R2 and R3 block please explan
The R3 rear block has the hingepin hole spaced closer to the wheel axle. It makes the arm almost parallel to the dogbone. I added spacers under the rear arm mounts to give more midcorner steering, but the R3 blocks negated that change!

Are we talking about the same thing ? does R3 have the hingepin hole for A-arm?

Hi everyone

I have been using the spool now for more than a month on my R2 (speedway pal convertion) and i found it that more steering on power out of the corners is increased.The spool is made of aluminium with the one-way diff cups press fitted into the spool and weights 17g. 3g less than the one-way.the diff cups shafts are triangle formed and pressed into the spool to form a solid bonding.The track we race here in Malta is not a high traction track , infact it's very low traction but i managed to find a setup for the car.

front oil 50w
front springs yokomo blue
rear oil 30w
rear springs yokomo blue
rear toe-in 2.5
front toe-in 0
front camber 1.0
rear camber 1.5
i was going to change the front oil to 30w for more front traction.When i try it i let you know guys.

Regards
Henry

Ova,
I was referring to the outer hingepin hole. For the R3 rear blocks: imagine an R2 rear upright. Take the hingepin hole and move it up a couple of mm's.

Nice- is this something you machined for yourself? Sounds similar to an idea I was toying with

Hi Mike

This idea was created from me and my friend who race in mod. class.I race in super stock class.I was going to do it myself at my workshop but i hav'nt got the tools to shape the inner part for press fit the diff cups so we decided to make at an engineering shop who he also is a friend of ours.we made the ends metal because in mod class there will be a lot of stress on the spool ends and if they are alum. they will be damaged.You can make it full aluminium but you have to use the plastic covers on the shafts like the x-ray uses.
