All the 416 chassis plates already have the holes drilled. They use the two outer most holes in line with the current suspension block holes.

There's no reason why they do/don't work. But I don't think they offer any performance gains over the standard blocks. Maybe you save a little weight? And some say they are easier to adjust. But I know I'm happy not to spend money on them.

Yes there's no performance gain from using the separated suspension blocks but it will save you like 2 minutes when replacing a belt, currently you need to remove the inner suspension block when replacing a belt.

Something else I spotted from looking at the TA05v2, is that with the new mounts, it would appear that you effectively get two blocks in one. Swapping the left hand with the right hand will give different pin hole widths. Find a pic of the front of the v2, and you'll see the block tops marked with an A and XA.
At a guess, I would figure they'll come as follows;
X
A / XA
B / XB
C / XC
D / XD
E
F

Ed

nice! I assume the FR block would be a lot harder to bend too

If they don't bend as easily, I may be in lurve!


So I've been practicing with the car at 1425g in preparation for Vegas, and it feels a bit unsettled. Maybe softer springs all around since there's not as much weight to transfer around? White/Blue seems a little twitchy.

They will also change the flex characteristics of the chassis. They should allow the chassis to flex a bit more at whichever end you put them on. Could be good to get that little extra steering or traction.

Makes fixing a lower arm faster too.

So I should stay clear of these if I dont want more flex?

We run foam on asphalt and I'm not too sure what more flex in the chassis will do???

Notice that if they are swapped side to side that you have 2 different settings.
IN or OUT.... Pretty cleaver eh?!
