Check the spool output cups for wear, also that your driveshafts are not binding on full lock. The driveshafts do need greasing at the joint to keep them free. Also check for any wear on the coupling on the driveshaft.

Do I also need to reverse my steering and bump the expo to + 100%?

check tires for glue, make sure you have even steering throw left and right. check shocks for even rebound too.

Good luck; I don't even think he knows where his throttle finger is after spending more time horizontal than a ...well, the word geisha comes to mind.

Yang, I did make some progress with the rebel BTW. Managed to repeat times similar to the CRC. Hurry up and get better.

Your Friend,

Andrew

well if your shore the tires are not overheating then i would say its your Tyre preparation (ie) sauce your using or if your running a gear diff during the day the oil will thin out giving a difference feel to your handling at the end of the race.Just a couple of things to check for.cheers

does anyone have a low grip asphalt (small technical track and bumpy) setup they can share. the standard T3 2011 setup - works great on a bigger track (medium grip & bumpy) but on this small track i am getting more push on throttle.
thanks.

Default servo mount

hi guys thought i would put up a post with pics of my servo turned. a little different from Alex Hagberg's but this way you can use all standed steering parts apart from a 26mm turnbuckle will need to be brought.The servo can be mounted with double sided tape or if would like piece of mind it will not move then you will have to drill a 3mm hole in the bottom deck to support the standed servo mounting post and will also need to count sink the hole as well.
p.s and the room to mount the electronic after the servo turn is sweet:-)

I did the servo mod myself to test out this past weekend and here are my thoughts:

Overall, the car seemed easier to drive...easier to find the entry to corners...easier to control the car coming out of corners and durring correction.

I don't think that you'll see an outright change ultimate fastest lap... but for me it seemed easier to pull off those faster laps with a more comfortable driving car and more consistantly.

The T3'11 seems to have more steering. This means you can setup the car up for better balance and still have more than enough steering available.

I don't have any specific figures for lap times etc, but haven't yet come across anyone who doesn't think it's better. Which wasn't what i found when we first went from the 009 to the T3.
