Like this...

Basically gives a little more rear traction. The traction rolling was mostly an issue during practise, where the initial bite was super high, mostly because of having 15-20 cars running around solidly all day...

Do the split blocks change flex characteristics? If so, is it significant?

Whoa... why not just install the split suspension mounting blocks? Wouldn't that render the same or similar results?

well I couldnt resist, I had to pull my mount out and and cut it, and after fitting the car back up, when I "flex" the car, you can see there is a fair amount of movement between the now "2 peice" mount. Got a new mount on the way also, hoping to try the them back to back sometime soon.

Hello again

I received my parts which I ordered a week back, installed them on the car and im just waiting for the 46mm steel bones.
While rebuilding everything, i re-checked a few things, first off : I know people say you must have abit of play around the wishbones, hubs etc ... but i had a look around the whole chassis and in some place i get 0,3mm of play, and some others 0,6mm of play.
So the amount of play on my car is between 0,3 - 0,6 mm. Is this too much ?
Should i try to minimise it ? Btw, if I have 0,3mm on the left side, i have 0,3mm on the right side too, this aplys to everywhere on the chassis ( wishbone, hubs ...)

Thank you
