I was hoping for some set up advice on here but it looks like someone copied and pasted the first 20 pages from the t3'11 thread.. Lmao
I want alu shocks.....
I run Alu shocks and plastic shocks and don't have a problem with either.
Xray make a quality product that lasts. Still winning with my t2 009 and my t3'11's not bad either. Got my 12 last week and am looking forward to building it.
I will return for some set up advise when the threads a bit older

from discussions and past cars i've owned compared to Xray.
the bulkhead clamps provide a bit more fine tuning for roll center adjustments.
-shim up down
-extend or lengthen the link itself.
etc..etc.

should make finding the right setup for your driving style a bit more easier.
Xray Setup book: page 25 is my reference point

Default Bulkhead Clamps

I race on really high bite asphalt and was never really able to get enough steering with the Factory Xray Clamps because like others I could not go low enough on the inside camber link. I used the Max Carbon Clamps and was able to increase aggression and steering.

With the new updates to the 2012 has anyone experienced the car working better because of the changes and/or did they change the clamps at all lowering the mounting position. I will probably hold on to my max carbon clamps and not sell them with my 2011 if the car does not work better with the Factory Clamps.

Default Multi-Diff LiPo

Has anybody experience with the Multi-Diff LiPo which came out with the T3'011?

On the Xray site there is no information if you can run it with the 52mm drive shaft. The old Multi-Diff could only be run with 50mm drive shafts.

There was some discussion earlier in this thread that the clamps are the same as the original option parts for the 2011.

yes I believe it's a carry over.
anyone else please confirm.

I believe the Xray site/shop parts listing will show compatible parts.

Is there a definitive list somewhere of the parts needed to convert an 11 to a 12?

I would say look at the manuals and illustrated parts breakdowns.

Default Servo Saver

Ok perhaps I'm doing something wrong, But I cant seem to work the servo saver out, am I supposed to put all 4 springs in their? As it feels incredibly tight and hard to get in.

Besides that I'm loving the build thus far.

Yes, you should be putting all the U shaped springs in.
Just make sure you do them in order.
They need to be tight to do their job without slack etc during heavy cornering.

I found the manual wrong for this bit, the way i did it was to clip all the plastic parts together first, then insert as appropiate the 4 u shaped clips (as skiddins says this needs to be in the correct order smallest to largest

Not sure if the above makes sense, let us know via return if this works better for you

Run the car for the first time at the weekend and the servo saver done its job so i cant have been too wrong with the build of this part
