The mod does basically just relocate the washers. But it moves them from a 5 or 6mm stack on a piece of plastic to a 5mm stack onto a peice of aluminum. The reason I decided to do it was because of the multiple sources I got it from. After seeing the new triple at Glitch, seems like it might save me a few knuckles.
Ok on the Capt. America mod, you run 2mm washers under steering assembly
And how many washers on arms and knuckles if at 30 degree caster?

I was told specifically 5.8 for 30 degrees. But 5.5 or 6 is more my speed. 4.8 for 25 degrees. I'm not gonna notice .2-.3 like some people can.

So I am using a teking 10.5t geared 69/30, and it is tie to step up to a hotter motor, so I am gonna go with a reedy 8.5t. I have searched this thread and have found most are running around 87/25, can anyone confirm this is a good setup, or recommend a better one?

Also I have switched to the plus 8 carbon fiber chassis and although it needed a totaly new setup, i now have it handling very well. I does provide much better corner grip and is much more nimble due to the weight loss.

it's to eliminate all the spacers you need to run in the stock configuration to eliminate bumpsteer

The car had/has bump steer in stock form. Capt. figured out the formula where it was a non issue, and also did away with a pile of spacers, and an unusually long ball stud tower on the c-hub. I have used the same config for 25* and 30* caster, and have had no issues. I can post pics if someone needs to see the original models, it would be a cool sticky for this forum, if thats a possibility because it comes a lot..

81/24-25 for an 8.5. Very mildly boosted, 10 degrees or less.

Here are some pics of mine, dirt and all..2mm washers on the rack 1mm washers on the c/hub. If you use other brand ballstuds, you may have to check the height of them compared to the Durango studs, they are possibly taller (the Losi studs are 1mm taller).

Not a problem, note you need a low profile nut on the bottom of the ballstuds under the rack, clearance is minimal..

I use these, trust me when I say you will never look at other o-rings again.

How are you liking the chassis so far flame56? Just got finished transferring my car over to it yesterday. Made a slight mod to it, added my own countersunk holes to the bottom for a new placement of the battery stopper since the spacing is slightly different from the aluminum chassis. Going to be running my battery smack dab in the middle now, since I moved my tekin rs to the rear. Removed my 30g weight up front and went to dark green springs for the rear which should help equalize where I use to run my battery before.
