Thanks Alan
i fitted a 82t 48dp kawada. have to file the bottom chassis very very slightly as it touches very very slightly. if u dont want to file, go with a 80t. fits perfect.

An angle on the front arms, backwards or forwards. If you use same same blocks, like D-D, you have 0 degree angle on the arms. If you use different size blocks, you get an angle on the arms, hence the word "arm sweep"

Front arm sweep directly affects toe angle but it's considered inboard toe. Changing a mount affects inboard toe where as changing something like a rear hub to a 1 degree hub changes outboard toe

The effects are where things get cloudy for me. I've never actually tested to see the effects on the entry, middle and exit of a turn. It's my understanding that more arm sweep will make the car a little more aggressive entering a turn. Perhaps someone else on this thread can give more specifics

just to clarify, the reversible short arm is used both front and rear of the car right (or do we only change the front/rear)? i just ordered 2 sets to try out...

How are you guys gearing your TRF416 with the standard spur?

With a 19T orion V2 element
With a 23T Tamiya TZ

Thanks in advance!

Best recommendation I can give is that you test both. You may have personal preferences, one likes this and another that....
