I put my T3 11 together and took it to the track. My car is all stock the car turns good to the right but spins out half way in the turn to the left. I took apart the front end and checked it all it all looked good. I made sure that it turned equally to the right and left but the car still spins out to the left. I heed help.

Don't worry. It's probably a little oversight. It happens. Most t3 2011 I have driven are super dialed.

The xray springs fit but are a touch big for the retainer. It's best to use the xray top and bottom, that lets you use the xray retainer

i have been running on asphalt with a spool in the front, gear diff in the back..

i'm curious to know how many ppl are getting what appears to be 2 times the tyre wear on their front tyres vs the rears with this chassis?

what have ppl done to balance out tyre wear front to back?
(my preference is to not rotate tyres front->back..)

is it a side effect of running the spool?
would a tight ball diff or gear diff be better?

just looking for some options..

-Mark

im running a geardiff in the front with 500.000 cst kyosho oil. and that seems to even out the tirewear.

All cars wear the fronts out slightly faster than the rear. I would def look over your setup. Usually a car that wears out the fronts a lot faster is one that is pushing through the corners.

I agree with chris that a car with some understeer will wear the tyres out extremely quickly. Post you setup so we can have a look and try and diagnose the issue

My fronts always seem to wear alot faster and my car does push, so I like to see some setup's tips to get more even wear and less push.

I like to think of everything in a few different ways. Tire contact and weight transfer. If your not getting enough tire contact the car isn't going to work to the best of its ability no matter how good of a driver you may be. The weight transfer issue is how much weight is being "thrown" to the front of the car and how fast is that weight going there. If it goes too fast and stays too long, the car will push and possibly throw the rear of the car around. If it doesn't transfer enough, the car also will have a hard time turning.

Keeping that in mind, there is also a difference between steering and rotation.
