I'm having to run 115% D/R (with EPA's at 100%R, 95%L) to get my desired amount of lock... does this sound right to you?

Regardless, have to say, feels so smooth to drive, and much lighter in the hands too, a BIG improvement

Cheers

I have a question for you about the suspension blocks. I have read threw this thread and have learned a lot. One thing I have read is that the front rear suspension block is upside down. I know that's how thekit tells you to build it. Do you ever run it the other way? If so why?

When people run 0.0mm under FF and 0.5mm under FR that's with the suspension block upside down?

The front rear block is upside down to clear the front drive belt. You cannot install it the normal way, it's going to touch and drag the belt. The only other option is to run the split blocks.

I know you answered your own question, but in all honesty I wouldn't know anyway, as I have a pet hate of the battery 'hooks'. Look ugly, add weight I'm the wrong place, and there are better a simpler methods out there (like a little carbon piece stuck to the bottom of the cells to sit in the holes).
Rant over, lol

Thank you, it's a second hand car so I didn't build it myself.

+1 - I actually bought new batteries (with bumps to fit the holes in the chassis) just to get rid of those damn ugly hooks.

But when I did use the hooks (1 race!), I did notice that the steering was very close to the hook, and I can see how a misplaced shim can create problems.

On a 416X, what is the best gearing for a BL17.5 Duo? What spur/pinion should be the best for the 416? People just tell me to run a certian ratio for the motor but they don't know what spur to tell me for a start.

Thanks~

What speed control are you using? How big is the track? Is the class you're running it in boosted?
