I used the rubber grommets and the plastic spacers etc.

i am in the process of producing 6061 alloy lipo backstops for the T3..
i have just received the first batch tonight which were tested with excellent results..
there were no breakages from a number of cars using them and they also stayed securely in the vehicle

the pic attached (although poor quality from my phone) shows the backstops in their prototype form..
the final product will have a nicer finish
these are expected to sell for around $35-$40 AUD ($30-$35 USD) with mounting hardware included..

pm for details if interested

I personally prefer the Take-Off/RP Ser-Boys. Absolutely love them. You can get them from nexus.

I have posted a link to my setup from Sunday.
Although pretty good, I am lacking what appears to be corner entry to mid corner grip, particularly at the front.

Although my car is quick, I seem to have to to wait longer for the car to change direction and go through the corner before powering out. The fastest car there, an Mi4, just seems to be on rails compared to mine and it appears that the only real difference, apart from the driving, is the steering and corner speed through the corners.

are they the same size as the stock plastic adapters? if so do you think you could make them longer so there would be more 'coverage' on the inner part of the battery. this should help spread the load on battery cases when some big shunts occur.

I would try going to 450 oil in the front to get it to react faster. Also try raising the front outer link by 1mm.

If you want more overall steering, run the lower (-.75) roll center blocks on the front.

How much droop are you running above ride height? I don't measure off of the droop gauge.

these prototypes are the exact same size as the stock plastic parts..

there will be a couple changes to the next batch..
- screw holes will be centralised (they are currently offset like the plastic parts are)
- the short side will be made longer (each side will be the same length)

You could try moving your ackerman forward a notch or two, lighter rear shock oil, or a little more rear droop. Any of these 3 things should help you achieve more front grip on corner entry. I feel like moving the ackerman forward gives more steering throughout the entire corner although it is supposed to be most effective on entry. The lighter shock oil should allow weight to transfer forward quicker and also allow the rear to roll a little more which should help the car rotate in the center and usually helps the car rotate in the sweeper too. More rear droop will just allow more weight transfer to the front when you lift and start your corner. I'm not sure how much uptravel you're running over ride height, but a half mm to a mm could be the difference you're looking for.

when you guys say longer ackerman, you mean all five clicks out right? or are you moving the black disks that go in the top deck and chassis?

I love those ser-boy servo adapters as well! you dont need grommets unless you are running nitro

skiddings :- for more entry steering the ackerman will have the biggest effect , your set up doesnt show which way the pips are for the ackermann ?
also as i used the standard roll center cams (009) for the camber links will help as the link is shorter which will speed up reaction and also you will be able to power up from the corner earlier . other changes i would do is use a 1.2mm rear roll bar on the outer hole and maybe drop your shock positions on the front 1 hole .
