    1. 25/30 degree version
    2. 20 degree version
These parts will work on any AE B6 series race car -- doesn't need to be running the Willspeed RF2 conversion(s)
Considering its intended use on high grip surfaces, I think the TakeOne bulkhead should be made of brass or steel instead of aluminum.

Willspeed Will said that is an potential option

but if you think about it, steering gained w/o additional weight transfer might even be better

Just got shipping confirmation on my Preorder. Didn't know there was a USA branch, mine is coming from the UK. I cant wait to run it. I ordered some of the WS wings too.
I wished I would have known about the optional Name engraving before my order.

Congrats to DJ Cranmer for taking the win in 17.5 2wd this past weekend at The Factory RC Raceway. It was his first day every with the Willspeed RF2 conversion. Setup sheet coming soon ... And he already has a list of ideas on what to try next

we got DJ's setup sheet from the prior weekend and posted it online.
we welcome any other shared setup sheets. please include a car picture too as it might help answer questions that fellow Willspeed drivers have about your setup.

First race day with the WS.. was able to TQ + win 17.5 buggy at a local club race / Die Hard RC in Washington.

A second car setup for mod had feats of greatness but needs more setup changes plus some more driver training...

So last night I was lucky enough to try the new WS -2 mm ball stud mount (I still have my 20deg AE hinge pin block on btw)

I put this on for my second leg final and the front tyres were very worn and the car was starting to push a bit, with the new ball stud mount fitted it felt like I had new rubber on!

More turn in and steering all round and my fastest lap time with the worn fronts on the car during the whole meeting 👍🏻

Next meeting Iíll try this combined with the news HRC hinge pin block and report back

I believe these are due to be on sale anytime, be quick as these will fly off the shelf!
