Forgot to say that the servo link had to be shortened more than the "approximate 47mm" length indicated in the T3 Instruction Manual. Mine is only 42mm with a JR 9000 servo; but, the length can vary somewhat according to the location of the output shaft on the servo.

You should be able to make it a perfect 100% L/R balance by adjusting the servo link.

Pretty much, the only thing I adjust from my radio is steering travel/dual rate. Keeping it simple.

I also have about 80g of lead strapped to my T3 to make 1425g. I would run about 30 near the front servo and 30 behind the lipo. the rest could go under your belt or somewhere near the center.

you will also see that people post information about their weight placement on the online setup sheets - http://forum.teamxray.com

i've been running 10 grams at the Front Left and Front Right of my cars -- using either tire weights or XRay 309840. Behind the battery on the Rear Right I run 15 grams again with either tire weights or XRay 309840. On the Rear Left behind the motor I run a fan (about 5 grams). The remainder of the weight I put in the center line of the chassis using tire weights. Just make sure to offset the weight slightly to the left in order to keep their weights from rubbing against your belts.
