I also have the smokem chassis but have not managed to test it yet.
I chose to install the original HB narrow chassis first to use as a bench mark.
Stock wide chassis was pretty good to be fair.
This is my latest installation:

Make sure you check for bent hinge pins and suspension blocks as well. I've found that can make the toe a little funky if they are slightly bent or tweaked.

Hope that helps!

mine measure 2.5 degress with a 3 degree rear block. I guess I should be happy that they're both the same !

Personally I liked the 1 or the 1.5 better as they seemed to finish the corner better than the 0 block on a small indoor carpet track. Much more sweep than that and it seemed not to want to turn in for me.

Thanks Art!
Ran the car with std blocks, i felt it little aggressive. With 0 is totally different, it seems she wanna go to sleep.
Gonna try +1 FR block with std FF block and see what happens but i will try 1.5 in std FR block.
Thank you!

Other drivers?

FF 1.5 + std FR block is a good compromise on asphalt and moquette.
Sometimes I had to put FF 1.5 + FR 1.5 on moquette (to get a car less aggressive) and sometimes on asphalt I put FF 2.0 + std FR to have a car more aggressive.

In very tight track (moquette) I used Hara set up with FF 2.0 + std FR , the car is aggressive but it's necessary to get fast speed corner.
Hope this will help.
Ciao!
