What size are the standard huddy droop setup blocks ?? the ones in the manual

Also just bought a used 2011.
How do I tell if a gear diff is Xray, 3Racing or Atomic etc (so I know what spares to get for it)

Cheers

Well, that would depend on what tracks you race at and your setup preference. I would not want a more flexible chassis where I race.

A few more setup questions and I think I am done, until next week when i will have to retune my car depending on the outcome of the races on Friday!

On the setup sheet it lists "o-ring on shaft" as a setup option in the shock section. What is this referring to and how does it effect handling?

2nd - I think I want to try gear diffs. The spec r's have been updated so they don't leak if I remember correctly, or at least can be assembled in a manner that will prevent them from leaking. I just want to confirm though that you need to run 50mm drive shafts with them. You can't run the 52mm shafts that came with the car right?

Sorry, I know the gear diff thing has been discussed but I wanted a clear response so I cannot misinterpret/confuse the info.

Placing an o-ring on the shock shaft is done to limit the compression of the shock. You can think of it as a bump stop. I kind of look at it as a band-aid fix for a car that leans too much or traction rolls. The last time I fiddled with external limiters it just seemed to make the car eratic...

Some people I know have had good luck with the spec-r diffs not leaking, but my luck has been hit or miss. I've got some that don't leak and others that I can't get to stop leaking. For the price of the spec-r diff + their aluminum outdrives you can purchase an xray diff that comes with the aluminum outdrives and doesn't leak a drop.

With the spec-r diffs you must run the 50mm driveshafts in the back of the car unless you want to widen the wheel track.

That was the overall feeling I got when initially reading about the diffs. With the Xray gear diffs you can run the stock driveshafts right?

I ask cause if one were to buy the spec-r gear diff and the corresponding drive shafts, the price would be about the same as just getting the xray gear diff, and it wont leak.


Also, the o-ring goes on the outside of the shock body right...on the shaft? That would limit the about of up travel on the shock.

It would be nice if all areas or options on the setup sheet were addressed in the setup manual. Maybe they are and i missed them in the countless times I have read and reread it!
