Hey Damien the reason i use 2 1.5 blocks in the front is to eliminate the arm sweep and 2 1.5 blocks to get the width pretty cloe to 190 mm i think its actually 189mm if you use 2 0 blocks the width of the front end was only 186 that would make the car really hard to drive

Did this give or take away steering?

Are you running any different parts on those shocks?... eg: HPI lower collars etc, just wondering how you went making ride height with HPI springs???

I just mounted up my set of TRF shocks to my scythe, trying to get some pics to post, but i found them better. I just wasnt sure my set of HPI springs would fit comfortably.

Also, have you played with rear toe settings much???... a couple of Scythe guys here have commented that reducing the rear toe-in unsettles the car too much and it doesnt respond all that well, obviously dependent on track condition, and whilst im waiting for my set of blocks to come i though it ask if any of you guys could expand on that.

Cheers,

Robbie
