Introduction
Car setup can be a difficult and controversial step in getting your car to its maximum performance. Even if you have extensive knowledge of your car and know all the theories on handling dynamics, this knowledge is still tedious to use in practice because of the inherent complexity in the set-up process itself.
Your new T1 touring car with fully independent suspension features the highest number of adjustments possible to get the most performance out of any track condition. Setting the car is necessary to make the car perform well. We have developed these straight-forward procedures to help you set-up your T1 properly and easily.
Always follow these procedures step-by-step, in the order presented, and always make sure that you make equal adjustments on both left and right sides of the car.

The set-up described here is a good starting point, but you may adjust the settings to better suit different track conditions. Only change one thing at a time, in order to get a better understanding of what consequence each change has on the handling of the car. Remember to document all the changes you make, and the effect they have on your car and lap times.

XRAY publishes new set-up information, hot tuning tips, and the latest hop-ups for your T1 on the www.teamxray.com website. With your member card
you can sign in and personalize the page according your taste, discuss the car with other T1 drivers, and store your setups online. XRAY, as a member of www.myTSN.com, publishes all news at the myTSN.com RC portal. As a proud owner of a T1, you can register your car at myTSN and you may post your own set-ups to the website, either as public or private data, and even link the set-ups directly to a particular track or event (providing that those are present on myTSN.com).
