yup those were the parts that I posted and no problem so far with the stock blocks.

I did have the same problem with the initial build of the diff with the stock dog bones. I made a mistake of switching the diff joint.

fresh out of the battle I used an old evo wrc body with my custom ralliart decal in chrome red/orange, enkei, alpine star, yellow lights, took out the rear spoiler.

Wide offset for the front for the FWD Street Dragster look

somehow it turns in and exits better on corners. I also have 0 droop in the front. Notice my front grill for more airflow to the motor

Yes it did work well with stock setup but i did add 3 mm spacer to increase the roll center on a bumpy track. You can still lower the car with regular tires the tamiya radial wheels are larger than normal.

Maybe you are racing with the body on backwards?
