I installed the flow and am playing with some gearing and a few roll centers to make the car even better! I need to clean up my transponder wiring.

For you guys who have been running this car for a while ...is it necessary to get all the optional suspension blocks...split and solid?.....I only ever run 2.0 -2.5 rear toe and I usually like a half degree to 1 degree of arm sweep up front ...what I'm getting at is whats working for you guys and what's suggested ...rather then buying them all and only using half of them .....thanks .

Lately I've been liking 3 degrees of rear toe with less camber to help the car rotate. I'm going to be doing more testing today.

is everyone using the black diaphragm vs the kit blue ones? and why?
also are you guys using the sponge bushing between the diaphragm and shock cap?

Ive just been comparing the current setups people are using for carpet and noticed they all use black diaphragms.

thx
Chris.

I'm using the stock blue diaphragm and they works great..the black diaphragm is alittle harder and they last longer

KO RSx One10. Love it.

My car was fast and easy to drive last night. That's a dangerous combo.

Overall what are your thoughts on the car? Have you driven a t4 yet to compare? I just switched from the 2012 to the t4 because I have a huge amount of Xray spares I just couldn't pull the trigger on the Yok!

I've driven both and I like both, but I still prefer my yoko.

T4 is easier to drive and turn. But BD7 could be faster with more initial steering. Haven't timed it yet. BD7 definitely faster for me than T3 though.

Re: Servo I prefer the Futaba BLS551 for better centering and reliability
