I tried to use the F block in the rear, but the holes didn't line up. The F block was too narrow for the drop in holes in the rear bumper, so I had to mill the inside of the posts on the F block to get it to drop in. I felt that I couldn't get them lined up properly and still have even toe from left to right. It was much easier to to use the R+2 block and the Losi 1 deg hubs reversed. Plus, I think my stock hubs weren't quite straight either.

Dingus: The "F" block goes in front of the rear transmission. It does not go behind the transmission with the bumper. The combination of "F" and "R 2 + 2" gives you about 1 deg. toe-in and 2 deg anti-squat.

Guess that's why it didn't work for the rear. The one I milled was for the front of the car. I really like the setup I have now though. The Losi rear hubs allow for more camber link adjustments (2) and a vertical ballstud.

An F block in the rear w/ 2+2 gives you 0* anti squat and 0* rear toe. If you run a 2+0 you will have pro-squat which will take away even more rear traction, and it wont be as consistent upon acceleration. pro-squat would work best w/ foam on carpet but not recomended for other situations. you can also get pro-squat in the front by shimming the F-block.

2 degrees toe in with about 2 degrees pro squat.

I really liked the losi hubs on the back when I ran the NW carpet champs in stockton. They seemed to keep the car from parking in the middle of the corner.

I forgot to mention you need a .030-.035 spacer under the "F" block to maintain the proper anti-squat.

Being a diehard Associated fan.... I have to say the FT TC3. But since I have only one opinion, I'll probably hear from the rest of the nuts out there.
