Ive been using the blocks for years, but the easiest way I do it now.

1. Set your ride height first, chassis is race ready.
2. Take off your wheels and lay it flat on your setup board.
3. Take a small ruler and measure from the setup board to the center of the hinge pin.

Put your wheels back on and check how many mm does the chassis lift. Depending on the surface you race on up travel is usually 1-3mm.

So when you are looking at the setup sheets for example if the front says 9mm, they are measuring from the setup board to the center of the hinge pin.

Remember if you change your ride height to another setting afterwards your droop settings need to change also.

Hey Goots,

I used the carpet set up you gave me and the tcxx handles really good. Thanks Brotha.

Follow it exactly and adjust a little bit to get more rear bite to suit my driving style

OK. Had my first run of my new TCXX. Had some initial problems. I was running V1 dcj's and one broke. I see the new V2's are rebuildable. I asked around the pits to see what other brands dcj would fit but I could not seem to find any. The TCXX shaft [part that goes through bearings and knuckle] seemed to be longer. May I ask what other brands fit until the arrival of the the upgrade kit. Thanks

I got a pair of Tamiya ones off my mate and measured the length and the pin hole that holds the hex on was different length compared to the V1 TCXX ones. The Tamiya one being shorter in length.

You have to run a different bearing. TCXX uses two 5x10x4 bearings. You need to change the inner bearing to a 5x10x3 for the Tamiyas to fit.
