I am running the new solid SD-300FR with 1mm spacers and it was designed to clear the belt on the BD. This came out with the new SD-300RF for the rear of the car. The old style are not being produced anymore, this is a part that is being changed with no new part number.
Thats the ticket, he was running a 0.5 shim under all the mounts on the car to raise the roll centre to induce some roll, thus grip and steering. Stafford is quite technical and low grip.

How/why will inboard toe effect the handleing of the car? Do you have to set the outboard toe to its original setting, or just run with the slight increase in overall toe?

Will the SD-300RF fit directly to the FR position without modification? I understand that this will effect roll center and will need to remove 1mm in order to restore factory roll center settings.
Yes inboard toe out, increases reaction on steering, not a huge amount though. You have to reset overall toein.

The blocks will fit straight on the front, but you will have to run 2mm worth of washers on the car front mount and ideally 1mm worth of spacers on the car rear mounts. I would'nt recommend this as it raises the roll centre too much.

Look what I started...

The mounts are out of stock here and are on back order with Yokomo Japan. I'll have to try and track some down.

Ask about the part because the older solid mounts are being replaced by the newer ones. Those parts will not be available as they change to the new designs for belt clearance.

I just found some and ordered them...

My brother is a fitter/turner, so doing any machining won't be a problem. I was close to getting him to make some mounts, but this was easier.

Does anyone know someone who makes a modified steering rack that allows you to mount your links further forward?

thanks for the info, let me see if i have this correct, i should change to the one piece blocks, and if i use the sd-300RF part on the front rear it will give a little inboard toe and give a little more turn in. so i need to order two of the SD-300RF

I noticed you posted in the Hobby Habit thread, for that track around about 5mm of droop front and rear is a good starting point.

You can change those to get different suspension geometries, kick up, anti dive etc etc. Leave them standard when you build the kit though.

Does anyone have part numbers for the XB buggy ballcups and joints with the 2mm hex in them?
I looked on the yokomo USA site and it had ZC-207 and ZC-206 which are the standard part numbers. Does this mean the 2mm hex is just an upgrade to the existing parts?
