I usually use ASC4617 for the front height. I use Xray303131, 303132 and 303133 for fine tuning...

For the rear I use ASC4351 mostly, I also use CRC3383.

I've used them before Josh...lol...

This is why I was asking for the AE full set part # but apparently they just make the individual one's now. Just trying to avoid going around and asking racers if they have spares...lol

Thanks for telling me they have the seperate one's though



Thank you for everyone's answers

quick question.. was looking at my 5.1 and thought the rear axel wasnt centered right. quick measurement says the outside of the wheel is .5mm off from center.

the manual isnt that clear, but are you supposed to put 4 shims on both sides of the rear axle?

You cannot go by the manual or shims. Measure the total width of the rear, which should be 172mm. We almost never change this width on the rear of the car. Use whatever shims needed to achieve 172mm.

They will probably not be equal. You can measure from the center hole on the bottom plate to the inside of each wheel to make sure you are centered.

There are more accurate ways to measure it, but I just use my Hudy setup board decal to help center it.

Looking at the setup sheets I noticed none of the drivers mark what castor they are using does that mean everybody uses the standard castor which I believe is the 10.5 on the bulk heads.
Also on the setup sheet it says t plate used, but in the manual I cannot find anywhere where a t plate is used.

Are you looking at the sheets for 12r5.(/1/2)?

Upper left box named front suspension. Upper arm mounts(reactive caster) 10-5-0 degrees and the drawing below is caster: 1.80-3.25-6.15.

Cars now use side links instead of t-bars. Im not alloved to post links here, but if you back go to page 234 in this thread, there is a link posted by Rich Howart on a current set-up. Here he use 10 deg upper arm mount(reactive caster) and caster 3.25 deg, the std settings. On page 236 setting attachment by masterhit: 5 deg UAM & caster 6.15.

Think i was rolling 180 almost. Oh well another lesson in rebuilding your car when you buy it used ha.
Little tricky to measure with calipers. I just took a ruler, sharp pencil and paper to make a grid.
