Here is my T3 2012 setup that qualified 5th at the last weekend's Cleveland indoor champs:
This is pretty much my stock set-up. Traction was pretty good in Cleveland but not super high.
Sorry for things being in no particular order.
Final Drive = 3.42
Rear gear dif, 1000 cst
med hing pin holders front and rear
2 MM spacers on front hinge pints
4 deg caster
arm spacing full long in rear, 1 mm from full long in front,
+ 0.75mm hexes on the front, standard in rear
standard 52 mm shafts on the front (no ecs)
5mm ride height, droop = 2mm over ride height front and rear
1mm ackerman shim
1mm bump steer shim
medium location for inner links front and rear (as bite comes up move to shortest location as preferred)
4mm shims on outer ballstud in rear, inner hole on rear hub.
1mm shim on outer ballstud in front
Rear Shock: 275 or 350 cst oil w/ 2.4 springs, 25% rebound, top position layed all the way down
Front Shock: 350 or 400 cst oil w/ 2.8 or 2.6 springs depends on feel, 25% rebound, top position middle hole or 1 lower.
1 deg camber in front
1.5 deg camber in rear
1 deg toe out in front
3 deg rear toe
In my possibly uninformed opinion, the protoform body works best.
I was playing around with the shock oil all weekend, pick your flavor. I had the suspension pretty soft. The car is pretty darn fast
And before anyone comments on running a T3 2012 in vta, its what I had. Total costs to convert were tires, body, and a 25.5 stator.
Another racer was nice enough to take a picture of my car (Thanks!):
