I'd check out the new SMC 7200/90 or SPC, ProMatch, or you could try GensAce
Have you had a chance to try those true rating ones yet?

I ran them last weekend for practice, and am going to use them for racing tomorrow. Worked great on 2s and 4s so far.

How do you change the anti squat with 2 screws? Don't you have to take the back end apart to access the C block to change the pills?

What he said... ^

You can use one of your hex drivers to pop out the pills from the C block to mess with it further...

Interesting. I'll try that next time.

Also, is there any easy way ti explain how the pills work with regards to degrees etc. I understand the difference in -2 degrees toe vs 2 degrees toe (for example) but I don't understand how the "dots" correlate to certain values

Thank you. I tried look on the first page and it has some information about this but it doesn't seem to relate to the pills that are included with the kit.

I found a video on youtube with how to adjust toe and bump but nothing about the pills.

I hope they reposed back to you. I feel that's the one area that I am just lost on

Howdy guys...
understanding the how the dots on the pills is pretty simple once you grasp the concept. I will use the rear toe as an example.

Start with the C-block having one dot in the center. And the D-block having one dot in the center. That is the stock setting of 3 degrees of rear toe-in.

Now just changing the D-block pill. Keeping the pill on the center line, but the dot is now on the outside. You have changed the angle of the hinge pin 1 degree. You will now have 4 degrees of read toe-in.
If you use a pill with two dots (still on the center line) to the outside, 2-dots is only a half of degree of change. You would then have 3.5 degrees of toe-in.
This would work the same if you moved the dots to the inside instead of the outside. You would end up with 2.5 degrees using the 2-dot pill or 2 degrees if you used the 1-dot pill.

So single dots equal a 1-degree of angle on the hinge pin.
and two dots equal a .5-degree of angle on the hinge pin.

This works the same in each block.
If you move the center line dot on the C-block to the outside (single dot) and the center line dots on the D-block to the outside (single dot). You will still have the same 3 degrees you started with because you moved them both the same amount.
On the other hand if you move the C-block to the inside (single dot) and the D-block to the outside (single dot) you will now have 5 degrees of rear toe in...

the same applies for anti-squat in the rear.
In the front it is termed sweep and kick-up.

Congratulations. You have succeeded in explaining it in a manner that even I can understand. Thanks for taking the time to do that. Until now I didn't get it even after a few explanations. You should be a teacher

Raced my SCT for the first time ever, and got 2nd... very happy with that!! Going to change the diffs from stock, to 15/15/10 from 5/5/5. Also putting in my 6x1.5 pistons, and ordering the new HRC rear hubs... can't wait to see how it handles after the changes! Woo!

Lowspark, this is an excellent write up.

The simple fact that 1 dot is 1 degree of adjustment and 2 dots is .5 degree of adjustment is huge. Thank you for that!!!

One question though...using your C block example.... I can visualize it in my brain that it would be a pretty aggressive toe in. However, I can't quite make sense of it with regards to the actual number. If the D block was a center dot and the c block was a center dot making 3 degrees toe in......if you moved the c block inside 1 dot would that make it 2 degrees toe in?

On the setup sheet I am referencing the anti squat is "max." While using the pills with the center dot on the c and d block, what is the numeric number for the degrees? Toe is -3 but anti squat is.......
