I do tend to run soft shocks, 400 oil in alloy shocks with 3x1.1 pistons. But I do it at both ends.

Mine's the car from 2nd, dark bluey purple colour with what looks like a yellow front in the video (10th after the second corner as I rolled it)
+ YouTube Video

The setup for that night, additive was full front and rear, both for around 20 mins, which is what I do from practice onwards all night; http://piez0r.com/Skiddins/Xray%20Setup%20Sheets/Carpet%20Setups/t3'12-Newbury(F)-27-7-12.pdf

My car is a bit aggressive but it doesn't tend to over rotate, I also run some drag brake.

Xray please consider redesigning the center piece of your steering rack? Something with a stair step two pieces design much like your older single post design. That way we can make ackerman changes on the fly and the steering link will be more inline to the servo horn. That's one thing I loved about your past design. Then this will not be a carbon copy of your competitors.

Default Ackerman

If you are having a problem adjusting Ackerman buy the a plus shims you drop them in and go just as easy as the old style and won't break. Every car that I know of that had the adjustable center steering it was a weak point.

The steering design was the worst thing about the t3, that center single peice steering design was horrible, and would cause the steering rack to pop out of the cups in a heavy crash unless you had the center stiffening post in.
If it rears its head again it will need to be substantially re-designed.

Remove the bumper. (Three screws)

From the front of the car you can get your tools into the steering area to remove the ackerman washers.

Default Front

You don't even take the bumper off . Use a 2.0 mm ball end driver loose the ball studs one or two turns drop In the shim or pull one out and tighten .

I have a dilemma. I'm not going to be able to race for the next couple months. Do I sell the car now and hope that the new one comes out around the time or hold on to it. New cars usually come out in Oct? Is that correct?

Like this;


I'm afraid RCKnight, your request will fall on deaf ears. Although quicker to adjust it was not a great design and as mentioned, used to pop out in heavy crashes.
