Any ideas
Many people with overtighten the grub screws which weakens the pin causing it to snap. The screw only need be snug then put some heat shrink on the joint to keep the pin from escaping if the grub screw does become loose.

Get a dremel and grind a little in the middle of the pin so it have enough space in wich the screw seats and the pin wont slide off . . . that's the way i did and my pins never slide off as they did in the T3r

but i just don't like the way it looks... hence i built it the other "complicated" way. IMO, it was not that complicated...

here's the "new build" mounted on the car:

u have to admit, that looks way more cooler...
HK all peoples used this !

I have moved over from the Photon and the pins have a flat spot in and are also a perfect fit for the T3 011.

Just had my first Big meeting with the T3 011 and after a couple of hard qualifiers I took a 4th and 5th in the A finals so good result in all. Made a couple of small changes from kit set up but really only to get rid of steering. Also a friends first outing with the car and he got 1st in both B finals 13.5 so seems to be going well locally.

LOL ya almost! Although this time I was wearing contacts until we went to lunch and one fell out. They are the one-day kind and it was pretty much done as soon as it fell out.

I drove this time, but no way I was driving 2+ hours back home to get glasses!!

Thanks Rui!

Yea, I was very pleased with it being the first day out. A little more work on locking down the rearend and I think we might be able to increase the amount of Xray cars in the pits Let me know if you have any questions when you get yours.

Hope to see you all again soon!

Saturday at Horsham went well for the first Test day with the T3'11. After changing a few things for the first round, I was able to match the hotlap set by L. Fairtrace. Unfortunetly, driver error caused some problems...

Looking forward to doing more testing with the T3'11!
