just for this.

I don't have this part, I haven't seen, I'm just doing a basic admin review. The position & orientation are good, the name maybe should be 'car base' rather than 'car chassis', but this part has more car-specific details than most 'car base' parts, so I'm leaving it as-is.

Changed title to distinguish between the two parts: this one has a tow-hook, and 3888 does not.

I do not like the current suffix "with Tow-Hook" very much.
All Fabuland Chassis feature that hook to chain them.
Having this in the title suggests that this would be discriminitating element, but it in fact isn't. I suggest that we remove this suffix.

Please make another suggestion, then. We need a way to distinguish between this part and the very similar http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=3888c01.

Maybe we should rename this one 3888a (it's the older version) and the tow-hook-less version 3888b?

Reviewer: anathema

Possibly. Certainly the new 12x6 chassis is listed as part #4362 on BL, and the old part I have here has 4362 moulded onto it, so they should likely be 4362a/b when they're done.

If we do call this one 3888a then x684c02 needs to move to 3888ac01, of course.

Just looked at Bricklink: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=x852c01
There it is mentioned that the number 4326 is seen in the mould. So I think that this file shows 4326!
I request to rename this to 4326.dat and the reference 4326c01.dat.

The other (new) part is listed as 3888c01 (http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=3888c01). So I assume that the new mold without the hook is design id 3888.

I tried to verify against TLC but on the webside I can not find any hint for these parts.

3888, 4326 or 4362 ??

Reviewer: dulcaoin

Comments:
Chris, good question!

This is not 4326 or 4362. Those both have 12 studs in the long direction, and this part has 14. I believe that 4326 is a typo by someone at Bricklink, I'm fairly certain that the Mickey Mouse sets had the part with the design ID embossed.

All the references I have for 3888 have 14 studs, but also don't have an eye or a hook attached. If there was a re-moulded 3888, "a" should be the one without hook or eye.

So I would go with 3888b here. (3888a for the 14-stud without hook and eye).

Whoops, I reversed what I should have said. Philo is right.

This should be 3888a. Without the hook and eye, 3888b (redesigned for sets 4164 and the 2002 LEGOLAND bus set).

At Fri May 18 14:16:36 2012 part 'parts/x684.dat' was renamed to 'parts/3888a.dat'.

Sorry, this part should get a (Needs Work) statement.
There are so many overlapping quads and t-junctions.
And the top sides of the mudguards bleeding through other surfaces.

We need somebody who own one of the both car bodies. I can clearly see the problem you are talking about. But without defining one of both to be correct we can not solve this issue.
