I want to upgrade to the uPro suspension mounts but I don't understand the numbers on the graphic. For example if I want to run rear low roll center do I use the higher numbers or lower numbers?

The mounts do not change the hinge pin height, they are all the same height. They are 0.5mm lower than the "H" mount. (which is the low roll center setting. 0.5 on the lower pin is equal to aprox. 2.5mm of shims on the inner upper link)

The numbers in the chart refer to how wide they are, to adjust toe and arm sweep.

To adjust the roll center use the shim kit under the mounts, like with the stock mounts.

Not required and they will bend and even break. Stick to the composite ones.

I have to agree with the others that the V2 Aluminum Steering Blocks bend or break too easily. We do keep a few sets in stock for those that insist on trying them.

We have a few of the Team Tamale 7075 blocks left. They are expensive but nearly indestructible

Default Main belt tension

How tight should the main belt be? should you be able to spin the front wheels by hand and the whole belt rotate freely all the way to the spur? (no motor attached)

Can anyone suggest a good new budget 17.5 motor for a Photon EX.
Also I maybe able to get a Trinity D4 17.5 would that be a better choice.
Thanks

Anybody here using the uPro suspension mounts for the Photon ex? I bought a set from Rc Market and took the car to the track for testing ....I can't get the car to turn tight in the corners I have a tremendous amount of push. I tried about every type of settings springs,oils,camber links amound other things and no luck. Any suggestions?

File back the rear facing side of the front arms so that you can move the front wheelbase more towards the rear. We found this helped on tight tracks.
