I am looking at getting the arms and 42mm uni shafts, but anyone else tried the different toe blocks method? Part numbers if possible please.

Thanks, just getting tired of how it snaps with the slightest bump. A friend of mine who has an Evo V can smash it into anything and still get away with it.

I use the short arms on my MRE and I found the car works very well with them. Curently I hold the track record by almost an entire lap!

Default Crazy Suspension Blocks

Yes; Tamiya Suspension Blocks are crazy. They should just mark them with a normal number.

I was looking for a Tamiya Suspension Block Chart. I want to set 2-Degrees Rear Toe-In on My TB Evo 5.

Take Care

check the excel section on my website, there is a chart in there.

Basically, the blocks are actually quite logical, once you get your head round it. The reason for the (slightly) odd systems is that the X series came out after the 2004 worlds, and Tamiya had been using A, B, C etc for marking the block width on the 414 for at least 2-3 years already... would have been more confusing to change it...

Anyway, from narrowest to widest. Each block gives 0.5 toe difference,

XD, XC, XB, XA, X, A, B, C, D, E

For two degrees on an Evo5, try A/E or X/D (Front Rear / Rear Rear). X/D will give the car (slightly) more grip on power, and allow it to rotate quicker in the middle of the turn, as it has a narrower track width (distance between the tyre centre lines).

Hey TryHard; Thanks for the info.

It looks like the best thing to do is to get all of the Suspension Blocks and Tune your kit from there.....?
-Those Suspension Blocks cost about $11.00 - $14.00 each.

Thanks

Take Care
