You can adjust anti-dive, anti-squat and kick-up. Really, they're not horribly necessary unless you know you'll be racing on a surface with either tons of traction, or hardly any at all. They're nice to have, as it makes for a really effective method of dialing in or dialing out traction.

Are they more durable than the plastic? That's all I really care about.

Yes. They might bend, but that's a risk you take with any alloy or aluminum part.

I've only found the screws to bend, not the blocks themselves.

You have to give them a really good hit, but i have seen it possible to "bruise" the end of the alloy block, but it does need a good whack.

That said, never done any damage at all to any plastic blocks at all.

Is there somewhere that shows how to make all of those adjustments? I see how they can change toe but how about the rest?

Hey Dusttt, for our parkinglot tracks the first thing to do is put on a chassis protective sheet, it will save you a chassis every couple of months. I'll see you next weekend at DHW.

By adding and / or removing washers you can change toe, squat, width, roll-center.

It's a must to have I would say, with plastic blocks it's very hard to really dial on your car because you are very limited on what's you can change in your setup.

Not Really. What can't you do with plastic blocks? I bet you'd be surprised what small details can net you in setup changes.

Well in your opinon, but the UK team use the plastic blocks to great effect.....so there not a must have, they where designed for the best all round position, and knowing they are , it leaves you with being able to concentrate in other area's of the car. Must admit i did have my doubts about not being able to have options, but now i dont.
