Chris, did you have it last night at SoCal? How did it feel compare to my car?

yours was more stable.. a little more predictable.. mine was very nervous.. um.. edgy.

one thing i noticed was my car had a lot MORE steering on power also.

Hebiki: What kind of spacers do you use? I use the left over spacers from the car, they do not sit flat on the flipped A block. Do you have that problem?

That actually sounds great. If anything the car pushes at SoCal. If I can get more steering especially on power I think it's easier to dial out the edginess.

I used a dremel on my A Block when flipped upside down. This lets the shims sit flat. I beleive I used a 3mm and 2mm shim to get it to sit at normal height. For the dremel, it took less than 20 seconds to do. Maybe less than 10 seconds. You just need to lightly grind into the "hump" or part that curves upwards. Very very simple and easy to do. This gives just enough clearance to let the shims sit flat.

Has anyone used a 6 Caster Block with the arms swept back? Just curious. I was gonna try it this weekend. But I don't know if the rain will hold out or not... Rain sucks.... I need asphalt setups... not carpet... Oh well, I can always bring out the Yok if it rains and we go indoors onto the carpet... That or I'll just race 12th scale.

It was an official practiceday for the upcoming nordic championship today and I spotted a trick drivetrain mod to increase efficency on Steen Graversens car (one of the topdrivers in europe). He had fitted 20T schumacher pulleys on a custommade layshaft coupled with 32T diffpulleys from the 414. To get the required larger spurgear to fit the bulkheads were raised 2 mm. This is similar to what Xray has done to their cars. I will try to get pics of it next weekend at the nordics.

Couldn't you just trim a hole or a groove into the chassis where the spur gear fits to make up for bigger spur? It seems more logical to me then raising the bulkheads up 2mm. That would throw off the center of gravity, the roll center, etc.

Thanks for the info that - thats really cool. I assume the middle one way was locked up as well?
