Can you list the part number for the 6 degree caster blocks?

Thank's Smokin
The reason I asked is that a new track is opening on the gold coast and is outdoor sticky asphalt (long and flowing) and I run rubbers and one way and also a new track at beaudesert is indoor concrete. So I may get away with one tyre/diff setup for both track's.
Thank's Mate

I found the 2 degree blocks increased initial turn-in steering...I usually use them on really tight tracks. Horsham is on my list of stops this year...see you guys there.

Does anyone know the Hot Bodies part# for the wheel axles? I am running HPI knuckles for my carpet conversion. I am currently using the axles from the original 415 suspension. They work but require alot of shimming and the Hot Bodies parts fit perfectly, obviously because they are made for them.

Thanks in advance,

Just double checking that you are using these on the Non-LW suspension correct?
For the LW it is 2 and 4d only. If you want 6 you have to add kick up to the front toe block.

I hate DV Took a hit of newbie and killed a bearing and bearing holder.
Know anyone who has them in stock in the uk? As this is a really odd part to fail.

HarshGuy,
Where did you order your turnbuckles from?
