Hi.

You can angle the suspension - either on the tower or on the wishbone. There are two holes on each side of the wishbone, but they are not equal. By twisting the wishbone you have 4 different holes to adjust the lower mount of the suspension. They are named 1 to 4. When you build the car, you have to take care of correct twisting the wishbones. Otherwise you have different angled suspensions.

Moving the shock position on the arm also changes the amount of leverage that is put on the shock.
Changing on the tower changes just the angle, changing on the arm alters both angle and amount of leverage.

Out on the arm in effect stiffens the suspension, as there is less of a lever for the arm to act on (lower shock position to outer arm pivot). Going in makes it softer (more of a lever).

With the angle, more upright makes the shock more linear, more angled makes it more progressive (stiffens up more as the suspension compresses).

I believe the HPI spring is 6543 (silver).

Tower shows mid April for stock, but HPI has been pushing back all of it's " in stock" dates . Stuffs coming from Japan and we all know how that is going right now!

Quick question: When using the split-blocks (in the front), are they the same height as the stock blocks, or do i need to use different size shim to get the same result?

Hi, just thought I could help here, using 0mm under the split blocks is the same as using 3mm under the flipped standard block.

I was wondering if there is a recommended length for the front and rear sway bar links that connect from the lower arm to the sway bar.

thanks

I've noticed that my spec-r gear diff can move up to 2mm side to side in the bulkheads which makes the belt rub the servo holder and ariel. Does everyone else get this? What type of shims should I use to sort it? Or should I just use a massive washer?

I just got done building my Tamiya TRF417, and I took it for a couple of laps (to see if it was working). This thing has amazing steering! I had an Xray T2 '009, but it had nowhere near as much steering.

Going to race it this weekend - really looking forward to it!
