James
from memory.....
Some cars with the spec-r gear diffs need 50mm
I think 50/52mm depends on what version of the car you have

Well I have been running the cars on temp ozite carpet.(setup and taken down each day)

The TC.. I have going ok now.. I simply need to be a better driver to drive it I think.

The VTA is getting better, but the 21.5 novak I am running.. I am not getting enough top end.

I am running 45/96 now.. and running temp is coming off about 150 deg. Its OK..

Question.. what kind of droop are people running.. and in answering that.. tell me what method your using to measure.

I am keeping it even.. but at the moment.. just adjusting the droop forward and back till I am getting the corner traction I want.. and I will then measure it.

I have an associated droop gauge, not sure if its type of measure is universal? some measure with a ruler? Or I guess I could just grab a Hudy gauge and measure the same way as the setup book.

James

I am going to continue to seach threads,

but I want to know for this car .. and I am running it in spec TC and VTA - what is a good downstop F/R
and Droop F/R

Also how do you measure? can you point to a good tutorial? I am having a hard time with this.

I have an AE droop gauge, a Speed Mind Tweak board, Hudy pin balance stops, vernier calipers.. Hudy board to measure on.. but im not seeming to get things right.

James,
Come see me when you come to the track next time. I will explain it all to you.

i found this guy explained over ride height well and gave me a better understanding of both ovrh and droop blocks

just picked up a T3 '11 and the servo mounting posts are missing, does anyone know where to find them or alternate ones that might work?

If you can't find a post try using other brands (like TC6's) and jimmy rig it some how. I've also shoe gooed servos to the chassis and never had them come off(yeah i know it's ghetto).
