Jason - What about the roll center shims under the 1.5 front blocks and 0/3mm rear blocks.

I see.

Also when you say US top deck does that mean it's for the CFP kit or is it for use with the regular bulkheads?

Hey Guys,

A couple of quick questions for you, and i apologise for picking your brains excessively, but theres a couple of things i really cant get my head around in regards to set-up.

Can anyone explain to me the effects of raising the lower toe blocks???... eg going from 0.5mm all around to 1.0mm all around or vice versa.

I understand kick-up and anti-dive/squat and all that... but in terms of just raising or lowering the whole lot im still confused.

And aswell as that... i dont get shimming the steering links or ackerman links... eg: adding 1mm under the ball studs etc.

Again i apologise for asking such an involved question but whilst my scythe just keeps getting better and better... i feel there is a lot still to be unlocked in the car that i just dont understand...I've been doing a few testing days just to try things but im making slow progress.

Cheers, all help is greatly appreciated

Robbie
