Default TC3 setup

Hi, I was looking at a Mike Blackstock Carpet setup off the AE site, and he is running -2* kickup. I cant find out how to accomplish this. There isnt anything in the manual for negative kickup. Am I reading it wrong or is there something Im missing? Thanks.

There are two different ways to accomplish this.

1. you can run the F - 0 block up front and put 0.035 inch spacers under the F block

2 you can shave 0.035 inches from the bottom of the F - 0 block. This method will require machining of the bumper as well. NOT FUN.

The first method is easier than the second but for carpet racing (as I understand it) due to the small tire diameters the lower suspension arm inclination gets all screwed up and it is important to try and lower the hinge pins as much as possible. Therefore for carpet racing method number 2 is your best bet.

Why 0.035 inches?
2degrees = amount of desired kickup or anti-dive

1inch = longetudinal support length (Width) of front suspension arms

small angle approx.

(2degrees)*(pi())/180*(1inch) = 0.035 inches
