When you guys/gals put on the 6 degree front caster blocks did the rims rub against the front bottom part of the a-arms when you turned? my a-arm (by the front e-clips) have alot of white rim dust there...did you grinf away some material to leave a gap?

BRANT, I GOT THE PART NUMBERS. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP. YOU MAY HEAR MORE FROM ME IN THE FUTURE. I'VE BEEN A LOSI PRODUCT FAN SINCE THERE WAS LOSI. NORMALLY IN THE PAST I WAS A 1/12 GUY, BUT GOT THE BUG LAST SUMMER TO GO SEDAN RACING. OUTDOOR THE CAR WAS REALLY GOOD. INDOOR ON CARPET HAS'NT GONE AS WELL. WE RUN 19T ON FOAM. I HAVE AN RDX KICKING MY $$S RIGHT NOW AND CAN'T TAKE IT. THE CAR SEEMS TO BE HOOKED UP TO GOOD AT THIS POINT. IT SCRUBBS SPEED OFF IN HIGH ACCELERATION AREAS OF THE TRACK. I'M WORKING ON IT!
ANY HELP YOU GUYS HAVE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
THANKS....MIKE

Your welcome Mike! I have not had my car on the rug yet but I may get it there this weekend. I agree with R/C Anonymous about the Paul C. carpet set-up. I ahve heard good things about it.

I had the same white dust when using the 4 deg. so I don't really know if its the hubs or the brackets.

Default SET UP

I just finished the set up you all recommended, the Paul C. Tammies Hobbies had the correct offset hubs so that screw up is fixed. We are going to practice this Saturday, so I'll let you know how it works out. The car feels real good on the bench! Thanks again
see ya.mike

thanks.
dstyles=I think so, when i have ran a spool,,"not to often" it does wear parts faster...the best thing to do is pack the joint with grease when you build them before you put on the shrink wrap...The thin losi light brown stuff works good..,,,The one side thing,,i have no idea,,,maybe hard brakeing to the right more than left or vise versa....L8
