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.
Come see if you are you going to be at WC tomorrow or Saturday.

Less ackerman shims make the car more agressive mid corner.

Raising the rear RC should work but I'd just try a harder rear bar to start with. I've also found the shorter rear link gives better mid-corner steering.

Hi, Need a little help. Which ecs drive shafts to get 50 or 52mm to run with 304900 gear diffs?
Also does it make a difference if i am running different track width at front?
Thanks.

Perhaps try all or some of the following;

Less rear toe
Stand rear shocks up more
Harder rear spring

I'll be there Saturday when they open, thanks again for all the help

Thanks to Craig, hana and Skiddins for the replies too.

I'm trying to find that 0.4s I need to be competitive in the Expert class.

Built my xray geared diff tonight. All went smoothly. Will update tomorrow on How it performs compared to the ball diff.

I had a few questions regarding the new gear diff for the T3-11. First, who is selling it atm? I have tried looking on A Main and sofar they do not have it up.

How does the new gear diff compare to the Multi-Diff? Would the Multi-Diff have any benefits over the new gear diff?

I am using the car for bashing and the occasional race, and am not looking forward to constantly adjusting and rebuilding the ball diff. Also would it be good to get the diffs to replace both front and rear, or is just the front needed only?

Thank you

The spec R gear diff WITH the optional low weight aluminum outdrives ( is about 21 grams ) which is still roughly 5 grams heavier than the Xray T3 gear diff !

The Xray gears and case feel feather light. I'm guessing lots more carbon than plastic.

lol I have the car already, I was just looking for who is actually selling the Xray gear diff, and whether it is worth going with over the Multi-Diff. ty though.

How about chassis plates (properly drilled) for under $100?
