I am in the process of putting a new setup on the car. The box asphalt setup yielded a very loose car and so I am trying something new. I noticed while on the setup board I too have a rear toe discrepancy appx .50-.75 from one side to the other. I took apart the rear end and measured all pieces involved and after finding the parts to be within acceptable tolerance (less than .01) I reassembled leaving the screws loose and carefully working my way around and tightening. When done I had reduced the toe difference to less than .25mm.
If I were to want an even more accurate rear toe what is the solution. I am running 1 piece rear and 2 piece front blocks, I do not want to switch to a 1 piece front block at the price of losing grip. do you add spacers or sand the roll center block?
Thanks.

What version of the Litemodz drive shaft did you have/use Yokemad?

I have a set of the Evo 2 ones - i think thats right - that i haven't used yet, but am hoping all the bugs are ironed out...

Default weight distribution

Hi,

How does adding weight to the front or back of the car affect the handling,
any ideas?

I was led to believe adding weight to the front will give you more front traction, and adding rear weight will aid in rear traction. So, if you need your car to turn, add weight in the front. If your rear end is too loose, add weight in the rear. hope this helps.

Also consider weight transfer. Adding weight to the rear will yield more off power steering and adding weight to the front will only yield less ON power steering. Hope this helps!

I reckon They were the Latest model but I used them @ultra Tight Carpet track about 10-15 minutes, they are not Ideal if you need extreme steering angles

If you're racing @mid. to Big size Track You should try Them a.s.a.p
You gonna Feel The difference ! They are Great

Need a little more on power steering on a low to mid traction track. I am running stock asphalt set up in mod. Any suggestions? I noticed the asphalt set up uses 2 piece mount in front. That is only difference in my set up. I currently only have the 1 piece block. Will this give me the on power steering I need?

96/48 or 47 gives you 3.8/3.88. That's where I heard you should start.

In blinky mode, they are all *totally* the same.
