For me the non-adjustable pistons are far more consistant than the clicker pistons.

Just use the three hole non adjustables and you should be good to go!

and ASC3981 ballstuds will fit with no dremeling...use a shorter buttonhead through the lower shock tower hole, same length as a spur gear screw I think.

Is there any grinding necessary with those?

Just wondering how much different are the setups between the T3 and 008? I know the motor was moved forward so I'm guessing more steering? I had so much steering with my 008 and had to dial a lot out. I had a great setup then and I'll be racing same track conditions. Many of the team setups are geared torwards the mains with high traction, but my local track has low-med. Thanks.

The setup should be close. I always tell people go with what you know and tune from there. The setup that comes with the kit will be good for low to med bite also.

Thanks Drew

I made my hillbilly links with Tamiya ballstuds and ballcups as well. No modification needed.

No, the only reason we used TC5 links, ballstuds, and ball cups, is because they were hanging on the wall at our LHS. Just take the Xray rod ends off your current links and use those on top of the caster blocks. Only if you want to run the ballstud all the way in do you have to grind.

Wish I would have known that before i went dremel happy on the bulkheads At least the T3 11 will be clean and free of any grinding.

It appears the T3'11 is off to an awesome start at the ETS race this weekend. Half of the A main in the Pro stock class is Xray T3'11. Only one car managed to make it into the Mod main in 10th but there are 4-5 more in the B main as well.

Shouldnt be much longer now!!

Oh ok, great! Glad to see they included a setup for low-med traction. Drew would you recommend the hillbilly link for VTA? lol Just wondered if it was something to consider in VTA or is it more for higher speed classes?
