Default T3 2011

Paul, what shock pistons do you use on your t3 2011? Also what weight oil and shock rebound are you using? What about droop for front and rear?




Do you have any other tips or tricks for the t3 2011?

hi paul,

can you tell me a few powerful changes that you would make to the rear so it would stick solid and not step out.cheers

Hi Paul,
I'm a newbie. I own a T3 2010 and it drives very well. Will I benefit by getting a new T3 2011? Will I be a better driver with a 2011?

Here is my suggested starting set up for the 2011 car. I am still working on some things with it BC i have not totally figured it out yet. Thanks

With the 09 car ackermann (notches short), wheel base ( full short front and full long rear) and static camber (up to 3deg rear and down to 1deg front) were the most powerfull things for me.
with the 2011 car the wheelbase definately is still a powerfull adjustment along with the camber, i am still feeling out the new steering to tell how big the difference is with it. also it is pretty normal now to only sauce 3/4ths of the front tire to take some of the edge away at the begining of the run. i noticed Hara and many others doing that in vegas and other races. also i have been running the +75 hexes in the front and that really made the car drive with better feel and consistency.

Thats a hard question, i do feel like the dual bell crank system is the better design and the new shock bladders are better. the chassis and top deck are nice with the optional stand offs also. so the potential is their with the new car. all that said i still hit pleanty of boards though. LOL

Is that 3.5 degree rear toe per side?

Everything else looks pretty close to "normal" setup things I did with my FK'05's, but I never could get a feel I liked running more than 1.5-2 degrees of rear toe per side.

Maybe I'm missing something, what do you gain by running more rear toe?

I always felt like more rear toe made mid-corner steering twitchy, and exit steering nearly non-existent. Running less rear toe always helped rotation, with maybe a touch of over-steer on exit.

Still waiting on my T3'11, so I have lots of time to think and wonder

Jake just got me to try that "don't hit the boards" adjustment in our last race. I have to admit, that one thing alone, does work better than I thought it would.

Default H1 H2 Roll centre question

I have just bought a pair of the H1 H2 roll centres for my T2 009, I have fitted them to the front of my car. I currently run a 1mm shim on top of the front c hubs, Do I need to put a thicker shim on the C hubs or leave as they are ???

Hi, yea you are kinda right on the toe. i feel like the new car does a great job of getting in to the corner and threw the center but needs a little extra help coming off, if you dont like running all that toe i would suggest standing up the rear shocks 1 or 2 holes and running 2 or 2.5deg toe.

Next year i plan on running Thunderpower motors, I race TP batterys now so it only makes sence for me to help them with the motors.

Thanks.

Always more than one way to skin a cat, thanks for the feedback.

Hi Paul,

Do you have any setups for T3 EU Rubber on Asphalt (Hot climate areas like Thailand) ? How would you change the setup as the track temperature rises and falls?
