JoshR85 - I will be in Cleveland. No doubt about that one!!

chicky03 - I will use spacers under the F block or I will grind a little off of the F-0 and bumper. I don't usually run more than .040 (2 degrees) of anti-dive. The best thing to do is to try it and see what you think - some tracks I like it, others I don't. I haven't played with it a lot so I don't have it down to a science as to when/or not to use it....

Josh, or Barry,
I have a NTC3 and I'm having problems with striping the front ring and pinion gear out of it. But I'm using the spool in the front as well. I have tried different cases and different gears and about a thousand different shim combo's but I can't fix it. Just wondering if you have any tricks for it.

Default anti dive

Hey josh !

Ive also tried to use anti-dive on the tc3 by using the r-block instead of the f-block. (since the r-block is a litle higher than the f-block).
The only concern I have with this setup is that the r-block is a little wider than the f-block too. Therefor it gives the fornt a little "toe in" and therefor a little longer wheelbase.

I drove with this setup on my hometrack an found that the car has more front bite than with the f-block (both with 4 castor blocks)

Is it possible that the gain of front bite can come more from the longer wheelbase than from the anti-dive ?

When do you use the lower rear roll center usually ?

Thax for your answers in advance.

hey Josh about how high do you go in oil for shocks at the big events when groove is black or do you just go up in springs, or both, cause all i do really is just go up in heavier spring and it works good, should i do both or continue to do what i do???

Exactley!


do we all have to wait to find out?


another note, when you ran ae front arms in the rear, what hubs did you use(losi?). when i was running front arms in the rear it made the wheelbase very short(compaired to stock) and i see that you use a "f" block in place of the "r" block(which i would assume would make the wheelbase longer and less toe). but i was still thinking that it might be too short(but i think that the pic was of a car that you were driving on carpet, so a short wheelbase should be good right?).
