You can see the steering blocks on the pic of his car on this page: http://www.cmldistribution.co.uk/new...iew=0000000187
Basically, a hole has been drilled right in front of the std holes on the steering blocks, and the the special steering rack is further forward sot hat when the links are in this position, they are perfectly parellel, i.e at 90* to the chassis. I was told this is to achieve more lock. The hpi c-hubs seemed a straight fit too me
As a close personal friend and team mate of Chris's he sent me the following pic of the steering arrangement on his car.
As you can see he ran old style MR4TC castor blocks, the balljoint drilled 4mm closer to kingpin and used the ackerman plate produced for the Japanese Nationals which has holes further forward. Also a 0.5 mm shim to reduce the lock slightly to minimise the wheel wobble and chatter when they are cranked over so much.
