Barry - lol... I don't even know yet... I guess we will all just have to wait and see... ....

kt tracing - One thing that I have found that helps - I take the top half of the transmission case off and I drill 2 holes (that a 4-40 set screw will go in) right where the bearings are. I put the set-screws in, de-bur everything so the bearings aren't bound up and then re-install the top trans case. Then you can adjust the set screws to keep the bearings in place - This helps the bearings from having slop and allowing the gears to jump teeth!!

Manfredo - I tried the R block in place of the F one time - The car lost a ton of steering so I haven't tried it again. I think it's because of the arm angle that you loose the traction. Actually, if you use the R block then the wheel base becomes shorter...

Willis - Pong!?!? Your on!!

Thanks Vera!!

JoshR85 - It depends on what my car is doing really, usually I don't like making my car a lot stiffer - I prefer to work more with camber links, roll bars. When you make the car too stiff then you will start to have trouble with traction rolling.... Just continue to do what you are comfotable with and what has worked for you!!

Bubblestc3 - If you put the front a-arms on the opposite way (shock mounting holes facing the rear) they are actually really close to the same wheel base as the short setting on the standard a-arms. The F block in place of the R was used more for adjusting the rear toe rather than the wheel base. I wanted less in-board toe - tends to free the car up in the corners. I prefer to run some toe in the outside hubs instead of all the toe in the suspension mounts.....

trackdesigner71 - I would go to AE's site. On rubber tires we almost always run a pretty standard set-up - Only minor changes from race to race. Check out Barry's Reedy race set-ups or the ROAR Nats set-ups...

promatchrcr - I dunno, I'm pretty busy at the moment but I hope to make it down there sometime soon!!!

lazyboy - I like to run Cyan fronts with Tan rears. I believe Jaco is making an Orange/Double Pink front and a Double Pink Rear that are similar.

JoshR85 - I run a few Losi parts. I like the rear hubs, they are usually drilled straight and they have the extra holes so I can adjust the rear camber links more. I run Losi castor blocks - I think they flex less and are much stronger. Sometimes I run Losi steering spindles - that's a track to track adjustment depending on the steering feel and responce I'm looking for. I also have run a Losi rear shock tower. This was to get the extra 1-2 holes of extra shock position to play with....
