to keep the car from rolling i'd suggest using the low (-.75) roll center front arm mounts, along w/ adding 0.75 mm spaces to shim the arm out to 2.25mm from the front bulkhead. this will put the car at the maximum legal 190mm width.
Here is my current setup. Its a good starting point for any HIGH grip carpet track. http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...=1174&setup=t3

I have a few setting like Drew did but not much.

That sucks...I dont see how people are having problems. We have a couple at our track and seen a few bad blowouts and they keep running. I ran mine for 4 weeks without a problem and this weekend put in the 1 piece and everything is still good. The one thing i made sure of was that the screws were always tight. After 2-3 runs i always cranked on them.

Default Anyone running foam?

I have to ask, as I only see one foam setup on the xray website and in the area we still run foam and not rubber.

2010 US spec that is very ill handling. Car is running the kit setup, and cannot get the car to have the 12 scale like handling I am used to. My T2 2008 was perfect on the kit setup but, this one is not even close on the kit setup. The car pushs then hooks, both directions sometimes traction rolling. I have tried thicker oil, increased toe, decreased droop in the front, Decreased toe in the on the back. Running double pink jaco all around at 56 mm with a standard neutral Stratus Body. Checked to make sure nothing is bent or dragging in the suspension. The general the car doesnt respond, feels very dead and tippy when on track, reguardless of traction.

Since I dont really get a chance to practice much, I am looking for some suggestions on what to try next as I am at a loss.

Thanks,

I agree there is not much online for T3 foam set-up but I found that the kit set-up is a good start. Not sure how you got it to push? Out of the box it steered like nothing I ever drove before. If your track has high traction you will want to install the front sway bar first thing otherwise the car has way too much steering. This will get the car close but when a good groove builds in the track the car will start to get really tight again and will want to roll/tip on quick change backs. Try putting a 1mm shim between the front wheel hex and the rim, then move the front RC to +.75. This should make the car very competitive. This car has been by far the best thing I have driven and as more people share set-ups the cars will only get better.
I am running dbl pinks as well but a R9-F and the original 2 piece front suspension holder. (not the re-designed 1 piece)

I am not sure what to get the t2 009 or t3 most of the guys that went from the 009 to the t3 are doing worst when using rubber on carpet are most of you t3 guys seeing the same result? I know the t3 should be a step up but what I can see on my local track the 009 is still king on carpet using rubber.

I know my T3 was better on the first battery than my 009 I ran in Vegas (and it was very good there!!). I have been nothing but happy with mine and have heard the same from everyone I know that has a T3. Especially in rubber tire!

What??? The T3 carries more speed in the corners (out of the box) than any other TC I've driven including T2,007,008,009.

We are also using the older quick roll centers in the rear to shorten the link some for high grip. The L1 L2 feels easy to drive but won't let the rear free up when traction is high, this makes the car feel like it wants to push.

Anyway, after making some of these changes it's really feeling good on high grip surfaces. We are all still new to it on US smaller high grip technical tracks so we're still learning. It is more capable then the T3 once figured out.
okay. I stand in the election of a replacement car to drive with my left Schumacher mi3.5 or switch to mi4 .. But I feel it has run since sst99 Schumacher came on I am going nowhere with their cars longer .. I need to be developed .. Xray is then my choice when I have an old racing friend who is still very active and runs just Xray at the top of Europe! he developed many years ago when he was switching from Schumacher to Xray .. on it was good for him .. so now it's my turn

Soo what are most of the best value for money T3 or 009?
