Yes, I have and still currently in use. So far so good...the pin no longer move. It works very well.

for high grip carpet, should i use the standard top deck or go with the 1.6mm I have both, but since my wires are attached to the standard top deck, its really a lot of work to switch and did not want to do it if its worse thanks

I read somewhere that if you use the solid rear suspension holder (302048-O) instead of the two piece it will solve this, is this correct and will i notice any difference in handling?

You can try flipping the arms left to right and the hubs too if running zero degrees... sometimes the arms have variances in toe due to nylon shrinkage factors... what Bigz84 said also +1.

Looks like you're going to test it for us

Why do you have wires attached to your top deck?
You really don't want anything attached as it may reduce flex in one direction etc.

Tried the loosening/tightening thing, but didn't work... so I just added the shim, like you did, to get it closer to where I needed. It's fine now, I guess. I'd still like a better answer as to WHY this occurs. Is this an oops by Xray?

that sucks, sorry bout that. i have equal shims left to right, and both sides are dead on. i have heard that there is a manufacture error, but i don't know how much truth there is to that. I have read too that you really don't feel the difference in rear toe. i ran the 1/2 degree off in rear toe for a couple months and when i did the fix above, i really didn't feel a difference.

Default Rear toe

Still having trouble with rear toe being un even so decided to switch the lower suspension bulheads left to right and then ended up with 2.5 degrees left and right so have added a 0.4mm shim and now it seems even, very odd!!

the car has arrived - will literally start the build in less than 5 hours time and trawled through this thread for build tips... what a machine... very impressed.

Which size ECS would you use with a front gear diff with steel outdrives?

If you mean the one that was designed for the T3'11 originally, I'm running it.
Problem is I haven't yet run the proper T3'12 chassis (on order)

Why run ECS with a front gear diff? It's not a spool, so it will have some diff action no matter what weight fluid or putty you put in there. Just run the stock CVD driveshafts. Besides, I thought you were running a TC6.1?

I was curious and I still do wonder which it would be. CVD or ECS I am curious the length.
