Default Well what do ya know :)

I understand what people are saying that it's way to much droop but I assumed the people that wrote the book knew what they are doing when they say 2mm...BUT.....

Then you said about the droop ......"From the drive shaft angle, I think you have front droop#1 or#2 on the droop gauge,no one use that much front droop. The usual front droop is about #6".....

(by the way it's not even #1 on the gauge when I try to fit it underneath)

well that got me thinking, if.....

"that '"2mm" droop screw thing is good for the rear, and the front when you use the lower holes of the C-hub(99% of people use this). But the instruction calls for the upper hole, Yes I think that is a mistake in the instruction"

is correct I'll go look at the instruction book.....

And yes my instruction book says to use the lower hole in the rear but the upper hole in the front.

Now tell me if I'm wrong but putting the pin in the lower hole (like you said most ppl do) would have the same effect as turning in the droop screw 1mm that I have done to stop the binding?

And if this is correct what would be the better option 2mm and the lower hole or 3mm and the upper hole?

They are a much better design than the stock ones IMO!

use the upper hole, use the lower hole, just screw the droop screw in until you get around 4-6 mm of droop using the included droop guage that came in the kit.
btw, i know its to late but, i think you would have been better off buying the prebuilt cgm drift car, it is plastic, but it is lighter and should perform better using the m540 motor.

Those are King Pins, not hinge pins, but I agree they are a huge improvemnet over the stock ones. The stock hinge pins are pretty hard and are of good quality.

Lighter is it? bugger Oh one last droop question then as a starting point should the front and rear amounts be the same or is one usually more than the other.

If you race on a smooth surface start with 6 in the front and 5 in the rear.

I just got back from the KO grand prix and Billy Easton is already
at a pretty fast pace considering the short time he's had with the car.

he ran the silver, black, and cgm at the event.
