Default Shock bladder sponge insert

What is the effect of running the sponge insert or not running the sponge insert under the bladder?

- Camber: rear 2deg / front 1.5deg

When setting camber (Hudy setup system), I push down in the center of the shock towers, I notice no camber change at the rear and only +0.5deg in the front. If I push down on one side, say rear right side of the shock tower, the rear right would become 1deg camber and the left become 3deg.

I think this is wrong? Since I thought the side being push down should have more camber for more traction? I also have a t2 009, also using #3holes, but the camber change in the 009 is normal.

Anyone, please? Thank you in advance.
Anyone please?

First I would check to make sure there are no bearings binding, or screwed down to tight, on your setup system. Second I would assure their is no other binding or length difference.

I just put my T3 on the setup and tried to simulate what you were saying. I could only duplicate the variance when I either A. Had my one setup triangle with a binded bearing in the rear or B. loosened the screw to much on the setup triangle causing it to move side to side.

So, I would start there.

using the foam increase shock rebound. i've been running "dead" shocks (zero rebound) by not using foam and drilling a small hole into the shock cap in the top behind the bladder.

How many suspensions does one get before they are banned? That's poor Nicks second time... either way, I do love my Ignore list


Back to topic: does anyone know the rolling chassis weight? (no tires/electronics) I am unsuccessful in my search for this answer...

You are going to like it. Last night I raced my T3 for the first time. Wow.

My 009 after an evolution of setup changes has become a great car. The T3 has way more mechanical grip right out of the box so I'm happy I made the jump to it.

btw... I had to tune out a bit of traction due to a traction roll in one of the late qualifiers but the car was very easy to drive and had more corner speed than I was prepared to use

My T3 balanced at 1405, with a standard weight speed 6. Had to add a bunch to make weight for our series. It's nice to know you can get light with the T3 if you need to!

BTW, the car is great, very planted compared to my 009!

any hop up suggestion to make this car a little sturdier. I had problems with steering knuckles and C-hubs on my T2-007, replaced it with all aluminum problems solved. Alum versus plastic? unfair comparison.

the car handles great. feels like it has too much steering but I'd rather have that problem than no steering. tried it for the first time at debbies yesterday, the car is driveable out of the box.
