see if this fixes my front end push (understeer)
What body are you running? To get my T3 to steer like I wanted it running a LTCR was the best thing I did. The car doesnt get all upset with the body like past cars did in mod. It works really well with aggressive bodies, and gets rid of that initial/mid corner push

Anything with black wheels is bitchen.

id suggest going heavier still on your front oil. i looked at the setup you posted on March 17th. I would suggest going to the +0.75 hinge pin holders on the front of your car. When I made that change during the end of indoor carpet season my car started to come alive - reacting very quickly to direction change and completing corners like it has never before. I had my first outing on asphalt with the T3 last weekend -- and i took my same setup and once i put softer springs on the car was actually pretty good.

the setup also shows you running a rear sway bar -- have you tried the car w/o it?

I would try shortening the front upper camber link. It will make the car react faster and provide a bit of camber gain for mid-corner steering.

I run both camber links short and high on my T3 for rubber/asphalt. Wakes the car up and allows me to run more droop and softer springs. Our track in very fast with medium bite, if a bit dusty.

Use position #4 on the quick roll center adjusters. I think the car transitions faster and has more grip mid-corner because of the extra camber gain.

I will be running this track next weekend (CRO - Sintra, Portugal) for the 1st round of Portuguese National Champs.

I have a T3, LRP SXX TC and X12 6.5T Motor.
I´m new to TC racing.

Any ideias for a base setup ? gearing ? tyres ?

Thanks for any help.

It will be extremely loose under normal conditions. If your track has stupid high traction it might be ok, but otherwise it'll be loose. We've already tried it and tried numerous options to counter the looseness, but no avail.

If you do happen to make it work, let us know how you did it.

On the flip side, using 2.5 inner / 1 outer for 3.5 total will really help on a loose track or with big power

i thought the +75 hinge pin holders removed grip ??

i will go harder on the oil all round see if this helps , also going to try softer springs

i am maybe thinking that is is just me wanting too much through that corner

What body are you running? And are you running the chassis posts?

The +75 holders can sometimes reduce grip but should increase the steering reaction time.

Try narrowing the front track at the wishbones to 1.15mm shims
