Its also narrowed up behind the front droop screws and in front of the rears.

Many Thanx
When running the low roll centers on the bulkheads you want to start with the upper links parallel with the arms. To do this you have to have the inside lower by .75-1mm.

Really, the only thing that interests me is the top deck and chassis so I can turn the servo. I've got all the other bits on my '11 already.

Sounds like all you need is a dremel and you are all set...

Any idea how long until we will see the T3 2011 Spec R version? Soon I hope.

I use the spec r clamps they have a much lower profile maybe 2mm lower they are just the ideal thing for my set up

Yes I was wrong about FF!

The clamps in the T3-12 have the same part number as the separately available ones, so I assume they are the same height.

Where in the manual does it say that? They have the same part number as the optional parts.

They say put 1mm shim under inner camber links and front otherside same 1mm and rear 4mm shims like L1-L2 arrangement
I might be wrong but I guess 1mm lower ...
I hope that make sense
Cheers

Right, we need someone to; hurry up and get their kit, then measure the clamps for us

The exploded view lists the upper clamps as 302028-O.
Same # = same part.

possible ,they may want people start with h1-h2 height...
,I was thinking if we add some height to inner camber link we should also add some to outside...
extra 1mm over C hub and 1mm over rear upright is the recommended by Martin Hudy.
they might made a mistake there :/
well we should ask that on xray forums...
