pilot, I assume you have the kit yellow springs for the special. For carpet I would get a set of greens and a set of oranges. Right now my car is just crap, can't get it to work worth sh*t. I'll work on it tomorrow, and if I arrive on anything I think works, I'll post it here. Have you tried using the #3 pistons in the rear? I am strugling to get enough steering, especially on power, so I run the same piston all around. The car feels like it is too stuck, I thought I had it freed up, but was told it was still stuck...sigh...

If you do want to go heavier, I would say no higher than 70, and if you did go 70, put #2 pistons all round, 70 with #3's up front will give the car almost no roll in the front, and you would loose a lot of steering, I think. But experimenting is how you learn, so I encourage you to try it, and share your results with us.

You waiting for some of the three degree front hub carriers Josh?
I don't know if my HV's and hub carriers will arrive in time for the nats in three weeks.
My Big Jim tuned MVP and Tribo drops have shown up though, looking forward to laying the smack down, if I can

Hi Guys,

We should have the new 3 degree and 7 degree (I believe) castor block, and the transponder mount in stock next week. We got the hollow layshaft in stock this week, and we also have the new pink springs in stock as well. Look for them soon on our website!

Thanks

Ausracer,
To run the one way on your PRO, you'll need a 15 tooth front drive pulley, part number ZM-674. Add a capital "H" for the hardened one which I recommend(ZM-674H).

To use the one way unit you need to put a small pin into the center layshaft, then push the 15t pulley so it locks onto the pin.
You then slide the one way unit on the other end of the shaft and Voila! it's ready to go.
Just use thin shims to space the assembly out so it spins freely.

Any problems or questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Simon, I'll probably get both the 7 and 3 blocks, they are cheap and nice tuning options to have. Right now my car has plenty of turn in, but not enough high speed steering, so I'm thinking maybe the 7's will be best...

I got a pack of HV's about a week ago, they are simply amazing! Will probably be getting three more and a T35 stealth and a Ti or two very soon, to run mod Just hope ROAR doesn't run foamies at the carpet nats, then our track will run them...And the yokomo has a fair ammount of flex, not good.
