Heres my Setup thats on the car right now:
http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...6&setup=t2_007


Only Ideas i have from looking at others setups is move the shocks in rear down 1 if not 2 holes and bump the front oil upto 700 and the rear upto 500. To make the car a little less twitchy as i can see alot of roll in the car when turning.

First thing I would do is check to see if you have to much drag brake on the car, that will cause min corner off throttle oversteer for sure. usually when i ran that car oversteer off power wasn't a problem. I would also go to 450 front oil(unless your trying really hard to make the car unresponsive), and if it continues to be to twitchy for you maybe remove or run a softer rear bar. You may also have to much rear camber given it's low grip. Play around with 1-1.5 degrees front camber and 1.5-2.0 degrees rear. You could also try the middle hole uprights for the rear. Also make sure when the car does get upset make sure it's not bottoming and upsetting the car.

Hope this helps.

Ok thanks im running 15% drag brake right now. Also the car is very responsive with the 600 front oil i have no problem with the cars front end turning in. Just the rear wants to slide out.

Get rid of the rear bar, change your rear ride height to equal the front ride height and put some anti dive in the front. (+.75 front rear adjuster instead of the 0) And maybe try going for a longer rear wb setting.

Its more work but if you still find the back end unstable try the anti-dive, it will settle a dancing back end down.

If your car is only too loose for you off-power, you can also reduce the rear droop to the 2-2.5mm ORH range.

Uneven rear toe will make the car inconsistent. Was the car stepping out equally on corner entry turning both directions?

If you make adjustments and find the rear too "locked in", try moving your rear QRC to position 3, OR, take a little rear toe out of the car, to regain corner speed and free the rear end up slightly.

No the car seemed to only give me problems making right turns mostly. Left toe was 2 and Right toe was 2.5. And i know everyone there runs 3deg so i used different thickness shims intill i got each side set at 3deg. And i just keep adjusting camber half turn at a time intill i got them both at 2.5 or as close as possible im using the old plastic hudy set-up station

That makes sense. With more toe on the RR, you had a bit of rear-steer for right hand corners.

Sounds like you have your base set-up back, with a bag of tricks to try for next race, good luck.

Just got my new t3 2011 and am going to put it together soon. Previously all of my TCs were tub chasis cars so this is a step up for me.

I read about how some are glueing the edges of the chasis. Can someone point me in the right direction here?

Also, the main track I race at is very small and tight. What is a good starting setup?

I decided on a new kit as the price was close to what I have seen them go for used so I am starting fresh from the box here.
