Does anyone know which swing shafts need to be used when running a ball diff in the front of the car? I've heard you can run the ones from the F201 or the 415MS. Are they aluminum or steel?

What are the part numbers for these universal shafts?

You have to run the 46mm swing shafts. They come in both aluminum and steel. I don't know the part number off hand, but I know the shafts do come with the LW suspension kit.

Try the A-bridge block up front and 2 degrees toe in the rear...

Car gets good steering, rear traction yet still rotates well

Default trying to avoid doing it myself...

Has anyone added information to the suspension block toe chart to list the width of the car?

Orange/ dbl Pink fronts & dbl pink rears are the only way to go.

Already have both of those things on the car I also raised the rear blocks up 1mm to get the back end to rotate better. I did have 1.5mm spacers under them which worked even better, but the belt hit the rear A block. I'll grind down the block where the belt was hitting and experiment with raising it higher yet. I also ditched the center 1 way pulley and that helped with turn-in. Switching to the 2 degree caster blocks helped as well.

I agree with this one, that has been the best combo I have run.

By the way guys, I'm sure this have been already asked, but how does the stock 415 blocks compares to the TB Evo 3 ones in terms of RC position ? I've got all the Evo 3 blocks and was wondering if they'd be of any use...

What would running the front one way without the mid one way do?

The 415 blocks are a little lower than the Evo3/4 blocks. Approximately 1mm lower. Hole pattern is identical. When I need a higher RC than normal, I typically use Evo blocks on my 415 to avoid having too many spacers under them.

Randy, have you tried going back to 4 degree caster? The 2 degree caster doesn't necessarily give more steering throughout the corner, just more initial and a "twitchy" feeling. Also have you tried running 1D and A bridge with a maybe .7-1.0mm spacer underneath the A in the front? Try lengthening the rear camberlinks. Drop the front inner camberlinks a bit. Put in about 7 degrees of front camber (just kidding) hehe.
