Toe blocks that add toe shorten the wheelbase, hubs don't. Something to consider.

You are right, they do. I usually run short wheelbase on a loose track anyway, but that is something to remember.

That is the right name. Maybe he deleted his account for some reason.

You can pm him or email him from hobbytalk though:

getting my T4 ready for a comeback after being a shelf queen for over a year. What is with all the limiters in the front? I have been in TC mode forever, is this a way of changing droop. I only plan on running 17.5 do you really need all the limiters?

I've just been running mine stock and it seems good, TQ'd the other night and ran 2 identical qualifiers... 24 6:12's both times. The car is pretty dialed right now. The only thing I've changed in the last couple weeks is unscrewed the shocks 2 turns.... I'm still running the limiters listed on the CRCRC soft setup, but it picked up some much needed sidebite when I unscrewed them.

What length would be "nuetral" measured on the shock? one persons length could be 1-2mm different than the next guy, do you measure the length somewhere on the shock everytime you build them Bridgewater?
I'm not sure of my actual shock length, But I always thread the shock on to a certain point of the shaft. I will measure the shocks and get back to you on this.

As for making ride height, like cherry mentioned. I use the B44 spring cups on the bottom and run the threaded collar upside down to get the height. If this still isn't enough, use a second shock collar on the normal direction and the flipped one will become a spacer.

The extra down travel you added should give the car a much more lazy feeling, like driving an old boat style cadillac. Which most times will feel like more grip, due to the car being more managable.


The pistons are losi orange 55 and black 57. I haven't taken tiime to drill the AE blanks, but I will do this next time I'm at the track.

Chedda Bob.... I found this

******B4/T4 users look inside!!! 4* toe rear squat blocks******
Views: 4,160 Posted By chedda bob
sorry, but there are no more blocks available nor...

sorry, but there are no more blocks available nor will there be any time soon. i was let go from the shop.

sorry to anyone that is interested but please no more pm's on these



I wasn't interested in adding toe inboard, I was wondering if he was making a steel 0/0 block.... As I am in the process of manufacturing a brass one, as well as a brass front pivot and hine pin brace. I'm tired of weight coming loose and overall looking like crap. I'm also getting a few Losi front pivots done up....

Yes it is pretty much adjusting droop. You could experiment and see what works for you.

Darn, didnt know he didnt have them anymore.

I have the capability to make some, guess i will have to tool up! I should be able to make 0/0 steel ones too.

Are you drilling the losi pistons? And what does using losi pistons change with the cars handling?
