Default Roll center holder

What is the advantage of the optional quick roll center holders?

Generally makes the camber links a little shorter. For the most part, the L and H holders work better in most conditions though. They make for a longer camber link which makes the car a lot smoother and easier to drive.

Hey guys

Was the first time for me running the new bulkheads this weekend, one thing to note is to make sure you use Xray ball studs otherwise your links will be massively out with HB or tamiya etc.. (around 1.7-2.0mm higher)

I ran the slightly longer link (middle hole) and it was very nice, created much more roll and stability which for the track we tested worked very well.

Also keep an eye out because some ball studs have a flat section at the very top (non Xray I believe) so if they are screwed in fully they can strip out he first threads of the bulkheads and make the stud very tight all the way through.

All in all, great adjustablitly and usual Xray quality.. :-)

Anybody have a spare set (4) of upper bulkhead/shock tower mount pieces?

(reference pic) http://www.nexusracing.com/product_i...oducts_id=1503)

I basically have enough spare parts to build an 008/009 roller but need some oddball parts, so I figured a complete TC would be more useful than a box of randomness. Will probably make it a mod car just for kicks when I'm done. Don't care if they are silver or orange, it's a mutt car anyway!

Luke, which track was that?

Tried Paul Lemeiux's -.75 roll centre holders trick, the car was quick but very difficult to drive, went back to 0.00's with +0.75 at the front and the car was just as fast but easier to drive.

Does appear to have more steering, provided you can tune the setup to maintain the balance it's possible a few tenths faster per lap.

It will never be a huge difference though.

Wait until your chassis needs replacing, then get the T3'11 upgrade kit.

Hey guys, I need a comprehensive list w/part #'s of the necessary items for this car. Plus throw in some 'upgrades' if you want to. Can anyone oblige me?

Had my first race meet with a t3 2011 this week. I played with the settings a bit during the course of the day but progress was limited due to setting up the esc at the same time and having to switch tyres halfway through the day due to temps. Well I got the esc fairly much set up but I'm having major problems with traction. Basically I'm under steering on entry and oversteering on exit. I'm fairly agressive in my driving style. Running 2 degrees front and rear camber, rest is stock. The track is 20x45m and Would be considered to have average traction for an asphalt track.

Any tips on set up or a starting point? I've never really understood improving a car's setup and the setup guide that came with the car has way too many options which I don't understand fully.
