More than likely since they haven't been filled in it could be the center dot (•)

Thats been a well known fact since the release of the T413. Annoying that Xray refuse to include it with the 14 as standard though.

A quick and cheap solution is to flip over the upper bumper plastic piece and put 4-5mm of shims under it where it bolts to the lower piece (so that the plastic touches the bulkhead). You may need to use longer screws. It isn't the prettiest option but I've ran mine like that for awhile.

You're correct, that part of that sheet is a mistake.
To be anything other than the centre dot of those diagrams, it MUST be either 0.5 or 1 blocks.

As you only usually have 0.5 difference in the blocks to make arm sweep, I think the FF blocks should be 0.5's

I take it that's Hagberg's Sorex sheet? If so, everyone I know has taken it as 0.5 blocks.

I tried hagbergs ETS setup and his setup from the charity race in Italy with ride Rex 30 tires (new control tire for us).

The ETS setup was super aggressive with tons of steering, but it wasn't stable in a few parts of the track. Mainly in the chicane it was bad. Softer front oil and a harder rear roll bar would have probably solved that, but I didn't tried that since I also wanted to test the other setup.

The other one is basically the same as his sorex setup and was super stable. In some parts of the track it pushed a little during mid corner. This setup was the easiest to drive but I'm not sure if it was faster.

picking up your car from the front bumper is what stresses the front of the chassis. All the weight of the car is on those 3 screws. Mine cracked in my hand i felt it, i did not hit anything hard my first 3 runs.

I have a real bad habit of picking up the car from the front bumper, it has stopped

Still running the same chassis and i have had some serious Tbone incidents, the chassis still lives. I used shims to raise the plastic like the above post, works like a charm. I'm not impressed with the quality of screws used on this kit, it's to bad the quality is slipping. The car though on track AMAZING :P

I have always felt their screws were pretty bad. I have started using the 12.9 from www.hexcrews.com on the bottom of my last 3 kits and have had no stripped screws since. Prior to using these I have always had stripped screws and needed to drill them out.

Use Torx screws, problems solved
