Make sure you are not comparing 'apples and oranges'.
A lot of the team driver setups use alu shocks with 1.1mm hole pistons.

The kit shocks are 1.0mm holes.
My totally un-scientific testing brought me the conclusion that 350Cts with kit shocks is around 450Cts with the alu's and 1.1mm pistons

I am assembling my t3 12 and using a setup I got from Cold aa Ice. I have also looked at other setup sheets and noticed that most everyone is running short camber links for there roll center. I have always thought that longrr links decrease camber gain and settle that end making it more stable or less aggressive. Also how many mm of spacers can I run in front of the rear arms (wishbones) it seems like I can fit 4mm. My purpose is to create a docile car for my 8 year old son to run outdoors on asphalt low traction and tight track

Docile doesn't really work with tight tracks I found, but the kit setup works well on low-med grip asphalt outdoors and is docile.

Hey Guys Gotta Question,

For people running Tamyia shocks on the T3 2012. What weight old would you recommend for Low to Med bite asphalt w solara hard compound tires. Im running 13.5 Blinky or 17.5 Blinky

The pistons are, I think 3 hole 1.2mm.

45wt losi, but this really needs to be matched with your spring setup, I have 2 hole piston up front and used 35wt, and used 45 in the rear with 3 hole and 2.6/2.4 springs. I think most are running at least a 2.8/3.0 front spring there, you really want to copy Als car, lol.

I noticed today that the plastic bearing retainer on the layshaft is cracked, it is the piece that keeps the layshaft in place between the bearing and top deck.

I don't see a part #
any help ?
