you can get the hubs in 0 degreee, 0.5 degreee or 1 degree, as they have degrees built into them then they will be ment for a certain side, so if you reversed them, say having the right one on the left it wil take 1 degree off the toe block amount instead of adding it on. its just an alternative to getting a 2 degree rear block,

hope this make sence

I'm guessing he's running 1 degree hubs with the left one on the right side and the right one on the left side (reversed).

Pheyhoe...With the foams we put them on a tyre truer and with a hobby knife take 1 to 2mm off the inside,no more problems.I run stock and use an SD 2 degrees rear toe block.This gives more steering and more straight line speed.I run on concrete or tarmac(use only rubbers on concrete).Hope this helps.

3 degrees of rear toe seems to be too much on the BD. By switching from 3 degrees to 2 degrees we we able to take of 3 tenths a lap easy. High traction asphalt. The car also cornered better and was faster, with no other changes.

I have a question about shock positions if I where to lay the front shocks all the way in on the top shock tower would that soften the front and give me more steering or would i need to move them farther out to soften the front

technically it would slightly soften the front with leaning the shocks in but where you'll feel it is the lack of initial steering and a gain of mid-corner and exit steering. Stand them more upright and you get more initial and less mid-corner and exit. everything is a tradeoff

Hey,

I ran the foams with no problems concerning rubbing.

I ran 40 shr all round,
Red rayspeed springs up front
White at the rear
Front diff, locked centre pulley.
no roll bars

The car was great, direction change was amazing, i chunked the tyres pretty bad in the 3rd qualifyer so it was never quite the same, The car was so smooth, and very quick! really enjoyed driving it. Ended up last in the A because my servo horn broke after a collision at the start of the 2nd final.

I'm not sure what brand foam tires you guys run across the pond but the Parma foams fit my BD fine with no rubbing. The jaco's rubbed on the steering block

for me, laying down the rear shocks usually feels like it has more sidebite but a slower overall feel. Standing them up makes the car react faster but with less sidebite.

64P 25T Final Drive Ratio of 8.96 is a good place to start.

pops,

Thanks for posting your setup. I run on tracks that don't have alot of traction (parking lots). I am running pretty much the kit set up, I just adjust it with tire/insert combos to find the traction. It does always seem to have a little on power push, but it isn't bad.
It seems most have gotton away from the oneways (center and front) to go with locked center and spool. Do you think the car would be or is faster this way or is it just seem easier to drive?

Thanks
