You can see the steering blocks on the pic of his car on this page: http://www.cmldistribution.co.uk/new...iew=0000000187

Basically, a hole has been drilled right in front of the std holes on the steering blocks, and the the special steering rack is further forward sot hat when the links are in this position, they are perfectly parellel, i.e at 90* to the chassis. I was told this is to achieve more lock. The hpi c-hubs seemed a straight fit too me
As a close personal friend and team mate of Chris's he sent me the following pic of the steering arrangement on his car.




As you can see he ran old style MR4TC castor blocks, the balljoint drilled 4mm closer to kingpin and used the ackerman plate produced for the Japanese Nationals which has holes further forward. Also a 0.5 mm shim to reduce the lock slightly to minimise the wheel wobble and chatter when they are cranked over so much.

Why does it have an "R" on it then?

The suspension mounts on the BD are normally the individual ones marked "F", his is a one piece by the looks with the "R".

I have a mate with a JRXS and he runs in board toe out and reckons its made the car alot better and I was going to try it, but the rear toe blocks won't fit on the front. I hadn't tried changing the back mount, so will have a look at that tonight.

I was actually looking at making a custom block for the front mount to try and get the same effect, but changing the rear block is easy.

From what my mate tells me it gives a big improvement mid corner and exit. His car is the fastest at our track my a huge amount and the car can out corner anything!! A guy with an Xray 05 tried it yesterday and loves the change as well and his car is now hooking up alot better.
