Hello from France,

the XRay gear diferential is great.
The gears are made from a good nylon, the axles cross too.
The outdrives are made from treated aluminium.
The sealing is operated with flat-paper seal and an O-Ring.



Here's some weight about the T3 transmission...

The spool:



The ball dif:



The SpecR gear dif:



The XRay gear dif:



Front and rear difs in my car.





Au revoir.

Lighter than a ball-diff. That is impressive. And with the additional O-ring, it should be leak-less. Any experiences with the diff so far?

I really am jealous - I wish we had those for the 417's!

Romauld31,

I am new to the T3 '11.

I notice you are only using one quick roll centre adjuster at the front and rear of your chassis. Is this a common set-up or something specific for your track?

Its just the angle that the pictures are taken that makes them look different. Both are the quick roll center adjusters...

Thank you. Now that you have pointed that out I can see it.

I think my excuse is that I had a birthday on the weekend so my eyes are a year older

Hello from France,

yes, it's with the same grease in the XRay or SpecR dif.

Filled with FG grease (around 400.000 cps).

10 grams lighter!!!!

Au revoir.

Do you have any idea how much lighter the spec-r is with their aluminum outdrives?

Probably about the same as the Xray gear diff, as far as I can see the outdrives are the only real difference with regard to weight of the diffs

Hi,

I made a chart of what gear ratios will actually fit when using 64dp. Don't know if there's one already on the net ? I know skiddins has done a 48dp. All Yellow one's will fit, Red I havent tried as I don't have the pinion or spur. I hope all the ratios are right :P let me know if any are wrong.

Hello~

I need to work on getting my car to rotate more on corner entry and exit with a bit more on power steering. With Solaris Hard spec tires my car rotates OK, but I raced with the Solaris SP40 and the rear end seems to be more stuck, same track same setup as posted below.

I attached my setup sheet...I was thinking a 0.3mm or 0.5mm spacer under the rear suspension blocks or using the inside hole on the clamps to make a longer camber link in the rear.

For the T3 2011, which way do Ackermann spacers work? Less shims = more rotation? I'm running 1mm Ackerman spacers.
