I also had my first runs with the T3'11 this weekend and the car was absolutely awesome! I used EA's setup with only a minor shock oil change in the front and the car was so nice to drive!

Set your ride height, then using your ride height gauge, measure the point when the tires just lift free, subtract that reading from your ride height value, that gives you your over ride height [ORH] droop value. I use downstop blocks to make sure everything is even side to side and recheck as well.

doing it this way is easier to compare droop values with other drivers, if you're not using the same tires. If you race somewhere with a spec premount tire, downstop values can be compared a little easier.

HTH.

I guess I'll look over EA's setup to see if anything jumps out at me. I should have time to do some testing the next couple weeks to see if I can get the car closer to what I want. Didn't make sense that the car seemed more stable driving so aggressively, felt like I was just jerking the car around the track.

I'm sure I'm missing something relatively simple, but I can already tell this car will be real nice once I get some fine tuning on it.

They measure different things, the gauges actually measure your downstops not your droop. The droop will change as you raise/lower your ride height, the downstops will not

Change your camber to -1.5 front and -3 rear and go to one step heavier front spring, rest of car setup looks good. The heavier front spring will take the laziness out of the car, the -3 will lock the rear in better.

My setup is really really easy to drive on our lower bite track. For a higher bite track you may want to go up on the front shock oil a little. I also think I am running 2.8 front springs but cant remember if I have those on the sheet or its something Ive changes since then. Everyone at my track that has driven it loves the way it feels. Tons of steering, stable and carries great corner speed. Our track is very bumpy too and it eats the bumps up!!

On my rear droop I set it like Paul showed me at the birds last year and it works pretty much 98% of the time on all tracks. After you set the ride height set your car on the car stand and tighten the rear droop screws up till the spring barely touches the collar but has NO tension on it. this will give you about 2mm of rear up travel and works great most of the time. Ive never had to change more than 1/8th of a turn either way on the droop screw from this setting.

Front I do it by feel and is at 2.5mm over ride height to begin with. Most of the time as the bite comes up I'll take some out and end up around 1.5-2mm of up travel (above ride height) on the front.
