Dunno what your running front/rear then but at the rear/front it would be 1XA.
Some of the split blocks you can swap from left to right to get a different angle.
You won't get this with the one piece blocks.
Just dismount one and see what you got.

Default Split blocks

Quick question....when using the split blocks, what are people using as spacers.

I saw a blog with pictures of the new 417X and it looked like he had small spacers under each split block.

Does Tamiya make these? or are they aftermarket?

Thanks Greg G

Personally, I just use the same spacers as for the wheelbase and camber links... I think the Kentech blog you saw, he was running cut down standard suspension block shims.

Finally, I found a solution to premature wear in diff caps. I know blades are a consumable, but not in two runs with new diff cups.

You need: mini drill, damaged diff cups, associated 3.5mm blades 31238 and 3.5mm diamond bite

First, take your damaged diff cups, a diamond bite of 3.5mm and make the groove more wider until asso blade fit good.

Second, make holes of blade little wider with a screw driver or something until move freely and put into shaft pin.

Enjoy your car for many many runs without thinking in shaft blades.

I can't put some pics because forum permissions, sorry.

It's the same on the 417, the belt can brush against the servo mount. I tried shimming the centre pulley over a little and that helps it move away.
