When should we use one more than another and which in front and rear ?
I usually always run the 3 deg suspension mount in the rear. This gives 3 deg of toe in, which is the preferred setting for most classes. It provides very stable cornering, and good balance. Sometimes if I want to free up the rear end, I run the 2 or 2.5 deg rear block. This will give the car more steering through the middle and exit.

For the front, I usually start with the 1.5 deg block. This gives 1.5 deg of arm sweep. When you run less arm sweep (0 or 1 deg suspension mount), this will make the car enter the corner more aggressive, but be smoother through the middle and exit of the corner. The more sweep you run (2, 2.5, or 3 deg) will give slightly smoother steering on entry, but have more steering through the middle and exit of the corner.

Hope that helps!

Thanks,


I'm sorry but I still have some questions to lead: what are the "2.0deg blocks" and the tires are the Solaris? and if that strength?
Thanks in advance

I need to add info that option parts Barry had on his cars.

- HPI Shock Springs (gold up front/Silver in rear)
- HB's ceramic diff balls
- 4mm Hex hubs (used in front)
Hi I noticed that Barry is using 2.0 deg on FF and FR block. What's the effect compared to the stock FF FR blocks?

Yes thanks

Question related to that.

What is the difference (or not) between the toe-in given by the suspension mount, from the turnbuckles and the C-hubs ??

Hi Ali,

The difference between using the 2.0 deg blocks for FF/FR and the stock block is that the hinge pin width. With using 2.0 deg block for both FF/FR, we can widen the hinge pin width to 44.8mm. (Stock one is 42mm)

The benefit on using wider block is that we will be able to go softer overall but still not much roll. I can also say the front end will have more stability that will eventually generates more crispier turn in.

We have been trying this for long time and getting very good result with it.
To do this, you will have to make another two holes on the chassis to put the block on, and you will have to dremel the block due to the interference with both steering linkage and front drive belt.

You can also choose the width 43mm by using 1.5 deg block.

Let me know if you need further info.
Thank you.

how does that effect the rear toe angle ? How do you get back to 3 degrees rear toe ?

What width hex do you use also what is over all width (190 ?) ?

Thanks.

In practice it widens the roadway but having 0 of anterior open arms?
If possible you might know the brand and tire compound.

Thanks in advance

Does anyone know why I can't set my regular Cyclone to 5mm ride height using TC shock towers? My shock rings are all the way up, and the ride height is 7-8mm.

Can someone shed a light to this confused soul?
