why don't you 2 guys run the kit setup for now?

And LEARN how to set up a car by reading the xray setup book, which you can download online. It applies to all cars, not just xray's.

This is the only way in which you will learn.

With low grip, your car will need to take more roll...

So to do that, you can remove the spacer between the chassis and the pivot blocks... How much do you have?

Mixing setups is the worse thing you can do...

What droop setting would you use or would you stay the same as before?

Are there any HB DCJs alternatives? They just don't last, I should of taken a picture before I threw them out. Basically the cross pin snapped and in the process it ripped through the highlighted bit.


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

They lasted about 10 packs, which is a bit of a bummer. I didn't expect it to break so quickly coz I only drift with my TCX. Tho I do run a 3.5T....

The DCJ HB are among the most durable on the market, my DCJ have two years..., with a 3.5T and high steering angles any double cardan break easy...
For a 3.5T recommend the steel CVD

What's the difference between the standard knuckles, the newer 3 hole one's and using Tamiya ones ?

The behavior of the steering is less nervous and more predictable, are very similar to the Tamiya but do not require shims.

I must be doing something wrong. But I will give the steel ones a try. My only concern is chatter, but if the steel ones have less that's awesome.
