Yes and that was the reason the T3000 and then the T5000 had the bridges on the throat to stiffen them up. Didnt help much as the things were just so powerful - in Europe/Africa the T2000, 3000 and 5000 were sold under the Lacoste brand and in fact the T5000 (and the Lacoste versions) also had the rubber anti vibration damper that was also used in the Equijet series 10 yrs later.
