I ran my rev7 for the first time in 3 months at the weekend. First time for 17.5 blinky, not a class in the UK till recently.
I was chasing a handling problem for most of the day, turned out to be a schoolboy error with the rear axle not centred!
I did change the front blocks at one point, and found they have different castor macined in compared to the older set on the car. I used to quite like the feel of the lower castor, can i shim the rear of the old skool front blocks with shims and keep other settings the same?
The 17.5 is interesting, certainly very different to what I am used to, lots of concentration needed even though the speeds are much slower.

Shimming the front end works fine I use a combination of the CRC fine tune ride height kit and the Speed Merchant ones cut into bits to fit either end or side depending on what you are looking for.

It is a good practice to change out both arms if you need to change arms. Batch to batch they may vary slightly. They are packaged in matched pairs so you change both you are assured to have a match left to right.

That's something I need to get back to. My regular job has been taking up most of my time lately.

Just wanted to let everyone know about our new 12th and 10th scale pan car tire truing adapter. This really helps get a true running tire by clamping the wheel the same way as when the wheel is attached to the hub with the mounting screws. Check it out at www.teamtamale.com.
