What are the toe in settings for each block? I didn't see it listed in the book.

BD I was going between both bodies the Alfa and the Stratus. I ended up with the Stratus the car was just freer through the turns. As far as the balance it is not so much loosening up the rear it is a better balanc my car felt like it was steering from the back of the car and the front was turning a wider radius than the front. With the changes the front carried a similar arc and the numbness was gone.

How are the HPI clamp on hexes different from stock?

ISn't 200mm too wide? I thought the max width was 190mm.

I will try to find you at Cleveland. I will be easy to find. I am part of the CRC crew. Just ask for Dumper.
200mm...opps! I meant 190mm.

The Hpi clamps are 6mm thick instead of the 4mm stockers. Any 6mm clamps that fit will work.

I did forget to mention I run the "D" (front)and "B"(rear) blocks in the rear to get 1 drgree of toe.

Rear toe--This is with an "A" block in the front of the rear.
A=2 degrees
B=2.5 degress
C=3.0 degrees
D=3.5 degrees

Now the rear hubs on the Surikan are 2 degrees out of the box. Which is figured in above. The degrees are listed in the manual when you're building the rear mounts.

Downforce-Thank you very much again. I must have missed the block listing. I am very excited to try this as it is alot different from where I am. My setup came from a TC3 setup sheet. I was afraid you guys would say my setup was good, then I would be scratching my head!!

I am dampened too heavy, sprung too heavy, and have too much droop.

I forgot to mention I am running a Stratus 2.0 body.

I will have to get those HPI 6mm clamps.

Let me buy you a beer in Cleveland!

i think graphite prop would be lighter.
it really all depends on the manufactuer.
the would be nothing in it anyway.only a few ounces probably.

by far the heviest will be the 3piece prop.
3 pieces are heaveyer then one plus the have pins and rubber 0 rings.

Devil, a light 1-way is in the works from a friend I have seen the proto's and they look sweet. Same design as the spools that he made for us and quite a few of the guys here. They have the large backing plate. I think Jurgen' s 1-way is pretty light also but I have not seen one in person.

for those who haven´t seen Jürgen´s custom oneway here´s a link for a short report http://www.swebs.dk/articles.html

weight is about 25 gramms including onewaygear and outdrives. Maybe you could make a even lighter one but it won´t be that strong.
