I have multiple versions, with the front piece for a bit stiffer car, withous for more flex. Depends on track and grip.

they will work, with a bit difference in steering throw. Hold them next to each other and you will see what I mean.

Here is the one for the rear of the Lazer ZX5(FS) series: http://www.petitrc.com/setup/kyosho/...Sus_Holder.pdf
There is a P/N from the TF5, so hope should be good for the TF6 series.

The C-blocks > out, are for your front suspension arms. For the rear you can try every option there is ;-) determine your trackwide and your toe-in, and go from there ;-)

Ok that makes more sense ...will do ......thanks!....but what im trying to figure out is what you are using for front fronts and front rears.....are you keeping at a neutral 0 or are you guys giving it some toe out or arm sweep?
