I have gone to 1mm shims all around on the hubs. Front sway bar is now a 1.3 Everything else is as per kit set up. As i said the car is fast and i dont wanna compromise its performance by changing alot just to gain rear end traction. is there anything i can do to get somemore rear end traction?

Thanks heaps Guys

Thanks for everyones replies on the previous page regarding loctite, cvd's, etc. I will strip the car down on the weekend and start again using some of your tips.

Top - $3.00 for 8. The Xray ones seem to be a bargain at $3.60 for 2!

A harder spring will help with on power, may not with entering a corner but give a go. Most people on asphalt run the same spring fr anf rr or 1 rate difference, so give it a shot.

My local racetrack is pretty high grip but when I go out to race on low traction asphalt there are a few things I do to gain rear traction. For the T3 you can try running 2.5 mil spacers on the rear hubs and lowering the inner rear camber links. You can also bring in your rear shocks all the way in. Also for low traction you can go with more droop in the rear. 5 droop up front and 4 in the rear. Last thing I do is lighten the rear springs. Try 2.4 in the rear and 2.8 in the front. Hope this helps...

When I changed to the Exotec chassis, the car was loose on power exiting turns with my usual 2.4 rear springs so I then went to 2.6 on the rear and problem solved. So I would suggest in some instances, firm up the rear if you are having trouble putting power down IF you already have softish springs on. If you need more grip in the middle of the corner then its a good idea to lay the shocks down. My 2c

Try the 1 hole rear uprights if you're not running them
already. They make the rear end alot more stable at both highspeed and lowspeed corners. I won't be switching back to the standard rear upright anytime soon.

Also try standing the rear shock up one hole upto no.4. If you're struggling putting power down this helps alot. Make sure you have a perfect rear diff aswell as this may be your problem if you're struggling on and off power with rear traction.

Thank you
The H parts are more durable and flex less which makes them more consistent IMO. It's all personal preference and someone else might like the feel of the M parts and their flex characteristics. A lot of guys in my area ditched the M parts quickly for the H.
