Hi Guy
I believe the first XXX-S stock hing pin holder is .150 higher than MF hop up pin holder...The XXX-S GP s/b half way higher than MF pin holder.

ova, you are right, the original the matt francis blocks (without any spacers) are .150 shorter than the original xxx-s standard blocks. In most cases I run minimum .060 shims underneath them otherwise the car is mega twitchy.

The mid roll center that comes in the g-plus kit is only .075 shorter than original xxx-s roll center block. The car seems to run best between .060 and .090 depending on how hooked up you are.

I agree with the measurements; however, I am not finding my car to be twitchy on asphalt with only the mf blocks and no spacers.

See, we don't need the string originator to learn something...

xxx-S bill, well that makes me jealous because what that means is that you are running on a high traction surface and your car is hooked up! Our track is in a parking lot on concrete and it's not permanent so we don't have enough traction, but that may change this spring, we are very close to securing a new location!
