I do it because I have 2 ARC sedan and I have anough spare suspension block to do the switch

and I do the switch because I really dont like the MTS, Xray, associated suspension block system with plastic insert...

the down side if you want change the toe in/out you need change the block for a narrower or wider for +-10$us but its more solid and smooth than plastic shims !

If you change you need 8 ARC steel ball 5mm http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=7607

for the MTS suspension block you can buy ARC roll center shims (0.3 0.5 and 1mm ) they fit perfect and they are more easy to find !

Next step = ARC spool fit test !

Tamiya roll center shims fit too. What's funny is I ordered the MTS rear suspension holder for my vbc D07.

Same as my Xray and my VBC. Most TC have it that way nowadays.

Yeah it does look different for sure.. I still need to come out one Tuesday to see that FWD car go.. Have you tried out the USGT tires yet? I still need to figure out if I am going to get a new TC this year or just run 12th and USGT..
