Default LCG question.

I recently got from a friend a Very Good condition LCG which has only ever been used in-doors on carpet.
Having been an xray user for the last 5 years an only racing 13.5 I felt a good quality shafty was the why forward still.
My question is; are the BD wish-bones the same as LCG ones? Same goes for C-hubs and caster blocks?
Also, can anyone suggest any advantages when using the narrower front wish-bones?

Regards,
Richard.

Default foam setup

foam setup
try a base setup
60 oil - front
40 -45 - rear
stiffer spring in front - 24 lbs or greater
softer spring in rear 20 lbs or greater
front droop +1 over ride
rear droop + 1.5 over ride height
front diff = med
rear diff = med
front toe 0
front ride height = 4.5
rear ride height = 4.5

try to start from there and change as needed and you should be able to get the car to handle nicely.

the only thing you might need to do is shave a bit from the inside of the foam tire, otherwise they might rub against the shock bottom.
