Default Blocks X.. and without X

Can anybody explain me differencies between a X (for example XA) blocks and blocks without "X" before letter (for example A, B,...)?
I'm a new to tamiya and I'm confused :-)

Thank you

thanks.
The standard on the rear is XD-B, which is the narrowest setting with 3 degrees toe-in. I can't remember the front (I'm at work) but It may have been A-XB, which is 1.5 toe-out.

As for droop, toe-in, camber etc, to be honest I never really checked the standard settings of the car before racing it, but I assume they'd be fairly normal, ie: 1 degreee negative camber, no toe-in, 3mm droop etc.

TryHard where did you get the info on the blocks? I can't find ANY info for them on Tamiyausa. Thanks and nice site.

Sup Josh, call me dumb but I can't even find Marc's setup (for the 2006 Reedy race) on the Tamiyausa site? Or is it on a diff country site? Anyway I'm new to the 415msx and just have a lot of questions. Thanks

Hi,
Cheers, I actually made the chart up myself... honestly the toe-blocks do make sense when you work with them for a while...

Quick Q, noticed both Corey and Marc were running there upper links in hole 3 in the bulkhead (forward hole).... any clue why? (Josh or Martin can chip in here too ).

I did actually try it on my car over the weekend, (carpet, 1-way), seemed to improve the front of the car... it looks like a more natural position for the link too.

Cheers
Ed

I think hole 3 is very close to what the original 415 hole was set to.

Ed, Corey's setup is middle hole.

drew85, some of us use flush cuts/dremel to remove material to prevent wheel/arm rubbing as illustrated in the attached image.

i have never ran a spool. what are the advantages/ disadvantages. my local track is not a big sweeping track and i dont see a need for the oneway. do you think if a run my front diff with these setups would it make a drastic difference. want to try with a diff. thanx.

Very good question! Speaking of a front diff - does anyone know exactly when the Tamiya front diff is coming out? I thought I read June or july, somewhere?
