Yep they fit without any issues.

Hi guys, I am new to XRAY products. My question is, which car, T3 or T3'11 has a bigger sweet spot in terms of finding a good setup. Also what is the difference between the handling of these 2 cars? Are the lap times very different?

Hey Drew, do you run the ECS drive shafts? Also, I plan on running a gear diff in the front, is it still good to run ECS drive shafts when using a gear diff? From What I understand it is recomended to run the ECS when running the spool, but wasnt sure if they were as important when running a gear diff.

I like that idea.

Yes, at the Halloween race I ran a front gear diff with the ECS's. And yes the ECS's are setup more for a spool. I feel that they are always good to run, but the feeling my be more noticeable with the spool. But I dont think they hurt it. I run the 52s ECS's in the front with the standard 50s in the rear.

Thanks Drew

The T3'11. I have been faster with mine, feel that the car makes more traction over all then the T3. The car is still really new so I am sure we will learn more about the car. Mine and Paul's setup are on line at www.teamxray.com. I think these are really good base setups.

Thanks Drew

No, not "still", but "back to". It went T3, TOP Photon, Tamiya 416, now back to a T3 '11.
