The track was, well, let's just say, a little bumpy.

Raise the rideheight? Any higher and I'll need 808 shocks and towers.

Most of the Xray drivers I know, use 2000cst in the rear.

Just raced my first meet with the t3 2011, had the servo turned 90 degrees as per Clint Livingston AKA PIMP setup. As everyone has said, the car is overall much easier to drive with the same overall grip level. I put it down to the car having a more even steering spread due to the wider EPA on the servo.
I have a tendancy for big movements with the steering wheel so having to be less fidgety and precise with the wheel made it easier to pull off consistant lap times.
I was racing the T3R previously and everyone i race with who was marshalling all said how much smoother the t3 2011 looked compared to the old T3R.
Laptimes werent significantly faster, maybe .3 sec at best but overall consistancy went from P.B. of 1 sec down to .5 which is big.

I am also running gear diff front and rear, huge difference and makes the car much easier to drive, my 2cents worth if u are looking to get a more consistant car overall. Our track has heaps of 180 degree corners which makes it unusual though

Hi,
Just received my x ray gear diffs. Was thinking of running 1000cst in the rear but a bit unsure about the front gear diff. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Racing on carpet.

Anyone else ever have issues with the T3R servo saver popping out after a big hit due to chassis flex? Did I miss something in the build?

I also had this problem.
Place an aluminum top deck mount (30 6515-K) behind the servo to prevent this in the future

Ideally cleaning gum in front, as much as you can get in, if not 500000 cat oil. In rear, around 1000 should be ok as a starting point, I'm using 70wt shock oil in mine.

Ps until recently, no one run gear diffs in the front of there cars over here, a couple of weeks after people have seen mine you can't spot a spool anywhere!
