He does good work. I've been using him for the last 4 years.

I want to widen the front end just a tad. I ordered some C blocks. Does anyone know how much each letter block is wider than the previous?

Thanks

Professor, that gt40 body is with stock blocks? Nothing widened? I got rid of my gt40 bodys when I had my ARC. The wheels where way to tucked in for my liking. Looked kind of funny. Looks good tho on the Exo.

Perfect. Exactly what I need. Thanks

I'm not trying to widen to fit the wheel wells. This car has a lot of initial turn in. I am trying to slow the reaction down and I know widening the trek width from the hindg episode blocks is one way of doing that. I just wants to know how much I was widening by. I found a chart on exoteks website. I just need to wait until they have some d blocks available. C blocks only widen track witch by .75mm total. It might be enough. But d blocks will widen the car by .75mm each side.

Have you considered softer front springs ?
I found that calmed this car down considerably at our track

I'm driving the C at the front in all of my cars.
Still need to work on the setup of my EXO 6 as it was a bit lazy on the turn in.
But drove it for the first time last weekend.

Softer front springs? I thought that would cause more weight transfer to front on braking causing the front to dig harder?

I have gone to a heavier weight front shock fluid to try next time out, I'm also going to try saucing only the inside half of the front tires. I know this is a tuning option, but I really don't like doing it as I'm not consistent enough with saucing just "half." I am also going to play with droop some more. But don't want to go too far with it.

+2 on softer springs. I just went softer in front from Pink to Silver and it was money. Turn in was much more controllable. Running C Blocks. Silver HPI's all around.

Already have few setups in mind for the next training.
We're driving indoor in this time of the year, high grip carpet.

That will increase the track width by 0.5mm not 1mm

Each block is 0.5mm different. As you have just gone up 1 block higher for front and rear blocks you have kept the same toe in value, but just increased track width by 0.5mm

For 1 mm you would need to go from (XB : D) to (X : F).

I cannot speak for the Box version of the Evo but the Evo 6 with Exotek conversion is the best car I have ever owned (and believe me, I have owned a ton!)

It is very responsive to tuning changes and produces a TON of grip.

Are you looking at a box stock Evo or are you considering the Exotek conversion as well?

I just got the exo conversion and got it together. The Evo was good as well. Can only imagine with the conversion. I'm coming from off-road and have been through 2 touring platforms that I wasn't thrilled with. This one looks promising I just wish it had the adjustable suspension brackets with the inserts like some other cars.

Actually from letter A to letter B is .5mm difference A to C is 1mm difference. Or B to C is .5mm difference. It's always been this way
