The low blocks are Part# E0106A & B
The high blocks are Part# E0106C & D
The blocks have the letter on them A & B are a set and C & D are a set.

I am putting on the craddock brakes and noticing they dont fit the guides on the center diff mount. Do i have the wrong ones?

If you're referring to the guides on the bottom of the diff mount that you screw on each side don't use them. The discs are wider than stock and drag on the insides of those guides. Or I suppose if you want the rigid feel cut the guide off with a dremel, but most guys I know just don't even put them on. I've used the craddocks and the TTR S3 discs and I love the braking of the S3s from Thunder Tiger. Some guys don't like them because of the rotating mass on the diff outputs.

Good luck, Chad

merf- You've got the right ones, you have to take a dremel with a cutting disc and widen the gap in those guides, just a small modification but well worth your time. Also I double my steel plates(calipers) on each side of the disc and this gives you real consistant braking throughout a long main, because with just the one caliper you can actually start to bend it in the middle.*You want double plates (no pads) remove the pads from the steel plates.

Thanks Ryan. Actaully just finished doing that. Sound like i need to get another set of calipers. I am glad to be rid of those pads though. Tha craddocks dont seem to be any heavier than the stock disks so i dont think i will notice a difference as far as rotating mass goes but i did wonder about that.

We DO race year-round...LOL...we were out at Rev tonight watching Losi buggies break.

It is damn cold though...but we're still out there.

My old Prospec just became an "R" this last week. Actually, I still need the steering turnbuckles yet, but close enough. Bring out an electric car sometime. I have three 4800 packs, so you can use one if you want...I do the 1/10th gas class with my Lazer...10 minute mains BABY...

Chad- They consider it "d@mn cold" out in Cali when they have to put their t-shirts back on!!! While we over here are using heat guns to start our motors, and running a cotton wrist ban on our engine heads to maintain temperture!! Oh well I'll be out there with them come the end of Jan. or first of Feb.
