Alternatively you could use a normal 0 degree castor block and insert shims under the front arm bracket to achieve castor.

that's the thing though, the only castor block offered is the 4 degree one.

On the Rayspeed Chassis we run Yokomo Long type ball studs which will make the front camber links more horizontal. Part # ZC-206L.

i'm talking about the other end of the dog bone. where it connects to the axle, not where it rides in the outdrives

Honestly the RS chassis isn't the best for foam carpet racing, but if you do run it I suggest doubling the topdecks to make the car stiffer. Tosolini's carpet nats setup is posted on www.yokomo.tk

So far so good. I've been running on concrete pavement parking lot temporary track and high traction asphalt circuit tracks. No tweak problem, even after a hard knock. Haven't try a carpet track yet. No one organiser doing carpet race for a long while now.

Thanks, same to you. We are looking forward to the trip. I went by the track last week on the way back from Vegas and it is a pretty nice track. It should be a lot of fun.

It's better than the SSG and RS but still needs two upper decks to stiffen it up. The CGM is the way to go on carpet with foamies.
