I need some advice. The xray t3 12 is new to me and for your rear tierod inner link, I run asphalt and carpet, and I've seen setups with it in all 3 holes. Mainly medium length for carpet and short outer hole for asphalt. But I've seen this reversed. Anyone play with these and know what works better for each?

Well what I'm noticing is the more available traction the longer link u end up running as a quick set up change . I try to run the shortest I can without traction roling the car on carpet

Ok I greatly appreciate it. So start short, and if I traction role lengthen it. Same go for front camber link?

The one you can get for the '12 isn't really worth it. The new one on the T4 is great. But it won't work with the 12. Just stick with the original setup.

I've been struggling with my T3/12's since last November. Consistent rear grip has always been an issue. I've never been able to get the car to steer well without losing rear grip. Ive always been able to find " the magic setup" in my cars but this chassis is kicking my butt! What am I missing here?

No, I read Hagberg's blog he mentioned that his mod it makes the car harder to drive...makes sense, narrowing the rear track width.

Can anyone help regarding the CSO Aluminium suspension mounts?

I have a set but I wanted to know what size shims to install under them to get to the kit middle hole plastic holders?

Might be harder to drive for some since there is an increase in steering.

It's worth 20 minutes of grinding down the pieces to try plus it's a cheap "hop-up".
