Name changed so people would know me by my real name (actually nick name hehe).

For the steering setup with lowered steering blocks.. I run this setup as well. But make sure you don't have bump steer. If you do, you will want to change the shimming under the ball stud for the steering linkage. Mine right now only has 2mm under the ball. This could change as you change arm spacing moving back or forward... and other changes as well.

hehe, thought that pic might come in handy

And yeah randy, seems we agree on that the narrow car isn't suited to low grip.... Although I am not running mine anywhere near as narrow as yours, I think my car width 187mm.

I'm gonna play around with the widths again at a club meet next weekend...

Later
Ed

Default Narrow Car

When you use the narrow blocks are you spacing the hubs out?
Or are you using the same spacing giving less overall width?

Quick answer, I'm running the silver 6mm hexes. And no I don't space it out when running the car narrower. The overall width gets reduced.

Personally I hate running spacers on the hex's. I feel that it means that the wheel isn't supported properly, it's the main reason i use the 6mm ones. If you happen to run wheels with shallow hexes, with a 4mm hex+spacer combo, you probably have around 2mm or so trasmitting drive to the wheel, not good in my book.
However it is just my view point, and i'd be interested to see what others have to say

BTW with car at max width (ie using D blocks) it is just legal width.

HiH

Yes Ed, I see what you are saying, but I am more interested what difference it makes when you change only 1 parameter.
I see spacers as a nescessary evil. (maybe evil's a bit harsh)

Anthony, I just bought myself a 415 too and was told by Korey I can still use my XRAY springs and I guess AE springs work too.
