Yeah Chris you could be right. After the above post, I remembered I did run an extra shim in each corner of my 008 when I ran the higher roll center. Can't remember if the 008 setup used more shims than the T3'11 per instructions or not. I think with the combination of the shorter rear/front once peice the and higher roll centers it may be causing it to bind. Thanks guys. I'll check it out closer.

I don't have a T3'11, but a T2'009, and I have no problems with running the same roll-center as you. No binding at all.

humm...well mine bind with the shocks and tires. I run 5mm ride height and they bind around 3-4 mm of compression. Some other guy here said he had the same issue with his T3R and went to the 50mm bones. Not sure what to do now other than add shims. Part of it has to be the rear one peice mount, since it's not equal in length to the rear bulk heads. Why I'm not sure. What do you do? I'm not buying 50mm bones. I hate to change track width, but it's the cheaper way to go.

Thats exactly how I did mine except I added CF pins to key the pulley to the case. What keeps your pulley from spinning on the case under power?

The T3/T3'11 front rear arm mounts are not "inline" with the bulkheads. The T3 has more built in toe than the older platforms.

i drilled some notches all around the case where the thick plastic material is on, as well as quite a number small hole cut-outs on the plastic wall and added epoxy material in those voids to get a good grip on the diff case, the epoxy also engulfed the pulley plastic so i hope it'll hold...
still not sure how this though... only tests will tell..

Like Express said the "11 has more built in rear toe. Just add the spacers you need to free up your bind issue and then run the -.75 hexes, that should get you close on the width.

hi bud thanks for putting pic up looks very clean any chance on taking the cover off the pulley to see how it stays in one place without moving underpower.cheers
