Thanks,

I have a new set of blocks in all degree's.....the problem is still there. The only other thing that I can think of is that the problem is in the chassis somewhere. The chassis isn't tweaked but maybe it's molding wrong somewhere on the right side in the rear.

I believe the problem lies in the roll centre blocks or mounts. If they are not in line properly when fastened it will change the angle of toe in. The hub carriers and the rear arm tolerence doesnt change.

Have a look at that and see if that fixes it.

Trinity sells blue aluminum screws, but I don't know that they offer them in a "kit" form.

Yeah, I had the aluminum polished, then anodized red, so it'll go nicely with all of my "chrome" titanium

i just got a xxx-s g+ and i need some setup advice for carpet

i havent been racing onroad any for a while so i dont remember much

what tires are recommended we run foams and i was told plaid fronts and magenta rears trc tires but i would rather run something other than trc tires if i can speedmind tires are perferable because they are cheaper and easier to get

and what can i do to stop the shocks from leaking it seems the front shocks are nearly empty after a little more than a weeks time or is it because i need to rebuild them weekly

PTP - You are going to want to rebuild your front shocks if they constantly leak. Take the shock completely apart, and take the cartridge apart. Inside there are two O-rings, and the plastic spacer. Replace the two O-rings, and make sure the inside of the cartridge is cleaned out with motor spray.

When you install the new O-rings, if you have it, put some AE Green Slime on them. If you don't, a drop of shock oil will work too, just so that the o-rings aren't dry when you push the shock shaft back through them.

Also make sure the threads on your cartridge are in good shape, and that you tighten it well when you rebuild the shocks. They need to be more than just finger-tight.

the shocks are brand new and ive had to rebulid them once already

i put a drop of oil on the shafts when i was building them like it said to do in the instructions

should i tighten the cartridges with a wrench or something

i will replace the cartridges if thats what i need to do but they are really new so i dont think they are the problem
