black+0 on a setup sheet means the driver is using an associated black ballstud with no washer/spacers beneath it on the steering knuckle.

Usually you want to adjust the height of your steering link to have zero bumpsteer.
so on the steering knuckle where the two holes are a & b hole underneath there is a ballstud is where u do or dont put a washer.

what do u mean adjust the height on the steering link to have zero bumpsteer thanks mate for helping me

i will have to order the gear diff as i have no luck with ball diffs...some of my issues with them are self inflicted as i tend to overpower all of my rc's and drive them accordingly....

A gear diff is not a "cure all" if your ball diff assembly and tuning skills or maintenance routine are not up to par. They handle differently on the track, and come with their own set of set up issues, tuning options, and maintenance problems.

Being an onroad noob, I still don't grasp the idea why gear diffs are preferred. As an offroader, I prefer the ball diffs in 2WD applications.

maybe i should be more specific, i guess the issues i have had with the ball diff in my blitz ese have made me leery of them. i actually have not had any issues with the one in my tc6 and i run a more powerful motor then most because i bash on parking lots.....

New kit? No new kit has been mentioned other than the fact that one is on the designers desks. Thats not surprising though. They are always working on new designs. When a new model is released they are already looking at what to do next.

I wouldnt expect a new kit for at least another year or more.

Default Sorry if it is a repeat

I am sure this has been covered, but I never have luck with the searches. I am looking for a good starting setup for 17.5 NB on carpet. It is a medium grip, new last year CRC carpet. The only carpet setups I am seeming to find is for Mod. Hopefully it will carry over to IIC too.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Anyone have any trouble with the turnbuckle eyelet on the front camber link rubbing on rim if using more than 1mm shim with long ballstud? Noticed on some setup they run 2mm with long ballstud on the caster block but i tried it and the rim hits the eyelet when turned. Is there a way to fix this?

I'm running 2mm on outer ball and have not noticed eyelet rubbing on the wheel. I will double check to see if i'm using a long ballstud when I get home. Though, I do believe it is really close. Maybe your ballstud pulled out a little. I know I did have to get the 10mm thread length ballstud because when I initially used 2mm washer I had the stock ballstud pull out of the caster block.
