Interesting, I am going to work on setting my fans up. I have two that I want to work on there and I am just brainstorming some possible ways.

Work, what's that?

Here's my setup from this past weekend at Horsham. In no way is it my final setup. I am still working on the car as there are a ton of things to try yet.

Hey Schreff, what did running the T2 blocks give you?

T2 steering blocks fix a couple issues...

#1 - They change ackerman for the better.
#2 - The steering throw is better and the servo saver doesn't end up hitting the turnbuckle.
#3 - There is less offset in the bearings in the hubs.

To put T2 steering blocks on the car, you need T2 caster block bushings, and you need to put an XRay rod end on the front camber link that attaches to the caster block. You will then use a 3x12mm BH screw to attach it. No more ball end. You also need to shim the steering block a little inside the caster block. I did a little trimming myself to use a 2mm shim. That way I can raise or lower the steering block as I see fit. At this time, the 2mm spacer is on top of the steering block. Also, as in my setup sheet, there is an additional 2mm spacer on top of the caster block, which is under the camber link. Just like how XRay does theirs. I might takes those out or go to 1mm has the car did have a little too much roll.

It's getting there though. The car was smoooooth.

Lata,

Schreff

Schreff,

Did you use the three hole or two hole steering blocks?
Do you think horsham has them in stock?

Can you post up a pic of this mod? Is this something more for the rug you think?

Jon, if you want a pic, Williams' photos above have T2 blocks on the car. You can see most of what you need there. I will try to take pics with the wheels off the front to show the differences.

As far as it only helping on carpet, I'm not sure. I'm not an asphalt guy. Heck, I haven't run on rubber tires in over 3 years.

That would be better addressed by Pdub.

You can also use HPI pro4 or Cyclone ones as well.

I've got some Cyclone one's from when I put the rear hubs on the old car with the BMI "Vegas" chassis. I'll take a look at them and see how they'll work. Might as well, the car's in about 20 pieces waiting for a new chassis.
