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

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
