what is the advantage of the arm sweep in the front?

I ran the conversion here in the UK for the first time last week and was surprised at how much mid corner it has.

Running C FF X FR and XB RF and D RR

Is there any disadvantage from running too much front sweep?

If you don't change other settings to compensate for the reduced initial steering then less corner entry steering will occur, too much mid-corner steering might cause the car to be unstable and over-rotate.

The track is tight.
thanks

When Narrowing the rear one step what block combo did you end up with?
did you use C rr and XC rf to keep the 3.0 toe?

Thanks for that Fred, must admit that was exactly what was happening but didnt realise this was the problem.

I am going to try and run C/B on the front as i understand that this will increase mid corner on a fast track?

Hi fred, can I just confirm you are saying that running front arm sweep takes away initial steering ?? I thought it added initial steering, this could be why my car wont turn into a corner properly

What block setup would you use in the rear to get the Hagberg mod or close to it?

While having not run the XR3, I would agree with that assessment, front arm sweep should reduce initial.

Default 21.5 blinky Australia

Just picked one of these second hand and rebuilt cleaned and shimmed up.
is there a starting setup sheet or instruction sheet to get T3 Asphalt kit basic setup for wheelbase, roll centre heights etc.
noticed has a lot more adjustment for wheelbase and i have eyeballed shims to match T3. (got a good eye tool and diemaker by trade)
as described we run 21.5 blinky so everything had to be free and loose.
current t3 running 2deg rear toe/side other than that pretty much to book setup. Just want a bit of guidance as i am going to order more blocks and spacers and don't want to be short of options. or should i just get every block i don't have but i am sure there is some i would never use as may be more carpet orientated.
track is technical med to high grip painted asphalt.

Default carpet

just wondering if people had experience of running this on high grip carpet. I raced at the weekend for the first time and the car was terrible. It was only when i started running 3.2 front springs and 3.0 rear that the car was ok.

Do people find they have to run harder springs than the stock chassis?

By chance I found the same just days ago. The car had improved consistency on med-high grip carpet with heavier springs.
