thanks. i use this to drift so no race/legality issues for me.

i didn't use counter-sunk screws as i haven't figured out a good way to make neat counter-sunk "V-shaped" grooves on the bottom of the chassis . any recommendations?

was thinking about using a dremel but i'd think it's gonna be rather hard to get the right angle of the groove by hand?

$8 bucks at Amazon.

Irwin Countersink Bit

When I don't have a countersink bit I just use a regular large metal drill bit to create the countersink. The angle isn't perfect but it is better than no countersink.

Just a quick question for those of you using XRay steering blocks.

Are the bearings the same size or will I need to buy them too?

Thanks

The bearings are the same size. You will need a .020-.025 washer to make up the difference in height to get a good fit in the c-block.

Regarding using a countersink to countersink the chassis, you might want to invest in a 1/4" carbide countersink (which is sufficient for 3mm screws). It definately won't cost 8 dollars (probably about 3x as much) but it will last much much much longer than a steel countersink. A steel countersink wont last long at all, plus its very annoying to use when its partially dulled. Graphite just dulls it soo fast its ridiculous.
