So I did ask this once before without any replies, so I'm going to ask again. What does going to the 0-deg steering block do to the handling? I would like to know before I spend that kind of $$$ and then find out I really didn't need them.

Thanks for any help.

To us, the 0-deg steering blocks give you a little more steering but we also feel it makes the car smoother and more consistent. The corners feel more 'round'.

Agreed with Desoto, the steering feels smoother and you get a bit more steering out of it. I started with the O-deg blocks and have since added the 10deg aluminum caster blocks and the Aluminum servo saver. The Aluminum Caster blocks with the 0-deg Blocks unlock the true potential of the steering on this car and you'll be shocked at how much this car can turn in. I also noticed a increase in smoothness when I went to the Aluminum Servo Saver set.

Here are the parts I recently got on top of the 0-deg blocks

Hope this info helps!

Coo, Richie Siriano wheeling GT !! Love to see that next time I'm on the east coast.........

Seeing juniors coment about rounding out the corner really made me happy that I bought the 10 deg blocks as I could not tune out the pointiness of the corner, I'd always feel it tip in when I didn't want it to.

Joaquin Desoto Jr used the new top .12 engine at blue Diamond and it look really good on the track!!
Very smooth and a lot of power out of that engine.
I'll be trying my Top motor next Week...

Little helps please chaps: the V2 diff gears run without shims behind the spider gears, true/false. Then does the shim over the o-ring remain ??

My front diff seized today, haven't figured the cause yet.

Got them ali knuckles on and the corners now have apex instead of points !! Cool feeling, doesnt punish the tyres so much......

Right on Jacko no shims over the O-rings will do the trick. No shims behind any of the spider gears and the V2 are smooth like no other.

I'm really liking the V2 diffs cant touch them for smoothness!
