I would sell it pretty cheap if someone is looking for something like that to race. I got sponsored by Serpent and haven't run the car for a while.
Spooky I run a 777 with the current shoe type GT2 trans with all the goodies too ...but I cant find any one that made a 10 deg hub or less to fix the steering on the car ! any advice ? Mike Lyday told me at the Roar Nationals last week in the Fort that he had some custom 4 deg hubs that came off a 3D printer that worked great but was too fragile : (

I have tried to get several machine shops here to make some for that car, but they never come through with them. That one fix would put that car in the mix again.

Ah yes, those were the extremely rare, elusive and magical 4 degree Ipanema C-Hubs for the IGT cars. They were made of unobtainum and only my closest “friends” got a chance to race with them.

Actually, you are both wrong. They are 6 degree hubs.

Another thing to look at that is AVAILABLE is the M2C 2520 front anti dive kit. This kit contains shims that can be put into the A block that will increase or decrease anti dive. I ran this on my car with the 3 dot down blocks which removes a lot of the angle in the pin and makes it much more parallel to the ground. This removes caster and makes the car turn in much better. This also has the added benefit of giving the rear of the car much more traction from the middle of the turn out so that that loose on throttle condition that the GT2 experiences is also dramatically improved.

You'll most likely need to plan on also changing the upper A arms to old ST arms (or the RTR neo) : these hubs were design for MP7.5 type front end whereas the ST-RR evo is like a MP777.
FYI : 'm running MP7.5 hubs on a MP777 converted to GT and had to use MP7.5 upper front A Arms because the reduced caster make the top of the hub too far forward for the MP777 stock arms. So I guess it's the same effect on the truggy.
