if anyone could clarify that would be great.

if it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me.
His front shims are 2.5mm under the ball stud the rear shims are Alittle blurry not the front the rear shims are 1mm under the ball stud in case you got it mixed up and the 4.2 and 3.5 is referring to the toe blocks the kit comes with 3.5 in front on both front blocks the 4.2 is a optional block that adds arm sweep i hope this is what you wanted to know

Tested the x brace front and rear on technical carpet track last night. I didn't run the fastest time, in fact slightly slower than a 14 that's setup for the track, around .2 - .3 per lap. I like the way the car feels with the brace and I believe it will be faster when I actually have time to properly dial the car in. The only setup change I wanted to do before the club racing night was over was try the FMC and it gave me more steering than I needed and the car was really nervous out of the corners.

Basic carpet setup for the 14 will work fine as a base, as long as you're not using fmc and x brace.

Hi

Does the 14 gear diff fit in the 15? Don't feel like buying another diff for the front.

Has anyone driven an xray t4 15 and a bd7 14 or 15, what is the difference in driving style required to make the cars work? The bd7 always feels fast but you have to drive it carefully.

Thanks

Marc

Thanks for the info but are you then saying it doesn't fit?

Yes the diffs cross over between cars. 14 can be used in a 15 car.
