The 1745 kit is the best deal. Gets you everything you need to roll and the old school suspension works very well. If you want to run different front suspension later you can run anything you want...everything fits.

When running old school front end, you shim with parts header cards. About how much of a degree does one header card give say for camber? Are the old school blocks already the machined ones that come in the sport kit? Also running 17.5 blinky mode at our track (first year running wgt cars). What is a good 17.5 for the car. i have an old Tekin but just wondering if any newer ones are better. Thanks

You shouldn't need to adjust anything with the OSFE

The old school was notorious for the mold being off over time. We've had 100's of arms machined correct to the kingpin. Comes with 2 camber 4 caster. With a 12th scale it was much better to take camber out if necessary since you wouldn't lose ride height you'd gain it.

The 1st Gen Tekin motors were great for boosted 2s
But you will need something more up to date for 1s blinky

Since then all arms have come in 1 degree camber 4 degrees caster and just overall more material taken off for ride height in 12th scales. I for a while kept using the 2/4 ones since I had them and took a couple spare sets when I heard the next batch would be different. A degree was a brown shim (.010) and a piece of the 3M double sided tape we use.

The car kits all come with machined correct arms stock. If you order extra or even full front end kits make sure it says machined.

Bump it up.....Anybody else racing these cars? I raced mine for the first time last week and had a ball. Any team drivers or racers have any more setup information to share?

Thanks,
Todd
