Hello Rick

i have seen many racers using the steering arms like the TC5 ie: ball stud on top rather than under like the TC6 manual, did you find a big difference and why changing this, and do you yourself use this.

I only did it this way because everyone else was and this is how we ran the prototype. I have not tried it the way it is supposed to be in the manual.

Hi Rick

It would be good to mention it on your setup sheets, obliviously someone using your setup on an inverted steering arm mount won't find it good I guess.I will have to try it myself.

Thank you

Interesting. Your running without anti-roll bars as well?

What do you notice the car does with that set up ?
Does it fix a problem you had before ?
Thanks.

seems to let the rear roll more just like the feel with the diffs set in that position very comfortable to drive fast

I keep stripping my steer blocks. How do I correct this? It seems like the front right one is always stripping. This causes me to lose a C blade and then will cause a worn outdrive. I am using the regular hard blocks.
