Usually when this is listed people are talking about the clicker pistons that are adusted from two to four holes. I believe the clicker pistons are .9 or 1mm piston holes.
the 1-1 1-2 and 1-0 pistons refer to the 1.1 1.2 and 1.0 mm hole pistons
Without the piston hole specified in the setup its hard to tell.
Use smaller holed pistons on smooth tracks, larger hole pistons on bumpy tracks

Absolutely, we had a race this weekend and even as the grip came up the car was the best I have ever driven it.

The setup is for a med size, med traction carpet track. He calls for 350 shock oil.

I hate to bring up the esc drive shafts again but I have done some reading on them which just means I am more confused than before.

I have a T3'11 for sedan that use the spool and stock 52mm shafts. It rattles but I am going to live with it for now.

i also have a t3'10 setup for vta. It rattles and I would like to try the ecs shafts on this as a test. I have heard from fellow racers that the esc shafts (xray/spec-r0 break easier than the stock shafts so I want to try them here.

Basically I see 3 choices...
52mm Xray
50mm Xray
Spec-r

The Spec-r shafts don't give a size so I that is were i get confused. I don't have the funds to switch the entire car over. The Spec-r shafts have a better price but how long are they? Will I notice a difference between the lengths if the front is 50mm and the rear is 52?

I'd go with the Spec-r shafts but not if it means replacing all 4 corners with new shafts.

You only need the ECS driveshafts on the front if you're using a spool. The rear uses a diff, so you don't need them there.

the spec r ecs shafts lasted me about 3 race days before the main solid shaft sheared into two. The XRAY ones are worth the money IMO.

Save Your $$- don't buy spec-r shafts and then have to buy xray ecs to replace the spec-r junk. Most folks are running 50mm ecs...

Agreed. They're not cheap, but worth the investment.

I use Xrays 52 mm. I had the 50mm first but kept breaking the out-drives. Once I went to 52mm the problem stopped. Most people I know run 52mm in the front since you space it out with the shims. You don't need ESC's in the rear.
