W'sup- K
Think they were reffering to front 8d caster.

This is what I ran for that temprature
Base set-up for my car....
Sorex 36r echo red insert (100f track temp)
1.5camber all corners
8 front caster
45wt oil #2 pistons all corners
serpent orange front spring/ back spring ? (pulled from my parts box- slightly softer than front) Had a med (not soft not hard) feel that felt equal front to back (sorry if vague)
4.5mm ride hieght
no one-way
no top plate
High roll center in back
High roll center in front
Lower holes for outside pins
1-2-9 block in rear- 0 rear toe hubs

The track was a little dusty in the first few rounds but came alive in the main.
I usually run this same set-up at all tracks and just change tires for the weather or change the rear shock angle or add oneways- works really well for me.

you have to replace the C-hubs on the pro3 they are marked now if you already have the 2-deg front kick up in then you add that to the other number that is on the caster block to get the correct caster deg. like if you have 8 deg front caster blocks and 2 deg kick up then you have a total of 10deg caster.

Woven narrow graphite chassis. avialable from RcModel in HK.
http://shopping.rcmodel.com.hk/eshopping/default.htm

also get the new 3 or 4 degree C-blocks. you will be able to exit corners alot faster. I have 1 set of 4deg. C-blocks to sell if you're interested. let me know by friday.. goes into auction on monday.

It was released about a month or 2 ago. Just 3 and 4 degrees are released. Most of the HS in HK are out of stock on the new C-hubs. They expect more in by mid-end of April. Asking $10.00 shipped.

Don't know who makes the chassis. Looks like a great copy of the Kai chassis that had limited released last year.

alright 10 bucks shipped. do you have email or anything. i think i might either get the penguin chassis or that narrow carbon graphite one plus some other hop ups from rcmodel do you know what the average shipping is from there or is it calculated individually on weight. thx

email me at [email protected]
you can use that address for PayPal also.

It cost around $10.00 for registered airmail from HK just for the chassis. $15.00 EMS priority. 3-4 day delivery air is 7-10days.
Shipping is based on weight.

Personally I think the Narrow chassis is better. The HB narrow chassis is very similar in design but won't be released til May or June.
