+1 they do look very good. I also like that it can do the more modern looking narrow body look too. Price isn't bad for what you get either.

I wonder if Amain will be carrying this.

I'm my opinion. I think you would see a benefit with the exotek Chasis because you can push more weight rearward to improve rear traction. But if you are on loose stuff I don't know it it would be too squirrelly being a shorter Chasis?? If your on a tight track definatley exotek. Big 1/8 open track maybe stick with the plus 11.
Anyone else??

Default Tresrey steering linkage

I just found this online by accident. Seems to lower the inner linkage which should help with bump steer.

What you all think?? Paste link below in browser.

I run the droops screws in, however, at least on a really muddy track the front bulkhead can pack with dirt on the drop stops so I have a bulkhead already ready to go with the stops cutoff.

I use mine. Work them in slowly. Screw in a little, then back out. Then little more, then back out. If you don't use them then u will have to use limiters in your shocks. Droop screws are so much easier.

And what Cain said on muddy tracks is where they don't work.

I haven't tried the exotek steering block yet. I did add the RDRP linkage which eliminated my bump steer. I run 0 degree castor inserts, so I am at 25 degree kick up. I run a 1mm washer under outside ball stud.
