Thanks Drew
I ran the H's tonight and it did work well down and in on the front end.

I did not see that before. That is how I ran them. How many shims did you run on the outside link? The car had a lot of steering. How can I smooth that out? Would running a wider front track width smooth it out?

2mm is what I ran. Check out my set up from the Halloween Race on www.teamxray.com under Andrew Ellis. I think playing with the ackerman is what you need to do. That will help with making the car smooth out.

Thanks Drew

For your ackerman your front wheelbase plays into that. So I am long front wheelbase with 4mm shims for ackerman.

My setup was really good at the Halloween Race I would try the whole setup and see what you think, maybe just some fine tuning from there to suit your driving.

Thanks Drew

Default Shock shims

What effect does shiming the front or rear shocks outward away from the shock tower have? Thanks

When moving the arms forward or rearward on the chassis for a setup, I make them vertical again (from the side view) by shimming the shocks at either the tower (top) or arms (bottom). Whichever end requires it. This eliminates the added angles created by moving the arms.

Just wondering what is the difference between a 409 and 407 Ko receiver. I have a EX-10 Eurus which comes with a 409 receiver. Just wondering if i can go for 407 since they are cheaper. Is there any performance gain on 409 receivers?

Yes you can run them in all 4 spots. The L's to what I understand will be at a higher point then the H's in that same spot.

I think the 407's will work, but the 409's are faster with the radio system. I will try to get Robert from KoPropo to better supply us with some info. From what I understand the radio system has different speeds that you can choose how fast the radio responds to the rx. With the 409 you can have it as fast as it will allow. With the 407 it will limit the speed.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Drew

Default Setup Sheet Question

On the setup sheet for the T3, there is a measurement that I can't quite figure out .. on top of the sheet where it specifies caster, ride height, etc.

On either side of the word 'wheelbase/mm' there are some checkboxes,

0 - 1 - 1 for the front and 2 - 1 - 0 for the rear, which are checked for certail setups, what do these stand for?

If this is for wheelbase, and the checkboxes are for shims, I would have thought you had 5mm to play with, 2 + 2 + 1 shims in any combination.

The easiest way to under stand those boxes is like this. The set up sheet is asking "How many shims are you using in front of the arm?"

Can someone please make a tutorial on how to bleed the shocks! Everytime I release the bottom cap and do what the instructions say I get air in the shock.
