Less caster- usually more nimble in lower speed corners and more initial turn in. Usually a little bit less overall bite.

I tend to like the kit 4 deg blocks for everything. I've tried 6's off and on, but find that in places I loose performance, I'm not gaining enough in other areas to make it worthwhile. I have been told a lot of the team are using 6 deg blocks though, so it's worth a shot

HPI Racing/HB no longer control the inventory side of things in the US. Hobbico is the exclusive distributor and decides what items, and how often it is restocked. This is all a fairly recent thing. As a result, the HPI Racing/HB website no longer will sell any items on the website. Hobbico's webfront is actually the very well known Tower Hobbies website. They will have the latest stock and more than likely be the most reliable source for parts.

I was originally planning on going to Reedy, but the real 9-5 job is sending me to Montreal and France during that time.

I got to hang out with Fred Hubbard on Friday at Nor- Cal. He's a great guy and gave me all kinds of setup tips for my tcxx.

Does anyone know the largest 48dp spur that will fit in the car. Currently running an 84 tooth but would like to get to about 90 teeth. Just not sure that it will fit.
