I thought the same as you and didnt cut the holes out and i got a rock caught under the rear pulley and it tore up my rear belt if i had the holes cut out the rock would have just fell through and saved my belt....soooo +1 on cutting the holes out.

I use adjustable piston in the plastic shock, after I checked, the shafts sometimes stuck and can not fully fall down, the shaft must be rotated in order to gain a normal length.
Please help. Thx

The adjustable "clickers" are known and prone to that, The only way to fix that is to run standard pistons, you'll usually only change the front anyway between 2 and 3 hole depending on the track

Hi Guys.
this is my first post in this thread and I am looking for a little help. I purhased a t311 with the vbc flex chassis kit which includes the E/W servo mount and I also have the more traditonal rollcenter mounts like the tamiya or serpent.
Anyway I need a begining setup for the car. It will be raced by my 8 year old son, we race outdoor asphalt low traction and very tight.
Thanks
Don

quick question,

2deg vs 3 deg rear toe, if you can keep the car stable with 2deg would the car be faster with 2deg vs 3deg (less drag)? and obviously ill get more steering?

Cheers

They are lighter and stiffer than the standard arms.

I believe 2deg will produce less drag in a straight line and will give better turn in, but it may compromise mid corner steering and stability.
It works better on some tracks than others.

Try it and see which you prefer and which produces better lap times for you.

Thanks, ill give it a go..

Also while browsing some asphalt setups on the xray site i noticed most of the team drivers are running 450-600 shock oil. Im running 350 atm, but if i was to jump up to 450 all round would it just make the car more responsive? The track is very smooth I race on..

We run on a very smooth open track surface and I am running the stock weight the kit comes with up front and 27.5 weight in the rear. Granted this could all change when the temps come up.

I run in 17.5 so its not as violent of a turn in as mod and 13.5 though.
