Default A few questions on the T3R...

So I just bought a T3R.. Wondering if there is any parts that i need to get in advance. Also, are the shocks aluminum bodied or plastic? I intend to just convert it to a 2011 T3, what is the part number(s) for the conversion? How good are the kits? I assume being Xray, it will go togethet smoothly, however is there anything i should look out for? Thanks!

I'm running a T3r. Shocks are plastic, and there's no need to change them. You will probably want turnbuckles, but other wise it should be just fine.

Here's the T3'11 conversion #300945-L

It is intended to convert a T3 '10 to an '11 though so it only includes the top and bottom CF, the lipo holders and the steering system. You will still have the FRP shock towers, aluminum cvd's, older style c-hubs, composite rear diff outdrives, deep-dish shock bladders, and of course the silver bulkheads and aluminum parts.

Is it good? Oh, yeah!

I prefer to drill the shock caps to relieve the pressure above the bladder with a 1 mm drill bit. Makes the shocks easier to get even with little rebound. Double check the screws going into the aluminum after each run the first few outings. Set the shocks to 63 mm long all around.

For our track I am running
2.5 r camber
1 f camber
5 mm RH
arms full back
6 droop front
5.5 droop rear
3 r toe
0 f toe
short ackerman setting
1 hole away from layed down on the tower in the rear
middle tower hole in front


Come see me once you get it all together and we'll get it spot on.

Thanks Andrew for that. Yeah, I decided to sell my Cyclone because of the absolute zero parts availability anywhere. I was going to race Thursday, but instead I will just be over there building my car while watching Dustin. After I assemble it all to your specs, I will need to take it back there and set droop and ride height since I do not have the gauges.

I also figured getting the car dialed will be a lot easier because of most everyone running an Xray.

Thanks for answering my questions! Ill see ya Thursday!
