Are the V2 blocks the ones with the third hole spaced a bit more outside and back than the standard kit blocks?

Like these?

Yep. They are only a new part. So might take some to filter out to all the HB stockists. The part number is HB68489.

Can anyone answer what the new V2 spindle blocks are for? i.e. - why did they change it again?

I know they look like they move it further out than the TCXX blocks, but they are in between the OLD OLD steering blocks and the TCXX blocks. The new V2 blocks are a modified version of the original blocks from the Cyclone and TCX.

I do know a Norcal local that always has a solid 17.5 setup on his HB cars, and he goes by "Advil" on these forums. I would contact him and see if he has a solid starting point for you specific for Norcal Raceway in the 17.5 class.

Sorry I couldn't be as much direct help.

I am using the stock TCXX motor mount. On the setup sheet the top deck screws that are filled in with black should be blank. I don't know why it did that when I converted the .pdf to .jpg for posting. I do have a 2mm top deck on order...next weekend we will see if it works.
