Default TC Euros setup?

Hi, can somebody post the set-up of David Spashett and/or Hubert Hönigl from the EFRA TC Euro finals? What special parts did they use in their cars?

I saw them being used at the nats a couple of weeks ago. I looked at Horizon's Distributor page and it isn't listed as of yet.

does anyone have the Niftech cvd's for the xxxs. If so, are they good quality products and worth the price and what is the weight of them.

I've taken 3mm off the front and rear pivot blocks to lower the roll-center. I haven't driven the car yet but what handling differences should I expect?
Also, if anyone is interested, a UK mag has printed up the set-ups of three of the Losi team drivers. One is foam on carpet, one is rubber on carpet and the other is rubber on asphalt. If anyone would like me to put them up here just ask
They are all race winning set-ups

won't that rise the roll center by cutting the pivot block??
i think to get low roll center you should put some spacers between the pivot block and the chassis.....

I thought that lowering the hinge-pin and the pivot point would lower the roll-center?

Troy, they are British drivers' set-ups, Andy Moore, Glenn Doman and Westley Payne (I doubt you know them )
