I don't think they're the same and I don't know what anti-dive you're refering.

Isn't it the reduction of front dive under hard braking?

rcruv. To achieve the kickup you mentioned, do you insert spacers beneath the front ballstuds of the front arms?

My kickup I belive right now is the kit standard though you can put some washer under the a-arms to change the kickup.

I think you're talking about the anti-squat which is the inclination of the rear arm axle backward. The more the angle, the harder your car will "dive" at the rear upon acceleration and hence the less under-steer out of the corner.

Diva I think I know what anti-squat is. I'm talking about the front end. It just occured to me that the kickup rcruv described was labelled as 'anti-dive' in a thread I read somewhere. This is what I want to find out.

Has anyone worn out the grub screw hole on the front center shaft adapter?

I'm having difficulties in getting a spare since most stores don't have the replacement adapter (6031) in stock.

Any ideas for finding a replacement would be helpful.

There are option Spacers with various size to help change the Castor angle of the car. This is because they do not have different Angle C Blocks at this moment. In order to change the Castor Angle in the front and rear, you need to add spacers for increasing or decreasing castor angle.

Almost...

They both refer to the tendency of a car end to dip as an effect of weight transfer during braking or acceleration. Anti-kickup is for the front end while anti-squat is for the rear end.

If I'm not mistaken, the thread is "Faster corner like a pro"

Here's the website to Alex but there is not a lot of information on the car there. You can use Bablefish to translate it and understand most of it.
