To get to the Xray kit front width ( 1.5mm with no sweep ) what is used ?

Two C's ? Two D's or Two E's ? or Two F's ?

are the steps between letters .5mm ? or ???

Thanks
The steps are .75mm (measured from the center of each pin hole)
D's in FF & FR are equivalent to kit.

Fred, thanks for the clarification .
Do you know if Nor-Cal is going to stock the optional exotek toe blocks, or should I call them to bug them about doing so ?

That rear toe config should put you around 3.5* and the front would be like running 2.25mm (1.5mm + .75mm) in the FF with arm sweep, so overall your car is pretty wide.

Not sure Jake, I'm sure they would appreciate a "heads-up" from you about stocking them

Hi All,

Here are the block widths for pin spacing;

BLOCK HINGE PIN SPACING FROM CENTER TO CENTER;

XB= 40.75

A= 43MM

B= 43.75MM

C= 44.5MM

D= 45.25MM

E= 46MM

New XC/c and XA/a split blocks just went into production to give you even more options

Congrats Aaron Young- Made the A-Main at Reedy in both 17.5 and 13.5 running the XR3'12! Arron reported he had some electrical problems all weekend but even so still made the big show in both classes.

Thumbs up

I was the other Exotek XR3 '12 T3 conversion that made the 17.5 A main at the Reedy race. Aaron helped me with setup all week which was instrumental in me making the "show". Thanks again .
